I have serious problems with my teeth. I don't want to get waaaay deep into this subject, the problem is that 2 of my teeth, both on one side of my mouth, are very sensitive to hot and cold. Every time I eat, it starts hurting. Every time I go out into the cold and then come back into the warm house or go into a warm shop or store, it starts hurting. And it's not just a little bit of pain, it's full on, half-of-your-face-gets-numb type of pain. I went to a dentist who has been an immense disappointment and said that he can't do anything about it except for a simple little treatment that didn't help at all BTW. For someone coming from Eastern Europe, I though that doctors in the UK are pretty much the best you can have. Oh how naive of me! I actually can't wait to get back to Hungary, I already have a paradontologist set up by my sister (I know this is not a word, but there's this type of dentist who deals with problems from receding gums, and they're called 'paradontologist' translated freely from Hungarian). I have had this pain since August last year and it's nerve wrecking. As if being fired and gaining weight back wasn't enough...
I stopped eating citrus fruits and apples, because they have a lot of acid. I only eat them in smoothies now because that way I don't chew it and that's much better. I didn't chew on the sensitive side since August, and the other side starts to act up too, I guess from too much chewing, so I try to eat softer foods now.
I can not wait to go back home and fix this, I mean I'm 27, there's no way they can't treat this, there's no way they expect me to live with this for the rest of my life!
