Dentist Visit

Posted by little_c, 06 May 2007 · 136 views

I had my first dentist visit since going gluten-free. It went well. All I had done was a cleaning and I informed the hygienist when I got there that I was dx'd with celiac which meant that I can't tolerate gluten. After she got the puzzled look off her face she checked the ingredients on her supplies. There were a few suspect ones on the mouthwash and no ingredients listed on the floss. After consulting with the dentist it was decided that they wouldn't use floss and would polish my teeth with pure pumice instead of their usual flavored paste. It worked just as well and hardly had any flavor at all, which was fine with me. They made notes in my file, so presumably the next time I go I won't have to go through the speil, I can just sit and get my teeth cleaned as usual.
