Question about dental practice (thing they did)
I am currently 19 and went to the dentist today for a regular check up. However, I didn't brush before going. Also, the "nurse" that preps me before hand was different than usual (they had a change up in who works there).
Anyways, the "nurse", when prepping me, took her metal scrapper (hooked needle thing) and went between each of my teeth and scrapped in between everyone of them. Now, this seems like bad practice to me, but I'm not a dental major, so I don't know. I was about to say something, but figured she must know what she is doing.
Now, I get this strange feeling like she made the gapes between my teeth bigger and scrapped off a little of my teeth. I never had that done before. Usually all they do is use flossing for that stuff.
Is what she did ok practice? It really concerns me, but then again I could just be worrying about nothing. Thanks for any assistance.
