Had to go to the

Had to go to the dentist this morning (arrived late – gah). Apparently, I’ve got to close my mouth at night. You see, I tend to sleep with my mouth slightly open. Consequently, the gums at the front of my mouth dry out overnight and this is resulting in inflammation. If the situation doesn’t improve, I may be prescribed a petroleum jelly to smear on my gums each night before bed. Great, that’ll work wonders for my kissability, which is already shockingly low.
I also had my teeth cleaned using an ultrasonic cleaner. Not something I’d recommend – it really was quite uncomfortable, and I seem to have a wisdom tooth on my right side that is directly connected to my hearing. This in spite of the fact that my teeth and gums were smeared with an anaesthetic gel, which is just such weird stuff.
