    No....nothing to do with my arse..

    Went to the dentist on Friday, all is good but Im told I need the periodontal (deep) cleaning as I have early signs of Periodontal disease in my gums.
    Apparently I have to have my gums numbed as its quite painful.
    If the disease takes hold your teeth can literally fall out.

    Ive never heard of this before, has anyone had this ?

    Do you get a professional clean every six months?

    Unfortunately therin lies the problem, especially for an old fart. Check up and clean every six months, x rays every other visit. Prevention better than the cure, I've heard the process you speak of is very uncomfortable...good luck

    I alternate dentist/periodontist every three months. He's just like a cabinet maker for teeth.

    It's not at all. Much better than the hygienist at the dentist.
