Bad news for me at the dentist's. Because I grind my teeth in my sleep, the enamel on my molars has worn down and I need FIVE fillings. (One is actually a replacement...I wore out the filling!) I also need a root planing because I'm so bad about flossing.
And I need a dental guard for bedtime.
How bad is the root planing? Do I really need the "optional" and *expensive* antibacterial rinse for each quadrant? Will I really need a deep cleaning every three months after that, forever? Any way of reversing this?
How uncomfortable is the dental guard? Is it custom molded? If not, why the heck does it cost so much?
I'm scheduled back for the first cleaning in two weeks.
