Nothing is Scarier Than a Mouth Full of Cavities

By Ali Skahan

With Halloween just around the corner and October being National Dental Hygiene month, there’s no better time to reevaluate your dental needs. With all of the office parties and trick-or-treater’s, your teeth may go through a little more wear and tear than usual this month. Make sure you’re still doing the basics, like brushing at least twice a day and having regular dentist visits. But just in case you can’t resist the candy cravings, make sure you know the signs of cavities and tooth decay so that a mouthful of monsters won’t be part of your costume for years to come!

I am the perfect example of what not to do with your kids or yourself. I was an only child, whole family of alcoholics, spent weekends in bars. Brushing my teeth was never a priority ….. I had my first filling at age 3 or 4 ….. I was given candy constantly to keep me quiet. The result? Lots and lots of fillings, and re-fillings, root canals, crowns, absesses, and broken teeth. Finally at age 71 I’m getting dentures and they’re STILL giving me trouble. Apparently my teeth have demineralized, so when the Oral Surgeon would take a tooth out, he would then have to surgically cut the root fragments out which broke off. This has been a long painful haul …. Tuesday I have what they call a lingual frenectomy. Hopefully, after that is fixed and healed, I can wear dentures. My face is so distorted from no teeth that I don’t even recognize myself. It’s been going on since July.
But …. one good thing did come from it ….. I have 3 adult kids and not one of them has a cavity. I learned, the hard way.
