It is weird how a filling on your 5th tooth may change your daily sequence.
I have "pulpit", no matter what this means and no matter the fact that the tooth seemed perfectly healthy until the dentist opened it and under the amalgam filling which I have for more than 15 years she saw that the problem was far too serious.
Now I have arsen deeply hidden in the folds of the dental-bone (or whatever the teeth are made of) and I had double anaesthetic because I was too noisy screaming that it hurts.
It is weird that when I went for a check-up two months ago the dentist did not find anything wrong with my mouth. Instead of this he told me that I should eat more apples to keep my gingiva healthy. Healthy my ass, excuse my French.
Tomorrow I have to visit the new dentist again, then once again on Friday and finally if I am still alive, one last time on Saturday. I feel scared and desperate.
As a bonus, one of my wisdom teeth started to grow again.
While browsing on the net for more info I found some curious facts on the dental history:
- There are 250 millions of microorganisms in 1 mg dental coating.
- There are 250 mg dental coating in mouths which are not maintained properly.
- The first tools for dental hygiene date back to the Sumerian civilization (3000 BC).
- During archeological excavations in Mesopotamia were found teeth-cleaners made of gold.
- The Syrians and Babylonians prepared special simmers made of herbs to wash their mouths.
- The Romans used oil sprays or feathers.
- Pier Foshar (1678-1761) recommended tooth brushes made of hog-bristle and powder most often prepared of brayed coals, salt, shells and valves.
- The first tooth-pastes appeared in the beginning of the 20th century.
