Dentist thy name is Satan

Yet another dentist appointment. 2 goals. Put on a permanent crown and extract a precarious wisdom tooth. The former wasn't fun... the latter sucked a big one. As I was laying there with her standing (oh yeah, standing for good leverage) over me, I was thinking... am I really letting someone rip a tooth from my person.

As it turns out, yes I was.

So now I sit with a mouth full of gauze and a dull ache watching some mindless television. I hope this heals soon. If you find it in your heart to throw a prayer my way, I would be ever so grateful.

Don't get a dry socket, don't get a dry socket, don't get a dry socket...I had all four of my wisdom teeth taken out at once and got a dry socket in one. Talk about HORRIBLE! Take it easy, rest up, and you won't have to worry about it again!

bummer.......when I was in high school I had 2 teeth pulled on the sizes of my mouth. The dude used hardware plyers and twisted twice and they were out. I was in shock at how easy teeth come out.

I hate the dentist. I hate everything about the dentist. I hate the smell of the dentist. I hate the dentist's perfect teeth. I hate when the hygentist asks if I "flossed". I hate being made to feel like a child, not an adult, when they lecture me on how to properly brush.

Needless to say, I don't feel your pain, but I hate the dentist, too.

So, where you awake when they pulled your wisdom tooth?? If so...YIKES!!!!

I had all 4 of mine pulled when I was in high school, but they definitely gave me something so that I was asleep during the procedure.

Hope you are feeling back to normal soon.
