Dental Appointment

All psyched up to go to the Dentist this afternoon - just didn't seem possible it could be six months since we last went.

You know how it is - thinking back to my last appointment - that horrible stuff they push into your mouth to get an imprint to make a crown for a tooth - not once - not twice but three times he filled my mouth with stuff that resembled putty

Then told me to bite hard and keep my mouth shut (thats quite a job for me at any time)  He said it would only be for a short time....I would argue with him about that, it seemed more like an hour.

And you know how it is when you want to swallow, and can't... or even worse when you musn't.

Then of course we do not forget that diamond drill - that sounds as if it is trying to attack the brain.

These thoughts flittered thro' my mind as I was cleaning my teeth for the third time to-day...Trying to make them look all white and sparkly, so he would say "Lovely teeth - no nothing to do today" goodbye my dear see you in six months...

Well the dreaded time came , left home at 1.30pm... appt. Lyn for 2 o'clock and me for 2.15pm.

Arrived at the Surgery I was going to wait in the car until Lyn came out as we had the boys with us. and they bark less if there is someone with them.  

Lyn went to the door and it was locked - other people were waiting  we figured out they actually shut for Lunch. So we nipped down the road to the supermarket and did an odd bit of shopping.

When we arrived back at the surgery the door was open - so Lyn went in first - within 5 minutes she came out sheepish grin on her face...Our Appointment is not until the 31st January....omg I have to go through all that again....

You're like my friend for keeping appointments! Twice she's turned up to see Victoria Wood in concert only to find she was a week early!! Poor you having to go through it all again. No wonder it didn't feel like you'd last been six months ago, it was only five!! Jeannette.

OMG now you have to go through that dread again. I was just thinking yesterday I bet my time is coming up soon. I always envy people who can go in a dentist office and sit and calmly read a magazine. Paula

Mixed emotions there I should think...shock and embarrasmnent followed by relief at reprieve followed by horror atthe thought of having to go through all that again.  Who can't tell 6 from 31 or first from last? Hahaha. I turned up a day early at hospital for an ECG....kind nurse did it anyway.

Good Morning Ally
I have done the exact same thing before,But it was with the dr. I felt like crawling under the desk..Then I came mad at myself for being so foolish. But speaking of the dentist,Isnt it crazy how they will be flushing your mouth out with water and talking to you and expecting you to answer knowing your mouth is a mile wide with water in it...One of these days they are gonna get it..lol

Flossing is important.    I had to have 2 crowns replaced because of a cavity in between them.   He only charged me for one but it was still almost $700.   mark
