I hate dentists!
I spent over 2 hours in the dental chair this morning while they drilled and drilled and drilled and drilled. It was supposed to be a 30 minute appointment so they could replace two of my old fillings from childhood with new ones, but as it turns out, one of the fillings had decay around it, so by the time they finished drilling off the soft decay, my tooth was drilled down to the nerve, and a crown was necessary, so I had to spend another hour in the seat while they prepped my tooth for the temporary crown. I still can't chew on the right side of my mouth from a crown they put on in December. They adjusted it, but since I'm still feeling so sensitive, a root canal is probably in order, and the current crown they are working on is probably an inevitable root canal, because they had to drill so close to the nerve. I just want to scream. It feels like literally years of my life have been spent in the dental seat. I went through 2nd-highschool in braces, headgears, retainers, rubber bands, difficult flossing, etc., and countless appointments that I could have spent being a carefree child running through the playgrounds not even knowing what a dentist is, but NO, I spent and continue to spend appointment after appointment in pure torture and suffering. I would like to say it has been worth it, but I don't know that it has!!! And, P.S.--I hate the smell of a dentist office, too! When I was pregnant, it almost made me run for the nearest bathroom to get sick!
P.S.S. My mouth is throbbing in pain from the drilling. This has not been a very fun day!
