Here’s what’s frustrating.
I understand that the world works how it works. That’s to say, really, that the laws of physics and reality work how they work. And, it’s sort of silly to get upset by it, ultimately.
With that said, I was at the regular dentist, and she told me I had 4…that’s right…. FOUR CAVITIES!
You see, apparently they’re creepy little cavities that are creeping between my teeth.
This is frustrating as hell.
Well, every day I brush twice with the Oral B, floss, and rinse with mouthwash. I don’t drink soda. Ever. And, I very rarely eat candies or any junk food. Very rarely. And, never any sweet/sugary drinks. And, the Oral B. And, the flossing. And, the rinsing. And, I’ve been going for regular cleanings and maintenance. And, I HAVE FOUR CAVITIES???!!!!
I don’t know what else I could have done. I understand that life is what it is…but, I’m not going to lie. I’m frustrated about this.
She suggested I start using a Waterpik. So, I’m now using a Waterpik.

My teeth are now starting to hurt. Particularly in the back where there’s the empty space. Great. And, I still can’t figure out which approach to use for the tooth replacement. And, truth is…it doesn’t really matter anyway because I can’t afford to get the tooth put in. The fucking cost of dental care in this country is just…just fucking pisses me off to such a tremendous extent. It amazes me that this is acceptable.
