HOORAY FOR DENTISTS!….Dental technology sure seems to have improved lately. I just had two fillings replaced and (a) it took about 20 minutes, (b) I didn’t even feel the novocaine (or whatever) going in, (c) the novocaine (or whatever) worked absolutely perfectly and I didn’t feel a thing during the whole procedure, and (d) I had only a very minor numbing left over when it was done. No drooling!
This is excellent. Toothbrush technology, on the other hand, is positively annoying these days. Note to Virginia Postrel: sometimes concern with aesthetic factors can become excessive. I think the toothbrush manufacturers of the world might have crossed that line.
