Me and The Dentist

I visited the dentist a couple of weeks ago for a standard cleaning. Every single time I go (regardless of the dentist's office) they always tell me what nice teeth I have. Yet, I have this one bad tooth. It's been filled and re-filled and it looks like it's that time to be re-filled again. The dentist looked at it and said she believes it's quite an urgent matter otherwise I may need a root canal. WHAT?! Those were the magic words right there. I hate having work done in my mouth. The thought of pain in my head is scary. Well, I made an appt for Dec. 7 even though my mouth felt fine. Yesterday (YES-TER-DAY) my mouth started to hurt. It still does today. I was laying in bed fretting about it last night imagining all the worlds of hurt she could put me through. Oooh, man! Of me and the dentist, never should the twain meet!

Hi Shelly -- I just want to let you know that I have had two root canals and neither of them hurt a bit. I would do it again if I had to. I felt nothing but the dentist doing the procedure on my gums and believe me, it did not hurt. Just consult the LORD about this and go get your root canal. Let me know how it comes out.

Shelly, I just visited a dentist, and I was so glad I did. Don't even worry, with happy gas and narcotics, you won't even a feel a thing.

I have a tooth to refil myself, I should go do it before the year ends though. Hope the pain doesn't get any worse.

Did you do the unthinkable and think up the hurt and pain? Stop dwelling. If you "think a thing" surely it will come to pass. Yeah who am I to talk.
