Well it was Dentist day. I was dreading it. Would he treat me today or not. I could feel the anxiety building in the waiting room they were running late. That didnt help.
At last Come in please take a seat he said pointing to the dreaded chair.
How can I help he asked. I have 2 broken teeth that need to go. Lets have a look That HMM! was worying
I need to xray this he said. So more waiting. Ok Xray seems ok he said.
Would yo u be happy to have them removed today. My lips said Oh Yes please but my heart was saying NO NO NO. Just lay back and I can give you the anesthetic. I thought the needle was hanging out my bottom jaw it was painful. As soon as I thought thats it his assistant handed him another one. Down the side of my teeth deeper and deeper. At last thats all done. But NO yet another one more stabbing. OK we can wait a bit he said.
After what seemed ages he lowered the chair. Open for me he said. In came the pliers. I shut my eyes and waited. I could feel the downward pressure and feel him wiggling . I heard it scrape against my jawbone rather than felt it.
Next same procedure on no.2 that one was pretty quick same noise.
Next he started on the third one. I think it was a problem I heard it crunching he was pushing , at one point he held my bottom jaw while he was pushing and twisting more crunching. Clunk he tossed the pliers in his bowl. I thought thats it. But No he reached for a bigger set of pliers. He moved up behind me and started again. He said something to the assistant She had a tube in my mouth and was sucking like mad. Next he was packing loads of packing over my gums. more mutterings. Please bite on that for me. I then had to sit waiting with a mouth full of packing. He changed all that and said Ok all done. Please leave that in . Dont eat or drink anything hot tonight he said. So I thanked him and paid up and walked back to the car. Mavis said god what have the done to you. I mumbled 3 teeth out and it wont stop bleeding. I think its down to my anticoagulants pills. But No more tooth ache. What a coward. Thats my day.
