Two weeks ago I had my six month teeth cleaning. "Theres two small cavaties that have broken the enamal. We were just watching them, but now its time to do a filling."
Sigh!!! I have horrible teeth!! I brush two or three times a day. I floss every day!! And yet, I still manage to have a filling in almost every single one of my teeth!!
He looks at me and asks, "Do we numb you?" My pain tolerance is pretty high, and its cheaper, so I say, "No, not usually." He starts drilling and I get flecks of stuff in my throat, and only two flinches later, he says we are finished here.' Come back in two weeks and we'll fix that chip in the tooth on the other side.
The next few days I have dull ache, I took Tylenol and keep going. I figured I was getting a sinus infection (the pain always starts in my teeth!!)
On Friday, while camping with 60 middle and high school age kids from church, I start to feel more thank an ache, it has now turned into some PAIN!! .
Sunday morning I woke up at 2AM with a serious toothache. Tears actually rolled down my cheeks. Every tooth on the top right side of my jaw was screaming for attention. I was eating Tylenol and Advil like they were M & Ms. I can feel my heart beat in my tooth. Every step I take, sends shocks thru my teeth.
Today I called the 'man with the tools' and they had no opennings for today. They called the drug store with an antibiotic and some pain pills, and I go see them tomorrow at 9AM.
