Went to the dentist the other day... and NO CAVITIES!!! Turns out my the gum above one of my teeth is a bit loose, so when hot/cold water or air gets up there it stings my nerve. The 'line' I felt on the inside of my tooth ended up being a bit of an uneven meeting of my original tooth and a previous filling. So it was actually just freak coincidence that the tooth with that 'line' was right next to the tooth with a weak gum. Anyways, woo hoo!!!! All I have to do is snack less and take a bit more time when brushing my teeth. No fillings!

That aside, the Japanese dentist didn't let me down. When I sat in the dentist's chair, they set down a paper cup next to me under a little water faucet which filled up the cup. Then they let the chair down, checked my teeth, and put the chair back up so I could rinse. I took a few sips, rinsed my mouth out, and put the cup back down where I got it. Then without anyone pressing anything, it filled the cup back up. I say, "wait a minute... noooooo," pick up the cup again, took a small drink, and set it back down again. Oh yes. It filled it back to the same level again. Seriously Japan? Automatic water dispenser at the dentist? I love this country.

By the way I had them clean my top teeth, and smooth down that 'line' on my tooth. Here I was expecting a 'first visit' fee, a cleaning fee, and maybe something for smoothing down my tooth, but no. $15. Thats all it cost me. So at the end of the day, I found out that I didn't have any cavities, they complimented me on the fact that my teeth were strong, I only need to change a few of my eating habits to heal my gum, and it only cost me $15!

Oh and I couldn't find (nor did I take) pictures of the dentist or that automatic water dispenser, but I'm going back in a couple weeks for a re-check. I'll see if I can't bring my camera with then and take a video of that thing :D
