Practical Orthodonty

Filed under: interfaces,lunacy — mhoye @ 8:08 pm

My dentist expressed some concern today that when he pokes my gums with a piece of sharp metal, they’re prone to bleeding.

My observation that almost every part of me has that quality was not well-received. He proposed some treatment for it, but when I told him I’d pay quite a bit extra to have him take whatever that is and dip my entire body in it that part of the conversation didn’t go all that swimmingly either. I said he could hold me by the heel, I know how this works, but no.

Anyway, long story short, apparently dentists have no sense of humour and flossing your entire body won’t make you invulnerable.

Now you know.

  1. I feel like dental technology is way behind in that they don’t yet have a way to replace all the stupid fragile bits in my mouth with some impermeable material that doesn’t require so much maintenance just to not bleed or rot.
