Hi Tech Dental

Went to the Endodentist today for surgery.

While in the chair for an hour, I was thinking of my father.

In the days before dental equipment makers acknowledged that the heat from the drilling caused most of the pain and added a waterspray and asperator to the process tooth repair was an ordeal.

Adding a coolant alowed the dentist to use a high speed drill that helped both the dentist and the patient and eliminated the unsightly and unsanitary "spit bowl".

After one of my first trips to the office I asked Dad why the radio played so loud. He assured me that it was so
the waiting patients could not hear the guy in the chair screaming.

On a more serious note Dad told me about his memories of dental care in his boyhood. It was non existant. The only fallback he had for a toothache was topoke a hole in the ticking of his mattress and make a small wad of the cotton filling and place it in the cavity

Indeed, dental care nowadays is getting more innovated and there are new and improved services so that we will have that million dollar smile. Thrice a year, I seek consultation from my dentist in Goose Creek. And because I go there regularly, my teeth are kept clean and healthy. Also, some dentists (Goose Creek area) would suggest me to try their new dental services that I will surely love. Thanks for sharing!
