Another trip to the dentist, another couple days of grumpy Troy. Today I got my permanent crown on the one tooth (not requiring any freezing), and one wisdom tooth extracted (requiring copious amounts of freezing). I was suppose to get two wisdom teeth extracted, but the one that was chipped a little more than a month ago is impossible extract without a specialist doing it. So I need to set up a meeting with the specialist, and then get all the rest of my wisdom teeth extracted. I figure I might as well get it all done at one time. That way I’ll be put under (hopefully) and will only have the pain after to remember the experience.
So the one tooth that was extracted was a stubborn little bastard. Long roots plus a little curve in one of the roots. Not much fun. And I think the dentist rubbed the left side of my lips raw.
Currently the freezing is still going strong, and I’m waiting for the bleeding to stop. I have Tylenol-3 and some kind of antibiotic. A perscription from the dentist. Once the bleeding stops I will take my first antibiotic.
It looks like it will be a fun filled weekend of me laying around dealing with the pain, or being high on Codine. Yipee!
