Today I had my first major appointment with my new dentist. 4 out of 8 teeth were pulled. The other 4 will be pulled in 2 weeks.
I hate dental needles. I can deal with any other type of needle, but I really hate shots in my mouth. I have to say that Dr. S. is just as gentle as he can be. I was so nervous going in I was shaking and feeling a little ill, but he really made it as pleasant as getting teeth pulled can be.
I hate that he's going to be leaving in June. He's moving back up to Michigan when his residency is done and I hate to lose him. He's going to be a great dentist and a lot of people will be lucky to have him do their work.
I can't wait till this is all done and I have a pretty smile again. I love to smile and it's been driving me crazy that I feel uncomfortable every time I open my mouth.
The pain meds are kicking in, so I better go lay down before I fall out of my chair. I haven't eaten anything since yesterday and I have some chocolate raspberry truffle ice cream, but I'm just not hungry yet.
