handbag with teeth.
Handbag will win!!!
I went in to get things all fixed up again. I let my dentist know that I have some serious smiling time to make up for and he thought that was a very good idea. I think I really made his day when he got finished. I started doing my happy dance while I was still sitting in the chair! He just sort of stood there and shook his head, rolled his eyes and laughed.
He also made a comment about the health of my gums and asked if I had been doing anything differently in my routine. I mentioned that I had started incorporating oil pulling as part of my routine and he seemed genuinely impressed that my gums were no longer red, swollen, tender or bleeding. They are now pink and healthy and tough. He also mentioned that my teeth seemed whiter than they were the last time - which I also attribute to the oil pulling. No, I don't know why it works. I don't care why it works. I just know that it does work - and I'm going to keep doing it.
Since I am back to "normal" (stop laughing) and smiling again, I feel so much better! The comments by my dentist also encouraged me to stay on an alkaline diet and keep up my daily routine. I love it when I go see my dentist and he notices something and gives me a thumbs-up about it!
Today as I left the dentist's office, he gave me the "go and prosper" sign (from Spock in Star Trek) and said, "Go brush, floss, oil pull and prosper!"
Funny guy - I like him!
This is such a cute skit!
Today is INTERNATIONAL DENTIST'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let your dentist know you appreciate his or her inner geek today!
