April 29 - Dentist AND Computer!

Monday, April 29, 2013

Got the upper temporary bridge done as well as extraction of my tooth roots. That was close! There was very little for the dentist to grab hold of and I could hear the pieces breaking off as he tried to get hold of the tooth. I was afraid I would have to go to an oral surgeon but the dentist got it done and I will go back in a couple of weeks for my permenent bridge. Yea!!!

Also, bought a new computer and moditor. I was just so sick of the delay and freezing up all the time...going to the window I clicked on before, etc. Getting some bills caught up and it feels so nice!

Work called me just a few minutes before I headed out the door. They wanted me to go into work, but I told them I was on my way out the door to the dentist and wouldn't be available today. Good thing, too. It was almost five hours before the feeling came back to my mouth and nose! The dentist had to give me two sets of double shots to make sure I was numb enough before working on extracting the tooth roots. Thank God he was able to do so!!

    I am happy to hear that things are sounding good.
    I hope your dental work heals soon. I always get a lot of shots for dental work and without the shots I would be one crazy fool kicking about in the chair.
    I'm glad you were able to get a new computer. They can drive you crazy when they are not working right.

    Sorry for your pain but it will soon subside. I had an agreement with my dentist-no
    shots since it never works for me. Kind of crazy to get two full doses of pain meds
    and it doesn't kick in at all. Enjoy your new computer!

    OUCH! I hate mouth pain and I have lousy teeth, requiring much work from time to time. I hope you don't have any pain now. In your situation, I'd have asked to be knocked out. I'm that much of a coward. emoticon

    Congrats on getting a new computer and monitor. Hope you enjoy them.
