My Tooth

Today, I went to the dentist. Exciting huh? Well, it is when you haven't been in at least 4 years. Long story short, we didn't have insurance for a long time, and then we couldn't afford to pay out of pocket. So finally we can, cuz we have insurance. Anyways, somewhere in those 4 years, I had a wisdom tooth come in. Not too big of a problem, but recently it started rubbing my cheek the wrong way. So, I bit the bullet and made an appointment.

I was lucky. I had one new cavity and one that needed fixed. I needed a little extra cleaning on the tartar buildup, and the wisdom tooth came out. I have never had a tooth pulled before, but for my first experience, it wasn't so bad. The hard part is not being able to eat much, or drink through a straw, and once the numbing meds wear off....well, it hurts a bit. I'm debating about going to church tomorrow, but I kinda have to.... I am being sustained as the chorister for Relief Society. That means I direct the music for that hour of church. Woo hoo! So we will see. I will probably go unless I am in excruciating pain.

Oh, I took pictures of my tooth (I got to bring it home) but the camera is in the bedroom and Ethan is sleeping, so.... tomorrow you all can see it. It looks nasty....cuz of the roots. Anyways, crazy day. I want to sleep! See you all later!

Poor thing!

My wisdow tooth experience was awful. I got 3 pulled (I only had 3) and Amanda (Burton) worked in the dental office I went to. Awkward situation to say the least. =( The novicaine didn't work on one side so I felt it all.
