If you follow me on twitter, you probably know that I’ve been suffering from some pretty severe dental pain since this past saturday.
I really hate going to doctors, of any kind (i haven’t been since I was little), plus we don’t have dental coverage, so I was just going to take some tylenol, brush with some sensodyne, and call it a day.my mouth had other plans though.
Pain got worse and worse, so I finally had to just suck it up and make a dental appointment. They had to do some sort of cold treatment to pinpoint the problem.that was the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life. I about came out of my seat!
The verdict was SEVERE tooth decay. Guess who needs either a root canal or extraction? Right now,we think the better option for us financially is to just have it removed, and get an implant forit later. Luckily it’s one of my back molars, so my smile won’t be affected! (we would definitely do the root canal if it had been a front tooth.)
So, for the next few days until I can get scheduled for the extraction, Vicoprofen is my best friend. And I’ll definitely be making regular trips to the dentist from now on.if I had been going for checkups, this could have been detected long before it became a serious issue.
