So this morning I had an appointment with the devil. He was the nicest, friendliest devil I have ever met but - but he must be evil if he can wreak such havoc in my mouth. At age 20 I've managed to almost have my first root canal (he has to finish it tomorrow). I guess that's what I get for skipping the dentist last summer so they never caught this one silly cavity.
(side note: how are all my other teeth healthy
and there is ONE tooth with a cavity
SO BAD that it needs a ROOT CANAL!?!?!?!)
The novacaine lasted for hours (after they started working on my tooth I could still feel it so they had to take everything off and give me a double dosage). Remember when you were little and you'd go to the dentist and they'd tell you not to eat after a filling because your cheek was numb and you might chew it off? I was always so scared of that but I'd like to report that I successfully managed to eat a little food and NOT chew my cheek off :P
But this devil was so nice that he called me this afternoon just to see how I was doing ( maybe its routine - or maybe its because my eyes started watering when he put the needle in my mouth. I may or may not have a very very low pain tolerance).
Favorite part about the dentist today: My daddy picked me up - it was like being 5 again :)
Least favorite part: I'm going back tomorrow so my friend can finish wreaking his havoc.
To avoid the above mentioned unpleasantries - remember if you generally brush your teeth before goign to bed - set up another schedule once you get engaged because you never sleep
