Here's a grinder!

So in the last week and a half I have had the pleasure, nay, the priviledge, of going to the dentist not once, not twice, but thrice. I am thrilled because I don't have to go in for another two weeks. Hooray for me! I was even lucky enough to get a denist who just graduated from dental school... in may! Double hooray! I 've got lots of crap in my mouth. That is not what I meant to say!!! I meant I have to get a lot of crap done in my mouth!! I don't have crap in my mouth(or in my crack). I started out with pain which is why I went in. I came out with pain because they practically drilled down to the root of my tooth which was a little tramatic for toothy. When that pain subsided I had new pain due to millions of canker sores in the back of my mouth, under my tongue which caused me to believe that I might have some sort of infection or perhaps strep. That was fun. I thought i should get it checked out because I coudn't actually see the canker sores. that tongue is a buggered to see around. I drove an hour and fifteen minutes into Abilene to get checked out and since I took the time to drive in they thought it wise to fill some more cavities for me. No sense in wasting all that gas for nothing! So thoughtful! Left with a fat lip and a fat filling. More discomfort. Went back two days later to get a crown. Those are awesome! They numb you up again and file down your tooth, jam things into your gums, which still causes some discomfort, put goo in your mouth and you leave with some temporary thing they'll rip off in two weeks. I'm so excited. And I just can't hide it. I'm about to loose control and I think I like it! At least this time I came home with some codene!! Definately lucky for me! Now we're about to take off on a trip to see Ben's family and if this temp crown happens to come off it has to be put back on within 12 hours! I'll let you know!

Did you at least get a lolipop?


I had a temp crown once...it kept coming off and I just kept putting it back on!

Ben said...

Dody, that is actually your front tooth. Stop trying to sneak things by us...we know way too much about you!

yowsas jen. that sounds wretched. i havent been to the dentist in a year or 2 and it makes me nervous. but we just dont have dental ins. so who has the cash to go through all that crap?! your little story isnt making me want to go either...good luck on not losing your filling thing. remember when jess got her wisdom teeth out and got dry rot...or dry socket, and so they packed the hole with gauze soacked in medication and then a few months later she couldnt figure out why she had nasty breath and her mouth hurt...and so she went to the dentist and they found the old ROTTEN packing still in the hole??!! she forgot to go get it taken out!!

Jen said...

Yah, that was sick! I get to have all my wisdom teeth taken out, too. One of them is rotting away so hopefully my breath isn't rotten!
I've got a doner for the mouth work... That really is lucky... If you like drills and things!

Rizzle said...

Thats funny ben 'cause I thought the same thing about the dodesters.

Umm, yeah, I don't think I ever want to go to the dentist again. Your story makes me want to throw up in my toilet.

Jess said...

It was only rottign for like 2 weeks! Anyway, when Ryan does eventually go to the dentist it might be real bad. He hasn't gone in 7 years!! Scary for him.

I had no idea it was so bad. I have to say you are handeling it like a champ. You looked great. I can't believe Ben made you do such heavy llifting and hauling in the middle of such an ordeal.

tara said...

actualy, now i remember, jess left that crap in her mouth for more like 6 to 7 months...pretty close to a year....

Ben and Ryan how thoughtfull of you to remember! But I am sorry to tell you that it isn't my front front tooth. It was like a couple of teethes away from the most famous one :))

You guys should have inherited your FATHER'S teeth and not your MOTHERS!


Dentist: "Yeah, Brenda, we're going to send you to a specialist who will drill many, many holes in your head, causing excrutiating pain over the next several years, after which we will yank out ALL that fake enamel and put in dentures that will never fit properly, causing ulecerous, oozing sores in your mouth. And don't forget to floss!"
Brenda: "I won't! I floss every time I inhale and brush with expensive toothpaste and a custom toothbrush! 'See you for next week's drillage!"

Dentist: "Yeah, everything looks terrific, Kevin! 'See you in a couple years! Don't forget to brush and floss!"
Kevin: "Why? Is my hair mussed? And floss? What's floss?"

Jen said...

tara said...
