This was a consult. Dr. Bruns, whom I have seen before, was pleasant. However, every time I see him, he politely berates for not having good home care hygiene of my teeth, which is completely untrue. I floss 2 times EVERY day and brush 3 times EVERY day. Why would he assume that I do not take care of my teeth? He also mentioned that I should use mouthwash (I already do, several times a day), not even asking me if I already use mouthwash/floss/brush. I need to be sedated every time I have dental work done on my right lower jaw, because it can not be numbed, regardless of how many injections they administer. Because I encounter a different dentist almost every time I have dental work done here, I have to explain this to each new dentist. None of them believe me and insist on trying to numb this area, and it always fails. This is extremely frustrating and painful (nerve pain). Why cant this information be passed along/alerted in my records? Dr. Bruns , at this visit, expressed his disbelief also. This is exasperating.
