You can't handle the tooth…or, The Tooth Hurts

I know, I know. I’m overdoing this tooth thing. I’m sorry. With any luck this is the last time I out up a post on the subject. It better be, I’m running out of tooth related titles.

I got round to getting my Root Canal done today, only to find out that it is an ongoing process. Like these toothy posts, there’s more and more. It’s annoying to say the least. Right now I’m so hungry I could eat a TV Presenter, but I can’t chew stuff because of the pain. I’ve resorted to drinking a litre of Orange Juice because for the here and now that seems to be the only way I can convince my body I’m taking care of it. It goes without saying that my bladder will not want to have to deal with this so I’ll likely be going to the loo so often during Happy Hour.

The visit itself wasn’t too eventful. The sucker thingy was in there and I had something to bite down on, but the discomfort was horrible. The sound effects were most disturbing and I was advised to take some painkillers after the treatment. This was all well and good, save perhaps for the painkillers. I do not like swallowing drugs so this did not go well with me. 

Nonetheless, I went and bought some medicine and swallowed it aided only by my saliva. How’s that for macho?!

That done, I’ve been moving aroun, with one thing going through my mind;-

” you will need caps for these two. Crowns actually, and these other ones will need bleach”

Methinks to myself, “took the words right out of my mouth”

    I just want to say I respect Ivan highly and only make fun of his pain because it is amusing to me. Plus, it’s his fault he has bogus teeth.
