We just had our appointment this week for our panoramic x-rays and bitewings, as well as a general check-up at Grace Dental–a nice dentist office for expats and other foreigners. It wasn’t so bad, except for the fact that the dentist who took my x-rays said that potentially I have a zillion teeth that could turn into cavities. She also told Will that he only need to go to the dentist every 12-18 months, while I should go every 6 months.

I brush 2-3 times a day and floss every night besides Friday nights! I’ve also drastically reduced my sugar consumption, when I do eat candy I don’t chew in and I always rinse with water afterwards. I’m quite upset by this news. Quite. Upset.

We’ll see what they have to say when we get our cleanings done next Sunday. Hm!

The only positive part of the experience so far is that both sets of panoramic x-rays and bitewings end up costing 1,700 baht, which is around $40 total. My co-payment alone when I had dental insurance was that much.
