I was at the dentist last week and my dentist and hygienist had a fight right in front of me! Hygienist was giving me some blah blah lecture about my RECEDING GUMS, and I was resisting the urge to tell her to shut up because the whole topic is just disgusting, and in a better world dental cleaning would be done in complete silence. Honestly, has any adult ever been genuinely moved by admonishments on flossing? No. Anyway, she was really getting into it, telling me that my gums were so drastically RECEDED that I might need a TISSUE GRAFT, and now I am just about ready to vomit and/or run away. Then she says she will consult with the dentist about this tissue-graft affair.
