The dreaded day of visting the dentist has arrived.
I have one potential root canal and 7 cavities. I brush and floss, but apparently I don’t have the same superior genes as Kris. My parents teeth are terrible too, so I guess I’m just one of those unlucky ones.
I swear to God, I do take care of my teeth, mouth wash(2x), floss (1x) and brush(2x) daily. Kris doesn’t even do that, he just brushes twice a day. And not even as thoroughly as I do!
I’m down in the dumps, this has got to be one of the worse days of my life.
I’m not even being melodramatic I hate the dentists. I hate the drill and all assorted equipment in there. I think this fear developed from my crazy wisdom tooth extraction from 2 sides of my lower jaw a few years back.
I wish they can just give me a GA and just knock me out.
But with like everything else sucky in life, I just gotta suck it up and it’ll be over.
There are much worse medical conditions in the world to be diagnosed with.
On the bright side, the root canal will probably solve all the composite problems in my left molar.
In Singapore they don’t usually do an X-ray and as such, the problems are much worse at the end. Right now apparently I just have tiny cavities between my teeth in a couple of tooth and that should be relatively painless.
The problem is in the US, they schedule another visit for cavities and what nots, so then you got time to raise money to pay for the dentist and if all else fails, you can sell your first born to pay for dental treatment.
Even with my existing dental insurance, I’m still looking at a cool 1000-2000 US dollars.
23rd May 2013 is the day they will drill into my molar and determine if its really a root canal, but from the X-ray its not cool at all. NOT COOL.
But I will be brave *thumps chest*
Mr Robot was also very nice, he gave me lots of hugs and told me, “Don’t worry I will accompany you on all your dental trips.”
3 more dentist visits, OH JOY!
