Went to the Dentist Today

I need Invisalign!!(then i will smile)

So it has been a super long time since I went to the dentist. When you are running behind a toddler, that is the last on your list unfortunately. Now my son is 16 months old and my teeth were getting gross so I went, today, finally.

I will be surprised in Japan for months to come, so I thought I would share a few things of my suprisement(not a word) with you guys.

First, we had to take off our shoes to enter the dentist’s office. This surprised me because it is a public place. Usually you remove your shoes to go into someone’s home, but the dentist’s office?

Also the machine the dentist used to take my x-rays. Perhaps I am late, but the machine was so different. This machine took my x-rays while I was standing. The machine did a 360 scan around my head and the pictures were instantly sent to the monitor above my dental chair. Super Cool!!!

The dentist I went to in NY was still using film and bite wings.LOL

I am sure these machines are super expensive so I am not judging!

My dentist was very good. His hand was light and efficient. After the cleaning I asked him if he could fix the gap that has developed in the front of my teeth and he referred me to a cosmetic dentist. For me it seems like a quick fix, nothing for a “cosmetic dentist”, but o-well. I guess I know what I want for Christmas.

Wait.

We don’t celebrate Christmas.

Ugh!

  1. That X-ray machine sounds awesome! Why don’t you guys celebrate Christmas? Is it due to religion or culture?

    Neither of us are Cristian so we do not celebrate Christmas. Besides that it is just a big waste of money. Few people I know really celebrate christmas the “Christian” way. But growing up, it was the best. My mom always gave us a celeb style Christmas.Good memories.
