Tooth Faery will be happy tonight

Hello all ;0)

I am currently eating and drinking through a straw ;)

The short and long of the story is when I was about 15/16 I went to the dentist they gave me nitrous oxide to do something i am not sure (*reflects*) now what and when i woke I was having hallucinations I was disorientated I felt sick and all in all I really had a bad reaction. So I haven't seen a dentist since, and believe you and me I have at some stages been through some pain killers....

Well until recently, the story goes......

A couple of months ago I was just getting sick of my Teeth there look my crooked smile (to try and hide the gaps) and thus I stepped into a new Dentist that had opened up in the high street *anxious, sweating and shaking* checked they could take me as a new patient and signed in for my first check up in 15/16 years. About 2 weeks later I turn up for my appointment, to which the dentist makes some notes and I tell her I am nervous she proceeds to calm and reassure me...

Its all over she tells me I will come back in a week or so for two fillings and that I need some extractions ;o

Well I go back for the filling, two or three injections and some cleaning, polishing, drilling, digging, scraping and tapping and she tells me I she will refer to the hospital for the extractions as it might be better if I go there to get them done?? The Jaw x-ray machine wasn't working so can I come back sure np ......

I get my x-ray done its sent to the Hospital and eventually I get an appointment, for which I travel 11 miles I wait 45 minutes for my appointment I get in to see this dental consultant and he asks me why I'm there???

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[Players – M = Me D = Asshole dentist consultant

D - "why has your dentist sent you here?"

M - "because I had a bad reaction to gas some time ago and she thought it might be better if i had my extractions done in hospital"

D - "no you didn't"

M - "sorry !!!"

(*P&C's awake now thinkin how deep can I bury this fools face into his desk and use his ears to flick paperclips across the room in a grotesque game of tiddlywinks*)

D - "No you didn't have a reaction to the gas you just had a bad day, I'll do the extractions but it wont be until after Christmas maybe, and ill do them under local as that's all that's needed"

M – " O.K. I'm done here goodbye"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I gets back to my home town I walks into my Dentist, proceed to relay the above drama and ask if I can have the extractions done there as if he is only doing them under local surely I can get them done at my dentist and besides which he was a GIT

Today's appointment was thus made I walked in at 12:10 pm with four rotten teeth and out 40 minutes later with a gaping hole in my gums a mouth full of gauze and padding a definite bleeding, sickness, unsteadiness and waves of relief. To be noted, no pain, no discomfort, no hallucinations and my dentist was really comforting.

So I'm back on Wednesday for four more....

Hello, Michele sent me to say that I am glad things went better than expected at the dentist! But, don't you just love people who want to tell you you didn't experience what you experienced.

Have a wonderful week-end...
