About a month back, I made a long delayed visit to the dentist here. The first procedure done was a cleaning. It's quite different here. It seems a lot more thorough, and as a result, a whole lot "bloodier" and a bit more painful. In the Philippines, most of the cleaning seems to be with that machine. Here it's a lot more with that sharp tool thing (pick?).

Then a couple of days ago, I had my 2 remaining wisdom teeth removed. I originally had 4 wisdom teeth, all underneath the gums. the top ones had a normal downward growth. The bottom ones were weirder, growing sideways towards the other teeth. I had one side done in the Philippines. Those weren't very fond memories. Let's just say I had it done around 2003/2004 and waited this long to have the other side done. So I wasn't looking forward to the procedure. Surprisingly, aside from the anesthesia injection, I didn't feel a thing. I wonder what they did differently? If only it was this painless in the first place, I would have had this done a long time ago. I guess it being a lot more expensive here is a factor. And Finding Nemo was also playing at the same time. Oh well, it's over now. Just have to get through the swelling. We can move on to the next Dental problem. Braces aren't covered in our current dental plan though. We'll deal with it when we clear other priorities. Crap, I'm going to be one of the oldest people with braces. Oh who cares, I'm married, no need to be cool :)
