Followers of my blogs will know I have always been reticent to go to the dentist, and until recently I hadn’t been for some twenty years. I remember being very aware of having ‘ghastly’ teeth but not bothering to do anything about it. My attitude was that as a trip to the dentist would likely involve 1. pain and 2., vast expense as I would probably need a new bridge, what was the point, especially as I didn’t expect to still be alive past 60 years of age. As far as I was concerned what I had would last me.
I think a lot of people with a drink problem tend to let themselves physically go as I had, I know my escape from worrying about not properly caring for myself was simply to have more to drink! Many of the people I meet as part of the counselling I do, I can immediately tell have a drink issue, purely from their physical state and appearance.
Now of course, and especially having turned 60, I am set on living at least another 30 years and so my teeth are just one of many aspects that need to be able to cope with my new positive attitude to life.
Nicely cleaned and polished and in tip-top shape as far as is possible without major expense they look considerably different to the set I was showing in the videos last year. Should I redo the videos do you think?
