An Unwilling Adventure
I had a little Blimp on my little Horizon.
I had to go visit my Dentist.
Having a tooth-filling that fell out three times just bugged the life out of me!
That said, if you leave things be–either you’ll struggle with a much bigger cavity OR you’d loose the tooth all together…
Not that most do not know this, but then the faster you get everything done, the better it’ll be!
I visited the Dentist and he looked at the tooth, Opting to fill the cavity for the time until I was able to pop around for an HOUR session!
Hour session, that meant that it would be pretty intense.
Being as busy at work I had to change the appointment to the next day, but then rocked up to see what the Temporarily Crown was all about.
I was Early and walked into the procedure room.
The week before, when I wanted to get off the Electrical chair, it wasn’t going too great with me.
This time, I wasn’t too sure but was Hopeful that everything would work and I’d have this problem fixed.
If I wanted to have the right Laboratory Crown created, it would start to cost in the region of at least R 2,000-00 ($ 185) or more.
Seeing that our Lovely Rand and the Economy isn’t looking too good!
So, this one was much less R 600-00 ($ 55).
I was pretty keen on doing something to change the problem and see if this temp would give me the time in getting to the Permanent one.
Up until then, I had no idea what they’d do and just how it would work.
At first, the Dentist almost wanted to work on the Incorrect tooth,
Telling me that I’d be wasting my time and money to Crown a good Tooth.
I had to make sure he saw the one I had an Issue with and only after that; did we proceed.
Relaxed in the chair, I suddenly saw that he swabbed the gums.
It must have been Alcohol, which Ironically before I stopped there at 10:30–used some Mouth-Wash to get the Coffee smell out of there…
The main ingredient of this Expensive one would also be alcohol!
It’s % of the volume is very HIGH and it’s the closest I’d get to any Alcohol to my system when I use the Mouthwash; which Burns the life out of my mouth!
That said, the man Proceeded to Inject me.
Either he knows what he’s doing or with the Combination of Mouthwash and the Swab;
I didn’t feel much of the Needle penetrating my gums.
That was Twice that he Emptied an entire Veil into my Gums!
I’ve come to the Conclusion, either he knows how to Inject someone or MOST of the other Dentists used the Swabs and Never hit the mark where they’d Tried to lightly deaden the gums where they’d inject you…
NO idea which one of this would be.
There are a few things I know that most people hate going to the Dentist and feeling the action of the Local Anesthetics doing their work–that feeling is one of them!
Also, the same goes, when your Nerves starts waking up; That Feeling isn’t one that anyone enjoys.
It’s almost as horrible when a Limb wake-up from that Needles and Pins feeling as well!
It did take some time for everything to be Ready,
But when time came, the Dentist and Assistant got busy really fast!
That said, an HOUR didn’t feel LONG enough for what they had to do.
Looking at the Clock to see if another Client wouldn’t pop around in the mean time as well.
The Next thing that I Know a great many people Hate when you go to the Dentist,
That would be the Dreaded Drill!
To say the least, I think that they used up ONE of them and had to use Three different ones in the time I was there to get the work done…
Luckily for me for the Assistant, This Time;
With the Drill more now than before, did the Dentist use water to Cool-Down the Tooth!
Not just that, I could at a point or TWO there smell the Part of the tooth which was still Usable;
That it was getting really HOT–getting the smell of it burning!
Even with the Local Anesthetics, BUT without the water used by the Drill;
Anyone would feel their tooth getting Blistering hot and burn the life out of your Nerve if there was any part of it still alive!
The Dentist had to create a Landing, the foundation for the TEMP Crown to sit on and with the Cement–to “glue” it in place.
I must say, after a LONG while, feeling the water spray in my face and the smell of the Drilling I found that the TEMP Crown wasn’t pulled off the landing as easily.
HENCE, with the Cement and pressure; I doubt that it’d have an Easy time in falling Off or Out or Giving me any kind of trouble in this regard.
One piece of Cautionary Advice though,
When they take a Temp Crown from the Silver Temps which had already been created…
Make as best possibly sure that it’s Flat and that no part of the Temp is standing Higher than the rest, as with mine.
Now, I have the inside bite of the Temp is higher than the outside.
Thus, my teeth are still fighting to see just how they’d be settling in this regard!
Take the time, make sure that it feels correct;
You might be walking this way for a year or so…
The same day was my Bosses Birthday and when Everyone saw me,
The could clearly see the reaction my face had had with the Anesthetics,
BUT even more so, what I sounded like while I spoke to anyone.
So much so, the Boss cracked herself on her Birthday–at the sound of my speaking!
That was worth it at least…
At that time and later through the day, the Nerves woke-up steadily.
That as well didn’t feel that Brilliant, seeing that it’s against the Nature of our bodies.
Although, without it, the Pain you’d endure would be even More against the Nature of your body…
Endure what you have to, for that Short Period of time;
The Pain can reduce for the Course of the day or more–
