NaBloPoMo Day 27 - Better Get it out Now
Happy root canal day to you! I'm about to take some nice happy pills so I thought I'd get this post out before I'm loopy. Have I mentioned how much I hate the dentist? When I was a kid my dentist told me that the numbing shot was more painful then actually filling the cavity. So when I was a kid I had every cavity filled without any meds. Yikes! That dentist also told me that the fact that I was missing two bottom front teeth was not a worry. Then I went to college and got my own dentist, and it turns out that the archaic dentist of my youth was a little off in the head. My mouth was a mess. In one two week period I had to go 4 times to the dentist to get about 10 teeth fixed. Then I had to get braces (at 23, how attractive) to fix the problem of my missing teeth. Then I had a nice little surgery (under general) where they grafted bone on to my jaw, screwed a titanium post into the jaw, then fitted me with a fake tooth. Nice, huh? (and side note: as a result of the grafting, every time I donate blood I have to say I've had a 'transplant' of cadaver bone. I have dead people stuff in my mouth, wanna make out?) So needless to say I've got issues with the dentist.
Great, now that I've got myself all worked up and scared, I'm going to go take my anti-anxiety meds. See you in la la land!
