Ouch

I just got back from the dentist.  Again.  We’re still correcting the bad work of old dentist here with weekly appointments.  I’d kind of hoped that the dentist was exaggerating a few weeks back when she said she might not be able to fix a bad filling that had been done in my wisdom tooth as there might be a bit of decay.  In that case, she said, she might have to extract it.  I didn’t really think it would come to that though – people go to hospital to get knocked out to have their wisdom teeth out, don’t they?

It turns out she wasn’t exaggerating:  there was a big hole and a rotten root.  It also turns out that you don’t have to go to hospital or be knocked out.  Although I think I would have preferred the latter.

45 minutes after sitting in the chair and watching High School Musical on silent on the tv attached to the ceiling (is it any better with sound?  I have to say, I’d almost have preferred watching animals kill each other with David Attenborough), I emerged with this in my handbag:

tooth

 

Apparently that’s quite a big root.  And I guess it left quite a big hole judging by the bleeding, so I’m off to sit on the sofa and maybe have a snooze.  I need to be all better for tomorrow – it’s a Little Pea and Me day.  Hooray!  :o)

  1. Ouch indeed! Hope the nap helps relieve you from the trauma of being forced-fed High School Musical ;) The biro is a clever prop to judge its size- I can’t help thinking your tooth looks a bit like a cashew nut. Have lots of fun with Little Pea tomorrow! Xx

    Wishing you a speedy recovery. I fear you may get over the trauma of the extraction before you get over high school musical. My year 7 science class forced me to watch it as an end of term Christmas treat, believe me it’s bad, & contains lots of pointless singing ( as an extra treat for me they sung along😢)I slipped off to the prep room for a break in the middle lucky it was dark & they didn’t notice. Lol. Have a lovely day with little p.

talk to me here , if you fancy :o)
