|"You betcha...and you should be|
Now, I recently had my wisdom teeth removed, which was one of the best things I have EVER done for myself. I had lived with tooth sensitivity for years, thinking it was just that I had sensitive teeth. Nope! It was one of those pieces of vestigial enamel sticking out of my jaw. With the wisdom teeth gone, I have no more sensitivity! Woo hoo!!! Crank out the ice cubes and pass the margaritas! It's fiesta time!
When I went for the consult for my wisdom teeth surgery, the dentist noticed that the 2nd molar next to one of the doomed wisdom teeth had a cavity that probably needed to get taken care of some time in the near future. He couldn't do the day of the wisdom teeth surgery, so he scheduled me for an appointment 2 weeks later.
Here we are, and it's time for me to sacrifice more enamel to the dental gods.

Luckily another dentist fixed it.
This same incompetent dentist also put sealants on my molars to help prevent cavities. The sealants neither "sealed" my teeth nor prevented cavities. Groovy. Enter dentist #3 in my early 20s who filled the tooth with the faulty sealant.

Off I go to what will (hopefully) be my last dentist visit until my regularly scheduled prophylaxis this summer. I'll come home with a fresh filling and a new lease on life! Okay, not really, but I will be about $300 poorer.
