So what? You are married to a dentist. He can do it for free. And if he's too lazy, he can pay for it. What is that, like a week's salary at the most?

well obviously the dentist he is married to is a shitty dentist so why would he want them to do the dental work, they clearly don't know how to do their job properly.

A. His wife B. X-ray machines? I've been to a few dental offices where they use them to check on teeth/gums. I doubt they take those home.

OP didn't say anything about NOT taking x-rays. Maybe he visited his wife's office to get his teeth checked and x-rays taken?

I am sorry but I don't think dentists just take their tools home OR have tools at home to do ...dentist things. Usually people leave work at work.

I'm studying dentistry... and my impression is that it is very common to take home some instruments. At least a dental probe and a mirror. :-)

if your wife promised your teeth were "perfect" for 3 years and didn't clean your teeth & mouth for you like a proper dentist during that period of time then...YDI.

I once went an entire year without eating sugar and taking proper care of my teeth and I still got a cavity. I think it has to do more with proper nutrition than sugar.

It's not just candy.. It has to do with brushing and flossing well.. I've never had a cavity, and I have a sweet tooth.

It has nothing to do with the sugar, it's the bacteria which feed off of it and quit being such a dumbass while commenting.

Dentists like to get paid; you might want a second opinion.. not from your wife, by the way.

Yeah, I would def get a second opinion. When I got my braces off, with everything they had done to me, one of my teeth had died. So it was slightly greyer than my other teeth. My family dentist told me to wait it out and see if it got any worse (I was engaged at the time and looking to do engagement photos fairly soon after that). I went to another dentist who was very straightforward and understood my concern. She said it wasnt a question of IF it got worse, it was WHEN. When she did my full
