Back from the dentist.

I was too much of a weenie and I kept FLAILING in the chair, so they decided to just do the two fillings I needed in the upper left and then schedule for a full "operation" - come in, put me under, do the other filling, pull wisdom teeth, do the deep gum cleaning (called "dental planing", apparently), and send me home drugged up for the day. I ended up having to get four shots to numb the two teeth enough - after the first two shots in my outer gum, I still felt it when he started drilling, so he gave me another in the outside, and one in the bridge.

Needless to say, I feel like I've been punched in the face but it hasn't started to hurt yet. I can't blink my left eye, and I feel like my left nostril is running terribly, not to mention that I feel like my upper lip is fifty times its normal size.

And I'm freezing.

My favorite part was where I felt like I had something on my lower lip, like a PIECE of something, and it was just my numb upper lip.

Wendel Dental is the chipperest place I think I've ever been.

I shall leave you now with a work quote.

Me: I'm going to lunch now. I ate Raisin Bran so I'm naturally starving already.
Ted: Aw, MAN! Raisin Bran is a TEASE.

I remember getting cold after I had novacaine...but maybe where you are it's just the weather?

I need a cleaning and I know I'll have cavaties. I haven't been to the dentist in over a year now. My teethies hurt sometimes. That's how I know :(

I need benefits. Gimme yours! It took me a long time, but I eventually got used to dental procedures...I'm sure you will too after you start going regularly. And, if you go for a cleaning every six months there are a lot less dental procedures lol

I've gotten a bit better about it, I think that the fact that my dentist company is by far the most chipper place I've ever gone to - everyone is so freaking friendly and happy to work there, it's almost enough to give you cavities ;)

Ooh, maybe that's how they get repeat business? Give you cavities so you have to come back sooner than you would have otherwise!

I'm still on the cleaning every three month schedule until further notice, basically until I get my gum ickness under control.

my teeth are in sorry shape again. The problem is that I can't get an appointment outside of work hours. I made one in like July.....for October. That's the soonest they had. Another had none until MARCH. wtf you know? and I know when I go it'll be you have 23094823 cavaties AND gum issues I'm sure. I might go for extra cleanings by choice. then again if I schedule one in October it'll be 6 months before they have an opening anyway.
