Horror revisited!

The dental chair, the instrument tray with its probes, excavators, drill heads, burs etc were enough to precipitate a panic disorder. Even the enlarged photo of the wharf taken through the wire mesh was disquieting.

I should have relied on my experience and declined to come here.

I was amazed at the fervor of others present in the room.

Finally, the neocortex kicked in. I realized that this was 2035.

This place was just a museum of dentistry as practiced in last century. The recent advances in genomics, biotechnology and nano-materials had made all dental surgery obsolete.

    • Yes, the current procedures are expensive and not require surgical interventions. May be by 2035 they will become cheaper as technology develops and pharma industry develops a conscience.

      Thank you for the interest. 🙂

  1. i’m all for this future, of course, adding in never having to whiten any of our teeth . . . and heck, let’s skip brushing and flossing as well. 🙂

  2. This is so well done – that opening sentence gave me the jitters and I have no problem with the dentist. Let’s hope your visions of the future materialise soon. 🙂

I love arguments
