The dentist 🙁
Tomorrow morning at 7:30 (today when you read this) I have a dentist appointment. The annual check-up. But I know I will have to come back and fix an old filling that was about to ”give up” already last year but he decided to wait in order not to torture me until it is absolutely necessary. He knows I am not too happy with the pain. The fact that I know I will have to come back to fix this makes me dread the appointment more than usual. I don’t want to go.
I have this problem that the anesthesia doesn’t work on me. Well, it works in that usual loss of sense of lips, tongue, cheeks and everything for hours afterwards. But it never works against the actual pain of fixing the tooth. That nerve pain. I hate it! Ever since a difficult root filling a long time ago I can’t stand that sharp nerve pain.
Luckily he has a slower drill that hurts less than the fast one. But apparently a lot of people don’t like the slower drill because of the sound it makes. I don’t get that – who cares about the sound as long as it doesn’t hurt!
Why DOES fixing the teeth have to hurt so much?
On a happier note: Check back later at 3 pm for Jen’s and my new photo project. It is not about trees anymore. It’s about light…
