I had to practice a little Zen today while visiting the dentist. What I thought was just going to be a routine cleaning and X-rays, turned into a 5 hour ordeal.
Luckily, the office is very modern with all the newest technology. When my young looking dentist asked if I wanted to get my crown today, he wasn't kidding. No molds, just a camera in the mouth.....then a machine makes it while you wait. No temporary caps here.
Lots of X-rays, periodontal cleaning, plus a crown........I put my mind in a Zen state. I was able to zone out and live through this ordeal.
