From Owwie to Loopy

Friday, January 18, 2013

Wonderful sweet dentist worked me in at 8:30 this morning, despite the fact that I did not have an appointment. Buttered me up with sweet nothings and kind words, all kinds of compliments about how pretty my teeth were and what good care I took of them. He just had to show me off to his friend across town, oral surgeon. Set me up for a date and off I went to meet him. What an ego builder that he was so eager to see me, that he immediately rearranged his morning schedule so that we could spend quality time together at 10:00.

What a gentlemen! Did not keep me waiting at all but greeted me at the door. Next thing I knew, he was sweeping me off my feet and back to a private room where we could spend some "quality time" together. Seeing as I did not have a driver waiting, he decided we could forego the iv appetizer and go straight to a local. Three shots later, I was Finally feeling no pain. That's when the white gloves came off and the blue gloves went on.

Two attendants restrained my head and shoulders while my new gentleman friend attacked me with a jackhammer and forcibly removed my prized tooth. As soon as HE was satisfied, he dismissively left me there, shocked and wondering what in the world just happened. What nerve! He even stuck me with the bill! Definitely NOT the way to treat a lady. At least he had the decency to leave me a tip (or two) and a gift certificate for after dinner mints from a local pharmacy.

In just a few short hours, I went from unbearable pain, to an mental loopity loop ride, which I understand will last as long as my supply of mints does not run out.

Seriously, if they can make silencers for guns, why on earth haven't they invented some for dental drills.

    The smell of burning teeth from the drill upsets me more than the drill sounds.

    Ouch! That did not sound like fun. But you have a nice dentist. I certainly have never received a gift certificate. emoticon

    I love my dentist. He's a sweet-talker, too, and once didn't mind sharing my attentions with an oral surgeon. But since then, we've been relatively monogamous. Or at least I have, lol.

I hate, hate, hate the sound of the drill. My dentist gives us a CD player and earbuds (and nitrous) to help distract us from that dreadful sound. This is probably why I've stuck with him so long, because he's so considerate.

I hope your supply of mints lasts longer than the pain.

    I have gas for everything the dentist's office does to me including cleanings. The effects leave before I'm out of the chair. Mostly it just makes me relaxed. My mouth is small and holding it open for any length of time is very stressful.

    I can't deal well with dentists either. I have had several crowns done and root canal as well. The worst part for me is the freezing when you can't feel your mouth and bite the side of your cheek. You are a very brave girl. emoticon emoticon

    i can't deal with dentist drills either.

I once had a back molar that needed a crown and it took my dentist 3 shots and still it didn't work. But
On the drive home...the side of my face felt like it was sagging down.

oh well

    ::gulp:: I hate the dentist! Big loud noises and scary equipment! Actually I have never had such a wonderful experience as you. I think I'll keep it that way. Cavities as a kid was enough... back in those days, dentists didn't know about novacaine... nor sealants... if sealants had been invented, I'd never have had a cavity! But I have visited the gum doctor... great way to diet... they put a silly putty bandage on the roof of your mouth that after a few days tastes so foul that it is nauseating to eat. I hope all things heal quickly!
