Day 14 : Just Shoot Me

Yes...back in the dentist chair. I had SIX crowns done today. Having six done in one sitting is not fun. I spent five and a half straight hours in the dentist chair today.

 

At the time I took this, I just had the 6th one removed. I had a mouthful of guaze to absorb all the blood. My face was numb, but at the same time I felt a really dull pain creeping up on me. One of the teeth they prepped for the crown was very close to needing a root canal. And I could tell. It hurt like a beyotch when they were cutting it. The other five...no pain. But that sixth one...major nerve pain shooting down to the root. Not cool at all.

 

When I got home, the pain started kicking in. Felt like I got punched in the face a few too many times. But two Advil Liquigels and a fruit smoothie later and I was feeling better.
