Toothy Fairy

I've had to have a couple of dental work done over the past month and I have to say, it isn't as bad as people say. I had a tooth break back in high school, 4 years ago, and it just got worse and worse. The tooth wall was still there but not much else. It started to hurt a couple months ago and I had a wisdom tooth coming in behind it. My friend Brianna is a dental assistant so I went to her office. It was a fun experience to go and have her there helping with the procedures. She made it so I wasn't at all nervous. People always say that the dentist is scary and they are masochists and all that but I have a completely different view on them. All the doctors and office people I dealt with this month were very sweet and caring. First I got the root canal on the broken tooth, then a week later I got the crown put on it. A week after that I got three cavities filled. Then I had to wait until after the six flags trip to get the wisdom tooth out. I just got it out today and it was the easiest of all the work I have had. The other procedures took on average an hour and a half each. This one was a tenth of that!! I went to work this morning for an hour and a half then Sean came and picked me up (in our pretty new car, it just makes me so happy) and we went to the dentist office. I went to the room and they did the shot and left for awhile for it to take affect. The assistant was really kind and made sure I knew what was going to happen. She said the worst part was the shot and that was already over and she has a feeling it will go fast for me. I'm am very happy to say that it did. I started my playlist and before the first song was even through the intro it was over. The dentist pulled and it just came out. Now I'm just home hanging out while Sean runs some errands. The gauze made me want to gag but other than that not much as happened. Tonight is going to be a lazy, movie night for us. I'm excited! It has been awhile since we have just been home alone not going out and doing things or having people over. This shall be a grand night.


  1. I hate going to the dentist. They always find things wrong. Right now I need a deep clean done bc my gums are so infected. I am not sure why bc I brush my gums too! Soo its like $300 per each side of my mouth and they will do 1/2 my mouth one day and half the next. Sadness. I am not looking forward to it. The appt is Monday but I think I might cancel it..

  2. Oh my goodness, that it insanely expensive! Maybe you should look and see if it is cheaper at another dentist? Good luck!
