Thanks to everyone that played “Guess How Many Cavities Julie Has in Her Mouth After Ten Years of Not Seeing a Dentist.” As I told my dentist I have to keep it light or I may break down into tears over my lack of dental responsibility. He was very nice and did not preach at me about waiting so long to see a dentist. Although I did see him shake his head a couple of times and I might have heard a “tsk.”
Now for the total! I had ten cavities. A couple of them were small and a couple were forming around old fillings that were leaking. But the one between my teeth is threatening a root canal. The dentist said he thinks he can fill it, but he will know more once he goes in for the big kill. Okay, he used some technical terms, but that is what I heard. My mouth will kill.
So the winner is…Susan! She guessed 6 because all of the low numbers were taken. I am really the winner with the guess of 13, but I had the advantage of seeing all the little spots in my mouth if you want to call that an advantage.
And the prize is a $10 gift card to Target! There she can purchase all the dental hygiene products she would like! Congratulations, Susan!
