At the dentist's today, I had a pretty intense "deep root" cleaning. That's where they stick all kinds of instruments between your gums and your teeth, all the way down to the roots, to remove all the junk that's built up over the years that you haven't been going to the dentist. It was pretty bad and there was a lot of blood. I didn't think much of it, but now it's like 12 hours later and my gums are still bleeding a bit. There are some pretty gnarly clots that have formed, so I look like I've been doing some fighting. Hopefully I will clot while I sleep, instead of bleeding to death.
