...does the person who has put the least effort into cleaning their teeth for the past six months escape with no decay or holes, while those who have been trying very hard to brush and floss end up needing four fillings and potentially two extractions between them? (Hopefully we will get away without needing the extractions...they are baby teeth so the person in question has been told to get wiggling them straight away).
These are rhetorical rather than genuine questions, but life does seem unfair sometimes. Another situation in which I need to say that at least I am going back to work soon. Then we can afford all this dental work.
