There must be something about me. Maybe I’m cursed regarding dental appointments.
I went yesterday. They were rude and embarrassed me and refused to see me even though it was their mistake. So I had to reschedule at a different place for this morning.
3 hours, 3 shots to numb just one side of my mouth, and 3 cavities later… I’m done. Well, done for now. I have to go back tomorrow for some gum work but I’ve at least taken care of the fillings for now.
Luckily I sucked it up after the first failed appointment (that sent me into anxiety overload) and did it before it became a root canal situation. Thank goodness for the small things! It really is important to do these things and not ignore any part of your health and well being. I’m trying these days to have a more holistic view on things and take care of all my body parts and overall health, teeth included.
But right now I’m completely numb on a good portion of my mouth and face hours after my appointment. I’m the numbest I’ve ever been because he gave me multiple shots to make sure I couldn’t feel a thing. That was great but now it makes it impossible for me to eat or drink which is a bummer because I’m super hungry!
Since I’ve got a ton of work/life to catch up on after the dentist appointments took a lot longer than I expected I’ll go now and leave you with the best post dentist video ever.
That kid cracks me up. Kinda reminds me of how I was post wisdom teeth removal.
Have a good day friends!
