That is what I feel like I am going to get when I go to the dentist.
Today was that day. Normally at the end of each visit its the same thing. You need to floss more!! I know, I know I need to floss more, but don't lecture me. I normally floss regularly for a good month or so after I leave the dentist. Then I slack off a bit. Then when I get my notice its time for your next appointment, I pick it up again. Sorry to all you regular flossers out there, but I am just telling you like it is. I brush my teeth sometimes three times a day, I just forget to floss.
Anyway the lecture is usually you need to floss, your gums would not bleed during cleanings if you would floss more, yada yada yada. Do you want to know why my gums might bleed during cleanings. Do ya Do ya??? This is way.......
They are poking me and scraping this instrument of torture, this instrument of the devil across the flesh in my mouth. Stabbing people stabbing!!! What happens when you get stabbed??? YOU BLEED!!!!
By the way today, I bled, and I got no lecture on flossing. They did however measure my gums for gum disease. I personally think its a new scare tactic for flossing since they have never done this before. I am pleased to report, I did not have gum disease, or any cavities. I will probably floss for the next month or so and then fall back into my old cycle. Its just the way I am.
