TwiceToddlers Mommy had a Root Canal

Okay, I have never been a fan of the dentist. In fact, the only thing I fear at the dentist is the
x-ray exams. Placing those things in my mouth creates a total gag fest. Monday I went to this dentist and tried to take some x-rays, and was only able to take one.

Today, I went to my appointment and because the bottom, left side of my mouth was numb, it was easier to take the x-rays. Once the bottom, left side of my mouth was numb, I had two more x-rays taken showing I had two cavities which need to be taken care of soon.

Then, the dentist and the assistant, began drilling into my tooth. The dentist put this new thing over my tooth that keeps my tongue away from the drilling and any bacteria that might get in the way.

After the procedure, the assistant gave me two pain prescriptions, Amoxx and a high dosage of Ibuprofen. The pain has not reared its ugly head, yet, but I am sure it will tonight.

Anyway, I have to go back again, for another procedure and to get all this mercury out of my mouth. Getting dental work, without any insurance, is outrageous. Have you ever paid for dental work without dental insurance? My health care coverage does not cover dental, vision only.

So, it would be great if my readers would read and rate my eHow articles. The more moola I make there, I can more likely than not, help pay for my dental work. I will not tell you how much, but will leave that to your imagination.

God Bless everyone!!

  1. Hi Monk,
    I know what you mean about x-rays in the mouth !!!! I get gaggy as well. Hope you get along fine with the extractions of the mercury in your old fillings. Wish I could afford to have the few I have done as well. Maybe one day !!!!!!!!!!
