Mother Knows Best About Dental Care

My Mom used to tell us to take good care of our teeth. I remember when my brothers and I were kids,we often visit the dentist. My Mom makes sure that whenever a tooth needs fixing, the dentist should be able to take a look at it. My Mom don't have to compare dental insurance because there weren't any during that time. Everything was paid for by the company she worked with at that time. So she took advantage of every medical and dental benefits she can get!

I myself have experienced several tooth extraction when I was young. Those were my temporary teeth that we're taken away. We don't believe in tooth fairies here in the Philippines so I didn't keep them! LOL! I was brave enough most of the time whenever a tooth gets extracted at a very young age. I was always excited about the ice cream or halo-halo treat that I'll be getting after the painful extraction. Imagine how simple things can make me happy when I was young. I guess everyone went through that! :D

I'm proud to say I'm not one of those who have false teeth at my age. This is one of the few lessons I learned from my Mom that I'll always be thankful for and I will remember to teach this to my future kids! :)
