Last saturday, I had an emergency visit to my dentist. I planned my weekend perfectly. I thought a quick prophylaxis and tooth extraction will be good. Everything turned out to be a visit from hell (nothing against my doctor). This one tooth extraction gave me a hard time. The tooth was too hard to be pulled out. I had hunches that the root must be hooked to my gums, exactly what my dad and my sister had.
If something like this is hereditary, most likely, I have it too. My dentist tried her best to pull it out. I had two rounds of anesthesia and my dentist ended up hammering some bone part of my tooth to make room for movement.
I was sitted on that freakin' dentist chair for 3 hours. My dentist was getting exhausted. I gotta give it to her. My dentist's position wasn't easy. I mean, she's trying to put force to pull the tooth out, at the same , she was also making sure I was comfortable enough to handle it.
In the end, she was able to pull the whole thing out. The tooth was really big. As predicted, the root was curve. I felt like I'm a vampire. I have human blood all over my mouth. By the way, that is, a vampire missing a tooth. LOL!
Anyway, I had to take meds to stop the bleeding and some anti- biotic.
The heaviness and pressure brought about by the extraction stayed with me the whole weekend. But inspite of everything, I enjoyed ice cream from Dairy Queen and a late night show of The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at the Gateway Mall after. (Movie review in a while).
