Dental Cleaning Turns Into 2 Hour Appointment

I went for a quick dental cleaning today, but it turned into a 2 hour appointment. I ended up needing an old filling replaced. I could feel it as soon as the dentist touched it. It felt like is was cracking and that's what it was. With openings like that, I run the chance of more decay, so I decided to get it taken care of while I was there. I was told the actual work would only take 10 minutes. The preparation took a lot longer though. And the taste! It was as if I had everything from nail polish remover to spoiled milk in my mouth.

Vaseline Clinical Therapy Lotion Review

Ladies Only

I have a question that is kind of embarrassing, but it'll be fun in the long run. This is a bit of a problem for me so if you'd be kind enough to comment here it would help me out. When you take a shower and need to shave your legs how do you do it? Do you stand up and put your legs against the shower stall? Do you use a shower stool? Do you sit on the shower floor? I can't sit on the floor, or put my leg up against the wall. If I did I wouldn't be able to get up from the floor or I'd fall. We don't have a seat in our shower so I'm basically shaving my legs out of the shower. With my dry … [Read more...]
