104/365: I love the dentist.

Can you tell? I loved my first dental dam picture so much I decided to revisit the theme. That one focused on the fun, whimsical side of the dentist. This one is more about terror.

    Eeeek!

    I have to go back to the dentist; I had a couple of teeth (re)filled last week, and they are still not 100% able to chew on stuff. I am extremely worried that they might need to get redone!

    You are very brave.

    you look terrified!

    dentist shmentist, just tell Rick to yank it out with pliers! End of problem.
  • Betsssssy 8y

    Whiffleboy-- You know you want to try it. Go ahead. Grab yourself a metal clamp for your molar.

    yarnivore-- Oooh, I know-- worrying that you'll have to get it done AGAIN is scary. The dentist asked what kind of (re) filling I wanted and I said "whatever lasts longer." Drills suck.

    Pixie-- Truth in reporting...

    Rich-- I hope I get a few shots of tequila first.

    I had a crown done just last Monday my day off. I'm such a baby at the Dentist that I have gas and the two and half hours just fly by. And in the coming months I have only (FIVE) more crowns to go at $1029.80 each. A funny note when I was writting out my last check down on the bottom I said in the note area [one more clown] I guess I was still a little sleepy zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • Ken J. PRO 7y

    I can't stand the feeling of dams... blocking off your breathing... ugh. No thanks.. fun picture though, how the heck did the dentist feel about you snapping a pic in the middle of the procedure?
  • Tom VanNortwick PRO 6y

    Is it safe? AAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
  • CindyLynn 6y

    OMG! So, that's what those things look like when they are on!!
  • Neah. 6y

  • HOOOOMAN. 6y

  • WestminsterDentist 5y

    Ah, the infamous Dental Dam. So much fun has been made of this weird device. A bit uncomfortable and unwieldy to install but they sure do the trick! Westminster Colorado Dentist.

    This looks scary to me :(. I need to go to the dentist but I am terrified of going. Does anyone know of a good dentist in Langley? I am looking for a place that is very friendly and will calm me.
  • Alisha Fox 2y

    I'd like to take the power of thanking you for that specialized guidance I've constantly enjoyed viewing your blog.

    I am just glad that we have modern trained dentists here in Edmonton. I have seen some of the dentists in other country's, and I never really appreciated our own until then.
  • Zach Thalman 6mo

    I honestly didn't know they used that much of that green material when they isolate teeth. I guess you don't really get to see what is going on in your mouth. I like this picture because it helps you see what you are experiencing. I will have to remember this when I go to the dentist. I wonder if they also used the metal bars on me as well. I will have to pay special attention to that. myvictoriadentist.ca/services/
  • Jamarcus Dantley 6d

    I know that look has been on my face before when I go to the dentist! I don't think I've ever seen it from the dentist's point of view, though! Hopefully it all turned out well! Thanks for sharing. www.randwickcitydental.com.au
