Public service announcement

Certain bodily disorders get better on their own if you ignore them. Dental problems do not. They will only get bigger and uglier and more painful and more expensive. If you think you might have a dental problem, then you do have one, so just bite the bullet and go see the dentist right now. Yes, it'll cost a few hundred bucks, but after you leave it four months it'll cost a few thousand bucks.

Guess what I did this afternoon?

Better than I had feared, but worse than I had hoped. Hey ho. And I got an electric sonic (oooh) toothbrush out of the deal.

Cool toothbrush.

You are completely right. Dental neglect can be deadly.

I went to the dentist yesterday as well! I have absolutely rotten teeth, any little thing will make them hurt and give up the will to live. I actually love to go to the dentist, I know I am doing all that I possibly can to keep them in good shape(though good might be strecthing it...).

Perhaps buying (and using) the toothbrush in the first place might have been cheaper (and less painful). Right, ask the guy with all the crowns and fillings about that.

I too am in the midst of paying for years of neglect. Oh well, better now than later.

"Just do it." Whatever the dentist would charge today is an order of magnitude smaller than what s/he would charge a year from now.

Sis: it's in its case, under my bed. Why do you ask?

I played the title as a musical quiz: "This is a public service announcement - with guitar!"

Sorry, failed that quiz miserably. Who, where, when what is it?

It is from a song called "Know Your Rights" by The Clash on the album "Combat Rock". Your favourite online encyclopedia has a good entry for it. I'm very surprised that you don't know it.

Just tie one end of a piece of string to the tooth, the other to a door handle, problem solved.

Ah, the high-tech approach.

(The comments are making me laugh. And having said it of course they'll stop now.)

(Pssst! Where art thou?)
