Today I went to the dentist. This was for the second time this week, and it was worse than the first time. He put some sort of a plastic varnish over some of my teeth, and I think he might have also drilled a hole into one of my molars. So I sat around for maybe 15 minutes with my mouth wide open. Unpleasant.
Anyway, it might have been my own fault, considering last time I went to the dentist was about 10 years ago. My lame excuse is that my dentist died, but now that I moved, there are more dentists to choose from. I still wish I could have my old dentist back.
I wonder, though, why our teeth have nerves anyway. What for? We don’t really need to feel our food, and I’m sure there must be a better way to ensure our teeth don’t fall out. And why do we only regrow them once? Questions, questions, but no answers.
