There I was, in the dentist chair, waiting to hear the results of the examination on my teeth. This was a new dentist for me and I had not been for my annual or semi-annual cleaning in getting close to two years now. Don’t judge me. We’ve all been there. I was experiencing a little anxiety at what I assumed would be the news. Root canal? Cavities all over the place? At one of my last appointments at my previous dentist, they had identified a tooth that possibly needed a crown, so how much worse had that situation gotten? Well, I definitely needed that crown, they said. Very fortunately, the decay had not gotten to the point where I would need a root canal. Just those two words together make me cringe. Being a big fan of the film Marathon Man hasn’t done great things for my outlook on dentistry, I must admit.
