Meh

Got 3 cavities filled on Tuesday, which was necessary but annoying. I’d never had a cavity until last December. I’ve had 6 filled since December.

It might not be so bad if they hurt, but they don’t. Until they get filled. And then they throb for 3 days.

And. . ..

I’m having a root canal on Monday.

Don’t you wish you were me?

    No, I don’t wish I were you and I don’t miss the dental chair. It seems once I reached a certain age and had acquired eight (8!) crowns of gold and/or porcelain, my dental problems disappeared. For which my bank account is greatly grateful. lol

    I’ve had all my molars filled since I was 13. I’ve never had a root canal (knocking on wood over here!), but I’m sure there will be one in my future. And crowns, when those fillings that I’ve had for 18+ years fail…

    Let’s not talk about how my teeth have been a bother to me for most of my life…between cavities, braces, and things to come…now I’m depressed.

    I really ought to go to the dentist. I haven’t been in ages.

    That doesn’t sound like fun. Getting any major work at the dentist is a bitch for me because I metabolize the anesthesia so quickly. Hope the dentist visits aren’t too bad for you.

    I was you in January. I spent several years neglecting my teeth whilst people poked at my nether regions with all manner of implement and torture device – all to no avail. When that ceased, I looked to my teeth, only to find all my old mercury fillings crumbling away. Which, of course, meant I had to spend most of January at the dentist being poked with all manner of implement and torture device.

    I did, however, manage to be spared the root canal. I’m so, so sorry you were not.

    Get some wine. STAT.

    I have a mouth full of happy little silver fillings. I had my root canal a few weeks ago. My permanent crown comes Tuesday.

    The root canal wasn’t bad. Chin up.

    I hate the dentist. I never used to get cavities and then all of a sudden every time I went I would get a cavitity. I’m scared to go back.

    Um, ow. Good luck, good freezing.

  9. Well, I think I will have to take a “pass” on this as I’ve already had a similar amount of dental work. I hope the pain resolves soon.
