Someone recently had to go the dentist, not sure if a tooth had to be pulled, but there was aching in the mouth that had to be seen to. They had waited a while before booking an appointment, maybe because they wanted to change dentists, but I'm not sure how easy that is to do (have heard of people queuing to register with an NHS dentist in areas with poor or inadequate provision). And should probably have things checked sooner than later. The other obvious reason for procrastination was the dislike of dentists, which I can understand. I am sort of wary them, and have not been to see my dentist for quite a while. Hopefully keeping my teeth ok, had one tooth removed before (wisdom I think), and a few fillings done. Think I feel a little uncomfortable about someone looking inside my mouth for some reason, so have not had a check up for a bit.
