I still have the massive pain on the right side of my mouth. I’ve been popping aspirin and extra strength Tylenol like it’s nobodies business. My mom finally got in contact with my old dentist, and scheduled me an appointment for tomorrow at 2:30pm. I’m not looking forward to it because she mentioned that included in the appointment is teeth cleaning.
Let me tell you how that is the one thing I never looked forward to. Actually, the only part I hate with such passion is the flossing. I do not like flossing my own teeth, let along someone else flossing my teeth. Thinking about it right now, I am already cringing in pain. The last time I was there I received an ear full about how I really need to floss. The dentist then proceeded to pound floss between each tooth as if though she was sawing away for the Lumberjack contest. I probably could’ve donated that blood to a hospital instead of letting it drool down onto the napkin on my chest, or into the spit bowl.
Aside from the god awful cleaning, I’ll be getting a x-rays of my mouth done, to see what the issue is. Since they don’t do any oral surgery there, it’ll just be a referral if it comes down to it. I’m also getting a 20% discount for the services since I don’t have any insurance. The xrays will be $34 and the cleaning is going to be $75. So you do the math on that one! I seriously am scared to find out exactly what’s wrong with the tooth, for the soul fact that I know surgery will not be cheap.
I refuse to be awake during any procedure. Knock me the fuck out so I don’t have to hear you sanding away my teeth, or hammering an ice pick into it.
