My Tortureous Tuesday...

You know your a serious blogger when.....

You take pictures of yourself in the dentist chair! LOL!
Not very flattering is it...

So, I went to my dentist appointment...
and ONCE again...had an unpleasant visit...
To be fair to the dentist, I don't think it was his fault...
I was so tense, I think every muscle in my body was stiff..
However, he put the freezing in...
AND I GOT LOCK JAW!
It lasted about half an hour, 
and even then was barely enough for the dentist to get his tools inside my mouth..
Good news though..he said the root of my tooth was fine...
so instead of pulling it, we opted for filling it.
It probably should have had a crown, 
but I couldn't afford it,
He said it would be hot and cold sensitive,
and that I might have to come back and get it evened out
because he couldn't work in my mouth...
However, my tooth doesn't hurt at all
and doesn't seem sensitive..
The only spot that hurts is where he gave me the freezing shot,
and that still hurts two days later!
so NOW...
on to my bottom partials....
I am waiting a couple of weeks though till I can open my mouth
and it doesn't hurt...
again.....

I think if my dentist used one of those dental damns on me it would totally freak me out being at his office too! Hope it all worked out okay

lol.... I would never want a picture of me in the dentist's chair. I probably look white as a sheet.

I dread going to the dentist. I had two molars removed and had to remove the roots too. It was terribly painful.
