decay

so, as it turned out, i had one cavity in the upper left back tooth, and 4 cavities in the upper right tooth! The dentist was surprised as she kept drilling and drilling though more tooth. "These should have shown up on the x-rays, but they did not!" No pain. No nothing. Just my tooth slowing decaying from the inside out. She wants me to come back in 2 months to recheck everything and to examine the small dots on my bottom teeth. she says that normally, since the x-rays didn't show any cavities, that she wouldnt worry, but since the upper rotten teeth were sneaky, perhaps the bottom two would be, as well. yay.

$50.00 deductible. Im heading out to Walgreens to pick up some perscription strength Motrin before the Novocaine wears off. Oh, and she called me a chicken, after my short panic attach during the novocaining. Sigh. drill fine. novocaine no way.

I got my first cavity when I was a freshman in college. It was one of my worst fears!!!! The shot and the drilling. As soon as my Uncle the dentist put the needle in my mouth, I fainted!!! I dreamt I was on the subway going back to school.
