Dental Visit

Just came back from Health Center, USM to have my teeth cleaned. As part of dental care provided by USM (and paid by us students...), we get to have our teeth cleaned twice a year, free tooth pasting, and some other basic dental cares. I just knew about it this semester, meaning I had missed out 2 free teeth washing on my first year. Haiz...

Honestly, I have never really visited a dentist before until now. All my baby teeth came out naturally, so, there's no need for a dentist. There's no cavity or any tooth pain that's need the help of a dentist. The closest contact I had with dentists were those dentists or dental nurses who came to school for basic check up once a year during my primary and secondary school lives and even they kept telling me my teeth were fine.

When the dentist first had a look at my teeth, she said the same thing, " Gigi awak tidak kotor, tiada kerosakan..." (your teeth not dirty, there's no cavity...) or something like this. I thought, of course lah, since I just brushed my teeth. Then, she proceeded with the cleaning. No idea what she did but I think it's (???) scaling (correct me if I'm wrong, dentist). All I know is the sound it emitted when the tool she used along with a suction (I think) when contacted with my teeth is quite geli (no idea how to translate it) and I tasted blood in my mouth when she asked me to spit the water in my mouth. Few more touch up and they're done with my teeth.

Before I went back to my room, she asked me to continue brushing my teeth twice a day and all. Well, I've been doing that for so long already.

kenji: haha, i thought it's advisable to have your teeth checked once every half a year? though i just had mine checked for the first time...

manglish: what you mean, target to reach?

that's part of cleaning. when you have gum disease you keep on bleeding when you brush your teeth, that's the time to see a dentist and clean your teeth. i have some problems but too lazy to seek their help. not bad eii? free dental check up. outside may cost you few cents
