I am always so aware of everything that goes in or near my mouth.

Tomorrow I visit the dentist and I am concerned about the tools, rubber gloves
and materials that he uses.

Should I be?

Any advice.
Thanks.
Rod.

I wouldn't worry about the gloves (usually cornstarch if anything) or tools. If they clean, tell them to use plain unflavored pumice (or take your own toothpaste). If you have to be numbed avoid the topical numbing agent unless you can check it out.
