Life is Better with Clean Teeth

Ahhh, the feeling of super clean teeth free from barnacle build-up. That’s how I feel this week after Monday’s dental appointment. 

By the time my six-month cleaning comes around, tartar takes over my front lower teeth, driving me nuts. I am religious about brushing three times a day, but I floss only semi-regularly. Needless to say, my dental hygienist always finds plenty to chisel away.

I can’t help but relate my little teeth-cleaning saga to emotional health. I think it’s just good practice to regularly check in with trusted others to prevent internal buildup of disheartening stuff that, if left unattended, could later require a lot of chiseling. 

Here’s to clean teeth and happy smiles!
