Gah again

I was flossing this morning and a giant filling fell out. It is one of those fillings that doesn't so much fill a hole as occupy the side of the tooth as well. At least it looks more like filling that rotten tooth.. Anyway, just as well I registered with an NHS dentist about 6 months ago, so I have got an appointment for tomorrow morning. Bizarrely the exact same thing happened to someone at work yesterday (so he is going to his dentist tomorrow too).

There is something fundamentally 'wrong' about teeth, though. There is definitely something not right about a bit of the body which can decay so easily, as though ones toes might suddenly start dropping off.
