Full Mouth Debridement -- do not fear.

 Full Mouth Debridement -- do not fear.

I'm 36 hours out from an FMD, and not at all upset about the procedure.  My
brand new -to me-RDH was  fantastic and  I am totally amazed at how well it
went and how little I stressed.   I have GAD, so  I can go 'over the edge"
very easily.

I was pretty sore last evening,  but slept well  after 2 Ibuprofen.

I have been diligent with my flossing and brushing, post procedure, have
changed the Oral-B  rotary head and batteries.  I was e{*filter*}d this morning
to have  NO bleeding  with floss and brush.   I found it a huge wonder, so
soon after the  FMD,  to have such a positive result.

I really want a good outcome from this procedure. I so don't want to go into
Perio surgery.

I'm still having some   overall  gum discomfort on chewing and a sense of
"vibration"  ( NOT PAIN)  in the lower front incisors.

 This is where there  was a  bucketload of tartar to be removed and the RDH
took several  ( repeated) passes with both  hand scalers and the ultrasonic
on all the tooth surfaces.   I had some  points where I had to lift a hand
and signal  " ouch", but with brief breaks and attention turned elsewhere,
the RDH completed the procedure to her satisfaction.

I  presented to her as an extreme  dental phobe and she was truly concerned
and caring during her work.   She told me up front that  she had  an
analgesic gel she  could use and she wouldn't hesitate to use it if I needed
it.

 I didn't need it.

If I had exquisite sensitivity in one area , she would go on to another area
where I didn't have the sensitivity, she'd return to the sensitive area
until I signalled < enough> , she would retreat  and then revisit, and
eventually she felt  WE had reached a good outcome at all the points of
greatest need.  That she included ME in the process, ABSENT  THE NEED OF
{*filter*},  was a huge success  for me.

She constantly kept me informed, aware and active in my treatment, holding
the suction wand  and being her third hand.

I'm considering this  "buzz" from my mouth "happy talk".

I'm considering nominating my RDH <best in practice>, she has  SO reduced
the fear factor  about starting treatment.

 She said,   I'm the first line of treatment here,  and when I work in your
mouth,  I'm  working in MY mouth.  You can expect  EVERY PROVIDER IN THIS
PRACTICE to respect that concept.

I'm feeling very fortunate.

What is GAD? I have heard of Ye Gads but never GAD.

Lucky you to not know about  Generalized  Anxiety Disorder.   Many of us
never seek the dental help we  need.   Finding a practice where we are
understood and  cared for is truly   a Big Deal to those of who have the
need.
