Dental hygienist

Yesterday, I had an appointment with the dental hygienist.

Now, I am really quite frightened of going to both the dentist and the hygienist despite both being really nice and good at what they do.  In fact, my hygienist, seeing that I was rigid with tension in the chair, suggested that when she does her thing, I listen to some loud music on headphones to distract me.  It isn’t the pain (although clearly I don’t like that), it’s the sound – it reminds me of polystyrene being rubbed against a blackboard.

Anyway, the lovely hygienist was not terribly pleased with me.  She said that I need to spend more time brushing my teeth, avoid drinking diet coke and switch my brand of toothpaste.  Which is a shame as I hate the taste of most toothpastes but I suppose I will have to adjust.  Apparently, my enamel is getting very thin.  Drinking alcohol doesn’t help either.  Ugh.

Anyway, I can totally recommend my dentist.  They are not cheap but they are painless.  Also, they are right next to the Bank of England so you can do some sightseeing afterwards.
