Dental Problems Can Be Daunting


I went to the dentist this morning due to swelling on the palate part. There is a small bump there too. I just walked in early in the morning without an appointment. I was lucky the designated appointment was cancelled. See? Not many people are as early birds as me. 

The usual dentist checked on me. She recommended an X-Ray. Obviously! I anticipated this. The X-Ray showed that there is an infection on the root. The worst part is the root is beneath the metal crown which I did somewhere end of last year. WTH!

Although, the dentist has done the root canal treatment before the crown was placed, apparently, there is some leftover missed out. According to here not all root canal treatment is 100% successful. Aihhhhh! now you said this? She also claimed that my small mouth opening and my jaw problem made her miss out. Aigo! so defensive from the start. Gosh! I am not putting any blaming at all in the first place. I visited with the hope of a solution.

She ends up referring me to the specialist which is somewhere in Damansara. The procedure may cost me around RM2k to RM3k. Depends on what the specialist diagnosis is, after checking and consultation. 

You see, my dental maintenance overall has cost me thousands. If I accumulated it worth one Perodua Viva. No joke! This is real. From implant to a few times root canal treatment and few crowns. I even went for twice a year regular dental check without fail until now.

Personally, I have good dental hygiene care too. I brush my teeth regularly including my tongue. I floss my teeth regularly too. I gargle with Listerine daily. I don't eat sweet or even munch hard things. You see? What gone wrong here? Did I born with a bad denture or what?

I was so happy when I visited the dentist for my regular check-up before CNY which is somewhere end Jan 2022. She even told me everything was OK , since I taking care of my teeth properly. I no need to visit her twice a year. Just come once a year. I did remind her of this conversation just now. She said next time don't want to mention no need to come to see her. Must say come visit her regularly. hahaha...

Haih! At this moment, I have to make a decision.

The first option is - Visit the specialist to get root canal treatment. The procedure is not guaranteed. I need to open my mouth and strained my jaw for a few hours. It can cause my jaw to jam and lead to another problem again. The dentist said the specialist will drill the crown and do the root canal which is really deep. Mine really fine lines and need a microscope to do it. Then spend few thousand on this no guarantee it will lead to another problem. The dentist said she worried about my jaw and mouth opening problem too. I bet couldn't even stay calm for the entire procedure, which will make things even worst.

The second option is - Extract this tooth but has to go surgery also since mine is so deep and hard. 

Aihhhh....its hard to make any decision at this time. I am really confused and sad too. I hate this feeling.

Note: The dentist did suggest visiting Govt clinic if cost is the problem. Gosh! I am well aware of the waiting time and it will stress me really bad, which she agreed with me immediately.

Cosmoderm Luminous A Retinol Review

In general, most people are advised to start using retinol in their mid-20s. Why do we need retinol for our skin? Well, this is because collagen and elastin production starts to slow down. Adding retinol into our skincare routine at age of 25 to 30 is the perfect time to slow down the ageing process. So, what is retinol that people are hyping about? In short, retinol is a topical product containing a vitamin A derivative. Technically speaking a type of retinoid which works to increase collagen production. It helps to treat acne, and blackheads and is also ideal to improve skincare texture such as minimising fine lines, and wrinkles and brightening dull skin. Personally, I am a beginner in adding Retinol into my skincare routine. At the age of 47 years old. I guess, am afraid to start one because I read many side effects if use it wrong.  What is the side effect if you use retinol wrong?  Retinols can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. So, it is advisable to apply this at
