A visit to the dentist

I am actually very lazy to visit the dentist. But in this month itself, I had made a few visits. The first time was when I went to see my usual dentist. She told me she wouldn't do stuff like extracting of teeth. Minor chores would be done by her partner. But since the latter was on leave, I had no choice but to visit another new dentist.

Last Thursday, I had visited the new dentist and she had extracted my wisdom tooth. She had advised me to have scaling done on my teeth. The last time I had scaling done was a year ago.

 So this morning, I decided to visit the dentist again. I had waited an hour before I was called in.
In fact I was the only one waiting until later another person joined me.

She was attending to the other patient so I started clicking away.
 I was waiting patiently for about 5 minutes or so..

The scaling was done in about 20 minutes and I like the way she did. So professional.
I had expected it to be expensive.
It's RM50.

Next dental check-up in 6 months time.

Have you gone for your dental check-up yet?

  3. couple of months later, the filling came off and i started to feel the pain again, i went to see another dentist somewhere else, wanted to fill it again but she told me the tooth cannot be filled anymore because it's already broken into two!! so i had it extracted, for once and for all.. the charges for the extraction was one third of that filling, if i knew i would have it extracted on the first hand..

    2. Normally the dentist will try to save the tooth unless it's in a bad condition.

  4. You are a good customer to go back for the scaling. I find it weird that your regular dentist does not want to extract teeth but to leave all the extraction to the partner.

    1. I always trust the one and the only one dentist. But she has a lot of appointments to be filled so minor chores will be carried out by her partner.

  10. Good afternoon wenn!

    Hmm, I have the habits to go for my annual dental check up, usually it's in December. It's always better to be safe than sorry, call me kiasu but I personally think it's important to have our teeth checked before it's too 'late' ;)

    1. Oh, this dentist applied gel onto my gum first before she injected it. I didn't feel any pain.

      I didn't claim too as it's my personal affair.

  15. I wonder why most people have no phobia to visit dentists? I had terrible phobia for many years since small to visit the deadly dentists. My wife managed to hypnotize me after getting her clinical hypnosis cert. I managed to go without fear since last year and surgeon found so many problems inside my mouth!!!

    1. I had to extract few teeth besides doing 3 Canal root Treatments and 3 Crownings!! Goodness me!

      Well, the surgeon quickly pointed out smartly to me that I must have fallen down when I was young and hit my gums with internal injuries. When grown up later, most victims would develop dead roots which requires Root Canal Treatments!

      The dental surgeon was so accurate and precise!!

    2. It has been over a year, and I am still getting treatments for the last tooth!!!


      Ah Niu the famous singer reported in entertainment news that he had to extract 16 teeth as they were all rotten & decayed besides crooked (his trademark)!!! he would have tooth implants which would take him 15 months to finish all. I am not that bad yeah!

    3. I wouldn't dare to do any crowning and root treatment. Sounds so scary. My sister had teeth implant and it cost her a lot.

  16. You are right. I think most people don’t visit their dentist until they experience tooth problems. That is not good, especially if they want to keep those pearly whites. So, even if you have zero cavities, it’s better to make sure it stays that way than burden yourself with the expenses of saving it from decay. Leigh at Arbor Ridge Family Dental

  17. Wicked. Dental work should be all like that. Not a drastic measure or a foreboding event, but a course that should be delivered in a jiff. Teeth is merely an area of concern which must only needs to be delineated and resolved. There really is no need to be that afraid of the dentist, and the alternative of not going could be far worse. Good dental service should get to this point succintly and precisely. So yeah, it shouldn't take so many hours.

  18. When you failed to visit your dentist after a long time, you might feel dreadful coming back. That’s why it’s best to make regular checkup a habit and not just wait until you have a tooth problem. You are actually wasting more money if you don’t keep up with the routine. – Vicatoria @ Chapel Hill, NC Dentistry
