Dentists and Blood Pressure
Posted in Random Thoughts
Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:04 pm)

What is it about a dental office that makes your blood pressure soar? I walked in for my biannual checkup and cleaning today and I could totally feel the apprehension and nervousness that I always feel when I walk in to a dentist's office. Everything went great and my teeth have seldom been better, but I still get that feeling every time I go.

    I haven't been to a dentist in about five years... Had a really bad experience back then and now I'm really hesitant to go. But I did take my kids in the other day and the hygienist laid a big guilt trip on me about my teeth. So I guess I need to just chill out and go.

    I was the same way. Finally I broke down and just had to go in to get checked out. Turns out I needed a root canal. Now I go every six months for my regular checkup, I don't want to get another one of those...
