so, as soon as our dental insurance kicked in, i made an appointment with a local dentist because i had all 4, yes all 4 of my wisdom teeth that needed to be taken out. it got to the point where i couldn't bite down without making a hole in my cheek.
yeah, fun times!
i counted down the days! i couldn't wait. it was like Christmas morning for me.
i think the worst part was the numbing up...i really hate that feeling. that and the sound of the tooth being ripped out.
that. was. creepy.
and this was me, just after getting them pulled, mouth full of cotton.
the cool part was, they let me KEEP MY TEETH!! they are so awesome to look at. i made everyone in the office look at them, like a proud mama with her babies. the bad part? a few weeks after they came out, my one gum was swollen and hurting. when i was trying to flush whatever that was in there that was causing the pain, i saw this fly out...
yep, that would be a piece of a tooth!! a piece of tooth that was stuck in my gum for weeks. yep. just my luck.
but, at least i don't bite holes in my cheeks anymore.
