There's a Party in My Mouth
Got the last 3/4 of that cleaning done last night. Judging by the number of times I got poked in the gums, the lower right side was the worst of the four. Anyway, my teeth should be in good shape now, provided I keep up with the scheduled maintenance.
The only downside is that they want me to come in in three months as a kind of progress check. Ostensibly to make sure that there's nothing wrong after the long period of neglect, but if my experience with the orthodontist is any indicator it's just to bitch at me for not keeping my mouth as immaculate as an operating room.
