Hi A! I’m afraid i can’t really tell what the exact problem is because for one, i haven’t personally seen your case. But base from your statement I suggest the most important thing to do is to get a proper dental cleaning, maybe you could try to get an appointment from another dentist this time. You could ask them about the condition of your teeth and the certain procedures that you’ve to go through in order to save your oral cavity. Try to maintain the health of the gums and teeth as well. Keep the area as clean as possible and rinse your mouth with water daily or you may want to consider using mouthwash once to twice a day but not more often than that.

I hope this somehow help.

PS: You can go off anon A and maybe lets talk more about this. (:

Youre a dentist?

Hello A, not yet but pretty soon. Good night. Xo.

{DENTISTRY DIARIES x on being the patient} 

One of the perks in taking up dentistry, you get to save money from expensive dental services. Of course, everyone wants to save money, and that includes me. Knowing that my teeth particularly needs some dental care, I made an appointment with one of my super friends Otay. Since both our patients couldn’t make it that afternoon, I asked her instead to do some oral prophylaxis and tooth restoration procedure on my oral cavity. I volunteered to be her patient, to be exact, in which she gladly agreed. 

I had two Class II caries (tooth #26 & #46), with the other tooth (#46) that contained under-filled temporary restoration.

Now given the experienced, of being the one who needs treatment and being the one who needs to be treated, I’am more motivated to do well. Not only in my clinical requirements, but most especially during my lectures.This is for me to be able to give my patients the best diagnosis and treatment plan possible. I know this won’t be easy and would probably take a long time for me to develop this skill, but there’s nothing excellent in this world that would just pop up in seconds. Thus, I’m willing to work and to wait.

Clinical Requirements Update: On-going complete denture (final impression), two class iii restorations, two scaling and polishing procedure and presented my RPD to Dr. Alba, unfortunately, he told me to find another one since it isn’t an ideal case.

That’s about it, loves. See you on my next post! Stay beautiful and be safe.*winks*

Love you always,

Faith

{Week-ender}

It wasn’t really a productive week because first, i wasn’t able to accomplish my goal for the week which is, to finish my complete denture final impression. Second, I wasn’t able to do op procedures as much as possible. And lastly, I still have the org renewal papers to work with, which has a deadline this 15th. It doesn’t mean tho, that I don’t deserve a fine week-ender, bec to be happy, you’ve to stop being too hard on yourself. Also, I was hoping that maybe, just maybe, this will break my relationship with severe procrastination. 

Anyways, going back with this entry’s title. My week was sort of completed with an unplanned date with E, just like how most of my happy, hectic & not-so-busy days ended. Our dates we’re seldom planned and i kind of like it that way. I texted him this afternoon because my patient can’t make it to our scheduled appointment. We went to my fave cafe called Cafe Eduardo, and of course ordered something fancy. I was thinking of going home early after our snack but then, he was up for a movie date. So I went home to changed clothes, since I was still wearing my uniform and headed to the movie house afterwards. We watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Sixty percent of the entire movie bore me down, butsome scenes startled me & made me scream a little, hihi. I’m not a fan of such movies, but Eubein somehow always made me watched them. In exchange for that, he’ll treat me with some sweets of my liking which is absolutely alright.  

Okay, so I got a pretty sweet week-ender. Don’t forget to post yours too loves, bec I’d love to read them all. 

Much love,

Faith

Top eight favorites for the month of June.

1. Back to school & hello to clinical requirements. The long list of case requirements, is certainly one of the many things I’am totally excited about for the new school year. I wanted to experience and learn all the things that would shape me to be good, in my profession, someday. 

2. Patient Hunting. Finding patients for certain cases (such as an ideal Removable Partial Denture patient) is kind of a tough job, but everything seems easygoing when we do it together. I love these people to bits, they seem to brighten my days with their awesomeness. No pressure at all. 

3. Free Clinic at Ozamis City Jail. My first ever free clinic experience, where I was able to do an exo procedure for the very first time as well. All thanks to my super friends and Dr. Aldred for inviting me, it was a pleasure to work with them.

4. Dinner & KTV date with the gang. It was a fine Friday night, we decided to have dinner together. Without a definite plan with what to do next, we stayed at the restau and talked about everything until we ended up singing our heart out in a KTV bar. Its always good time with these people.

5. Coffee, milk-tea, movie & dinner dates with Eubien. [❤]

6. Grilled squid at H10 is my new fave. Thanks to E for always ordering something that elevates my apatite. Hihi, he knows very well on how to make me happy… & mad, sometimes at the same time.

7. Father’s day celebration. A simple celebration for Papa, tho he wasn’t with us on that special date I’m still glad that I was able to celebrate it with my mom and my sister in our place.

8. Family dates. (This photo isn’t taken in the month of June tho, but this is the only recent & decent photo I could find so I’m making this a representation hihi) I love how my parents are making extra effort for us to be able to spend more time together, esp my Papa (he’s a seafarer).

How about you loves? What was your June like? :)

Much love,

Faith.  

The Handwriting Tag (Part 2)

image

A big thank you to Neeya of Sweet Serenity for this tag! This is my second time to do this and I’m sorry if I have to break some rules. I decided to stick writing everything, instead of illustrating it (the way Neeya wants it to be). All because I’m not gifted with even a single part of some drawing bone. I wish I’am tho.

Moving on, here are Neeya’s list of things that I have to do.

  1. Thing(s) you are collecting
  2. Your asset
  3. Some”thing" you can’t live without.
  4. Favorite food.
  5. pet peeve(s)

Again, thank you Neeya.

Nothing is more satisfying than being able to serve, through the field where your passion lies.

A new free clinic experience happened today at Mahayag Zambuaga Del Sur with Dr. Aldred Lasutaz & ‘ze supper friends. This time around, our main concerned are the children’s teeth. Pediatric Dentistry that is, where we promote dental health awareness, to either the child and the parents. Now, this is quite important, to start educating one’s child about their oral health as early as possible. As this will aid in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay, and early detection is necessary to maintain oral health. Take note of this loves. (:

Unlike my first-ever-free-clinic experience, (in which I wasn’t able to blog about) this is a tad different in so many levels. Well, first of, we were working with scared little kiddies here, which partly made me scared as well. Second, I’ve got to guard my actions in order not to increase their fright. Third, youngster’s teeth are distinct from the adults that I’m accustomed to. (What i mean with distinct here, is the mixed dentition stage, the combination of milk & primary teeth) Lastly, I can see myself in them when I was their age, I can remember how horrified I was when my Grampa brought me to our family dentist. All the anxiety was sort of coming back, that I find it really hard to work on them.

The only thing that keep me going is, the brave smile these bunch of cuties got. They were not even throwing some tantrums or whatever. They’re handling the situation just right. So yeah, we started examining everyone’s teeth, wrote it in their individual charts & separated the exo cases. Then fluoridation followed. Right after 30 minutes, we called those who wanted their non-restorable carious tooth to be extracted. Okay, well this wasn’t an easy part, we have to sweet-talk them and made them understand why it has to be extracted. I’m just thankful no one cried in the process, making  the experience more fulfilling. 

xo,

faith.

Smooth July. Let your days be filled with stoic patients to work onto.

I. The average July breezy air greeted me as I walked my way to school this morning. Being kinda late than our usual 7:30 AM since I didn’t have patient to attend to. Instead, I got some President duties waiting around and deadlines to meet. So, I busied myself with all the necessary stuff on my to-do list, being insensible with the time. Satisfied with all the little details, I texted my friends for our lunch. Then proceeded to school for my 12noon class, Methods of Research. Dr. Aldred was being extra funny today during our Principles of Medicine class, this is something I have to note because I can’t fathom his coolness in teaching. 

II. I couldn’t stop talking about my complete denture case that has just been approved this afternoon, after being rejected twice. Right after being approved, I started my preliminary impression as well. Everything went pretty lightly that I’am basically in my high spirits all the way. I will blog more about this complete denture journey, separately, under my dentistry diaries soon. *winks

III. A heavy dinner with Eubien at Highway10 (again), somehow always ends a hectic & beautiful day.

xo,

faith.

Take time to be still.

{ DENTISTRY DIARIES x On clinic duties }
I have been meaning to blog about all the things that sparkles my ordinary life, but then, 85% of my being is too occupied with school. Particularly, my clinic duties and the cases that I have to finish before the semester ends. Speaking of cases, here’s the list:
—-
Clinical Dentistry 1
Scaling and Polishing - ( 7 )
Resto Dentistry: 
Class I - ( 2 ptx + 1 typo, tooth #14 ) 
Class II - ( 2 ptx + 1 typo, tooth #25 )
Class III - ( 2 )
Class IV & V - ( 1 each )
Exo. ( 5 )
Prosthodontics:
Complete Denture & Removable Partial Denture - ( 1 each )
Jacket Crown (porcelain) - ( 1 ptx + 1 typo, tooth #14 )
Fixed Partial Denture (3-unit bridge) - ( Typo, tooth #34 & #36 )
Root Canal Treatment - ( 1 ) 
—-
In two weeks, I’ve done 1 scaling and polishing, class I & II typodonts, class I patient and presented my RPD case, since it was accepted I also did my preliminary impression just this afternoon. Huzzah, I’am being productive! Consequently, the wasted face. </3 
Anyways, it’s honestly a pretty long and challenging list. I can almost see myself struggling the whole semester, yet, I believe, that there is really nothing you can’t do to chase your dreams. Somehow, I supposed that the universe connived, for me, to be in this course. This is something I can imagine doing my whole life with.*wink* ♥
Stay tuned for more of my Dentistry Diaries entries. Maybe I could make you laugh next time with my DD x series of mishap. Hihi 
See you then!
xo, Faith.

A new top + food isn’t a good combination.

Today, I woke up with a plan of getting my laundry done, yet I found myself in the aisle of a grocery store finding ingredients for my mango float recipe. You see? Spontaneity always got the best of me, and please be noted that I mean that in a reverse way.  Well, there’s still another day for my bursting  clothes to be laundered anyway.  Going back to my messy yet delish piece, this is the first ever mango float that I made, all by myself. And I tell you, it is completely yummier than my mom’s. *ultra mega grin* Oh, my mom is just the best cook in town by the way. Hihi

Kidding aside, I met with my bestiest best friend just this afternoon.  This is quite another form of spontaneosness, just pure self-acting. Before anything else, she gave me a lovely grey floral top and I gave her a chocolate bar in return.

 We did what normal friends do, like feeding each other with our busy lives. In the middle of our chit-chat I realized that we kind of changed a lot –- from our topic, views, fears, level of understanding. Everything seems overwhelming. Then it hit me, we we’re talking about our careers now, neither our crushes nor school projects. This is about the thing that we will follow all throughout our lives and somehow, it scares the crap out of us. However, I guess I can say some things never change, like our love for sundae and french fries.
