the dentist

After a horrid hour and a bit at the dentist...poking, prodding, drilling, picking and pulling, this is what the dentist said to me: You should really try to get cavities in more convenient places.
If the right side of my face hadn't felt like I'd just had a stroke and if I could feel my tongue, I would have been able to tell him that if they weren't inconvenient places, I probably wouldn't have had a cavity there...

What a smart ass! ha!

You know you are much braver than I am , I have some work I am supposed to go back and get done and I am terrified. I guess that whole feeling like I "just had a stroke" just doesnt appeal to me.

My theory is that it's better to do it now while it's just a little cavity rather than waiting until it's so bad that the words "root canal" and "crown" come into play.

I was definitely tense...but I do like my dentist. He's a good guy, which is why I drive all the way to MIDNAPORE to go to the dentist.

Your theory is a wonderful one, one which I didnt listen to when I was saying all the same things inside my own head. lol. Now i get to have all sorts of wonderful things done, INCLUDING a root canal. Yikes!
