Hurray for Oral Surgery

I have been having some tooth pain for the past week, so on Tuesday I decided to see a dentist. I don’t necessarily hate dentists, but prefer to stay away from them – especially since I am a smoker. But when there is pain, you gotta get it taken care of. The dentist was helpful, letting me know that I have no less than 5 cavities. One of which is on a wisdom tooth (which is the one that is giving me pain). So lucky me, I got to go to an Oral Surgeon this morning. And I get to have the remaining 3 wisdom teeth, currently residing in my mouth, removed this coming Tuesday (I had one removed years ago when it cracked and exposed a nerve).

To recap: I get to spend a few more days in mild pain, followed by getting put under Tuesday morning for surgery, and finally going back to the dentist to get the remaining cavities filled. Plus, since I have decided to REALLY try to quit smoking, I am going to get my teeth bleached and get my front tooth crowned (I broke my front tooth in 4th or 5th grade by slipping on a wet tile floor and falling on my face).

Merry Christmas everybody – my present to you all will be my pearly-white smile 🙂

  1. Honestly, getting my three impacted wisdom teeth out was one of the best experiences of my life. I was awake on nitrous through the entire thing and it PWN3D!

    I’d do it a million times over again…well, I mean, if I had more wisdom teeth and all.

    I was hizzzigh. At one point during the surgery, the surgeon leaned back and wiped sweat from his brow as he said “this one’s a toughie!” LOL.

    Yay for not smoking! Seriously, none of the cool kids are doing it. I’ve never smoked, but I’ve had my teefs professionally bleached three times because I’m obsessed with it. They come out GLEAMING. GLEAMING, I say!
