OUCH


Had my first tooth removal in a chair late yesterday....the poor girl before me had all her wisdom teeth done - would hate to be in her head today!

It all went really well, had twilight sedation (which I can highly recommend) the only problem was waiting while the previous client was worked on (and listening to all the noises and seeing her stagger out afterwards) The surgeon looked worse for wear when he greeted me!

My reason for this post is that a few years back I complained of sensitivity at the dentists, and as I was in between xrays - one wasnt taken. Because I thought I had sensitivity and no other problems I didnt bother going back to the dentist.

Kept getting those pesty reminders, and just kept putting off going (even though the dentist is at my local shopping centre) Procrastination won the day (those who know me know I am the Queen of Procrastination!)

So, peoples, for the sake of the $24 it cost me for the tiny xrays - get them done to avoid this happening to you!

Last night I had a filling for out so far no pain in whats left of the tooth. I know I have to go to the dentist but I hate going a lot but I should do it while I have a health care card.

You're right, ouch! It must have hurt. But they say it hurts only for a month or so, hehe. I believe ice cream is good and lots of it.
