|Smile's looking better, though you can tell those three are fake!|
I was seated in a different area of the office, and it was COLD in here! Plus, the hygenist lady had a fan on. I was going to be miserable, I just knew it.
Luckily, she noticed that I was chilly and explained why it was kept so cold in there: Since she had to wear a large facemask (she looked like a welder), it was kept cold so that her breath wouldn't fog up on the inside of the mask. The fan helped with that too. She offered me a blanket, which I gratefully accepted!

|So. Many. Picky things.|
Once used to it, it wasn't 'better' per se, but I was at least able to handle it. I put my earphones in, put my sunglasses on and let her scrape the hell out of my teeth. She wasn't very descriptive in what she was doing, but it didn't take very long (maybe 20 minutes?) After looking it up online, the cleaning includes cleaning calculus, plaque and bacteria, both above and below the gumline, as well as smoothing and shaping tooth root to remove bacteria. Finally, an antibiotic is prescribed, for healing.
Once done, I was free to head off to work. I'll return next week to get my permanent crowns!
