My husband and I had our first dental appointment last Thursday, July 25, 2013. I was expecting some shocking news about my teeth because I haven't been to the dentist in a long while. Thankfully, my sister-in-law works as a dental hygienist and she was the one who cleaned my teeth as well as my husband's teeth. I was so embarrassed at first because I don't want her to know how bad the condition of my teeth was but she was very patient and she assured me that she had seen far worse teeth in her time as being a dental hygienist.
I found out that I needed my cavities filled as well as a deep cleaning for my next appointment. The dentist already filled my husband's cavities during our first appointment but he also set up an appointment to receive a deep cleaning in two weeks. I took my first dental appointment in stride and I am happy that I decided to go with my husband because my teeth look way better and much cleaner than before.
We also both learned how to floss correctly and how to brush our teeth in an angle that will reach the farthest corner of our mouths. Also, I am glad about my decision to sign up for dental insurance from my place of work because I found out that my dental insurance covers 80 percent of the dental bill which is pretty amazing.
