I admit it.
For a good week now I have a tooth --either a 12 year molar or remnant of wisdom tooth -- that has been kicking my backside big time. I have finally resorted to some hefty ibuprofen to keep my day moving along.
I bit the bullet today and cried uncle andcalled some dentists. I have some issues aside from simply wrenching a tooth out, no matter how bad it hurts. My jaw isn't lined up well on that side. Not sure what the cause of that is, just been like that a very long time. It literally pops at will anymore...yawning, sometimes simply chewing.
So, you can imagine how NOT anxious I am to go to a dentist and have this remnant of whatever removed. I can't even imagine the extreme discomfort...no, flat out PAIN...of having my mouth held open, jaw popped out wrong, for the tooth extraction.
That and I called a few dentists and no one does sedation...just novacaine injection. The couple oral surgeons I called who do sedation quoted me about $500.
Need to groom a child to become a dentist with those rates.
I hurt. I'm a baby with pain. I mean, I'm not closed up in my bedroom totally disabled from it or anything but it hurts like nothing else right now and I don't much care for ibuprofen as a food additive. I'm tolerating it to the best I can but iit's making for unhappy days here and it needs dealt with.
It's coming out and that's that. I'm just totally dreading the procedure and the dislocated jawline that will be a part of it.
So if I might, I'll ask for more prayers on a medical bent here.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
