Wouldn't that be something if it were true? People who get their cavities taken out suddenly start to think clear? I wish! No, my mom's always had bad teeth. The latest is that she will get 2 bottom teeth removed. The dentist wants to do a root canal but why bother and make her suffer? We had to do sedation so the less the better. We are going to try Benadryl with versed on an IV drip sometime next month. Too much stress.
