|The flashy flower that started it all.|
After describing my new oral hygiene regimen to the dental hygienist, we both waited eagerly as she checked the pockets around each tooth. Cheers erupted four or five times as areas that were "4" now measured "3" or less with no bleeding gums. And it took hardly any time at all to remove tartar (less pain for me) since those deposits were smaller and thinner.
So it looks like I'm committed to the program. It took a long while to fully engage my energy on this one. I'm hearing the Beatles in my own version of "Will you still brush me, will you still floss me, when I'm 64?" Oh, Yes, Baby! I'm planning to stay with you forever.
Thank you Dr. Julie Furber and Dr. Elisabeth Kierkegaarde for all your encouragement.
