big day today
at one-thirty I will park myself in the dentist chair and when I wake up I will have had six teeth extracted and a new, bigger denture fitted.
I may be too groggy to get back online after that.
then in a couple of months, when I am comfortable with the upper teeth, I will get some lower teeth on another denture.
You take it easy until you are feeling better. That's a lot of surgery.ReplyDelete
Joanne; I was feeling well enough to walk home directly after, there was a lot of pain after the numbness wore off. I spent most of today napping and am much better now.Delete
You are in my thoughts, i do hope all goes just as planned and you recover quickly.ReplyDelete
messymimi; thank you. Everything went as planned except one tooth just did not want to let go, that one took a lot of loosening and pulling. I am well again now.Delete
Take your time. That's a lot of work. But it will feel much better in a while.ReplyDelete
Boud; welcome to drifting. It all feels much better now although I am still on soft foods for today.Delete
As soon as you spend all that money there will be a miracle tooth regrowing process discovered.ReplyDelete
Mike; wouldn't that be a kick in the pants!Delete
Good luck. I hope it goes well. Don't rush back to the blogosphere. We will happily keep the light on for you.ReplyDelete
Elephant's Child; thank you. I am fine now. The dentist prescribed me some heavy duty painkillers and I took a couple to get to sleep last night, but I don't need anymore now. I'm a fast recoverer. I did spend a lot of today sleeping though.Delete
Take your time. We'll be here. You are very brave. I hate going to the dentist!ReplyDelete
Val; this dentist is quite cute and maybe that would help? I don't mind going, it's the payment that I dislike. But I have good insurance thanks to "no-one" and the final cost was under half what I had been expecting.Delete
ohhhh. oh.... Ingo said when he has to go (and I think this will be this week) he´ll set a date for me.ReplyDelete
Our dentist is a nice woman. But... she´s a dentist!!!
Good on you for braving up!!!
I remember when at my home town some idiot-dentist took out one wisdom tooth a week.
Years later in Braunschweig I was told it was not necessary, the dude just wanted to make money.
Hope all goes well for you! Ahhh, teeth! They can hurt so much. Hugs!
Iris; I understand your trepidation, but please do go, even to be sure there is nothing wrong. That idiot dentist should have lost his licence.Delete
You sound like Ingo... Yes, I will go once the February stress is over... hope you did "well"?Delete
Bet that idiot dentist is happily and rich retired now (I think that was when I was only 17 years old).
Hope you are doing alright. Take careReplyDelete
Margaret D; found you in Spam Jail. I am doing fine now.Delete
Dental work of any kind is unpleasant and there is no glossing over it. I hope it went well.ReplyDelete
Andrew; it did go well, apart from one tooth that needed extra encouragement to let go.Delete
it's been about 3 years since I had all my top teeth pulled and fitted for uppers..3 fecking years..still don't like them and love when I dont have to wear them around the apt.everyone said it would get better...not so far.ReplyDelete
yellowdoggranny; I had a single tooth denture at age 18 so I was already used to having something permanently in my mouth and five years ago that got expanded to a three teeth denture, so the one I have now isn't much different and I am already used to it. I still have a couple of my own natural teeth left up there.Delete
I'm glad to read that you have recovered well from your dental procedure. What a shock to the system to have so much work done at one time.ReplyDelete
jabblog; not too much of a shock, although it is Wednesday now and I still have "chipmunk cheeks" and some stiffness when smiling.Delete
Love the 'chipmunk cheeks' :-)Delete
Jabblog; I'm not loving them one bit!Delete
