Gonna Get Drilled...And Not In The Good Way

I just thought you should know - I'm a real wuss sometimes. I've got to go to the dentist this afternoon and I don't wanna! I've got to get a cavity filled - or rather, get a cavity filled that had previously been filled by my incompetent old dentist who used a temporary filling instead of a real one.

My dentist is lucky I like her...otherwise I'd be munching on a bag of Oreos all day.

You're not a wuss! :) I don't think there's anyone in the world who jumps for joy when going to the dentist!!

Oh my God! A bag of oreos! Can you imagine showing up at the dentist with that black gunk in-between all your teeth? I'm sure they've seen some scary stuff though...they see too many patients not to have some horror stories. :)

Hehehe I'm going to have to try that Oreo thing next time I go to the dentist. Except I don't like Oreos. I'll have to find a suitable replacement. I think it's only fair the dentist should have to suffer after what they put me through. "Oopsie, I slipped. Don't worry, that bleeding will stop eventually."

To me, getting the needles for freezing is about the worst thing in the world. I always wind up with tears streaming down my face. Im scared of getting the one in the roof of my mouth to the point of not letting them give it to me. I dont care if it makes the filling hurt more when they drill. They can give extra on the sides, but nothing on the roof!

Whoa, bizarro world...I JUST got back from the dentist. I loathe and despise it. But look Ma, no cavities! :-E

I had a root canal last year. Consider yourself lucky it isn't that. UGH! My mouth hurts just thinking about it.
