Da Dentist

Went to the Dentist and, as I half suspected, the nerve in the tooth that I had quite a bit of treatment on last year is calling it a day and dying.

What this means for me is a trip (or two - depending if I want a two hour session or a couple of one hour sessions) to the dentists next week for some root canal work. Oh, plus £400 for the treatment and then another £500 for the cap in a few months time.

C'est la vie.

Semi-sort of good news (for me anyway) is that I seem to be totally over my fear of dentists and even the thought of injections in my mouth aren't worrying me one bit (the bill on the otherhand...ahem).

I hate injections (I guess it's a mild phobia - they even had it listed down when I had an operation to give me a pill as a ore-med to knock me out before injecting me) but I know it's all psychological. I never had a dental injection until last year (I used to just let them drill without any meds when i was a kid and teen) and when they gave me that they gave me something to numb the area first. Didn't feel a thing. As long as they keep doing that I'll be happy (well as happy as you can be at a dentists anyway!).

Anyway, the pain is a lot less today (my nerve is sleeping) and I'll hopefully have it removed in the next few days.

I've this thing where the nerve in my jaw that they aim the injection at is not where it's supposed to be. Queue multiple injections in order to numb the pain. :(
