Over the last while when I haven't been able to blog much, I had my first experience with non-secretor teeth. My baby teeth were full of cavities, so we got sealants on my adult molars. These are wearing off now, and at my last dental appt I had 4 small cavities. I thought, no big deal, they're superficial, so scheduled all the fillings at once. Didn't realize until I got there that they were on all 4 sides, so I had to get 4 shots and walk out with my entire mouth numbed. The actual appt wasn't bad, less than 45 minutes in the office. Coming out of the numbing was not fun though, and my TMJ lion was reawakened. So for a couple weeks I couldn't eat steak, not fair for an O, but now it's about back to normal.
Part of the problem is that when I had children and became a stay at home mom, my morning routine went out the window, and I often forget to brush my teeth after breakfast. Now that I know I am afterall 100% non-secretor, and not completely invincible, I'm taking more care to brush more often.
More adventures to share soon!
