Oh my teeth

I went to the dentist for my regular cleaning. Everything was going fine until the dentist came in. The hygienist does the cleaning and most times, the dentist comes in afterward to check everything.

Well she found two cavities and also told me that I have gingivitis. Who knew pregnancy could be so bad for your teeth. Who knew throwing up and mid-night snacks were so bad for you.


The good news is that the gingivitis will get better with more attention by me and will likely clear up completely once this baby is out. The bad news is that I have to get the cavities filled.

Be nice to your teeth!


  1. I get gingivitis when I'm pregnant too. Good luck with the fillings!

  2. Yeah, after my 4 (4!) dentist appointments in September to catch up on 2 years of no profesh cleanings, 7 cavities and and a floppy frozen face, I set my outlook to ding every day at 1:30 to remind me to bush and floss. I have toothpaste, fancy floss and a toothbrush in a little kit at work and I'm kicking it up a notch to try and build a habit. Sorry about the cavities, I feel your pain (or floppy face, you know what I mean).

  3. I have been using my boss's tootbrush at work on accident isn't that gross for us both. I just figured it out today. I have small children in daycare so I am always sick poor guy.
