When will it end?

So today marks the halfway point of getting my cavities filled. My bottom teeth are all set (assuming all goes well with today’s teeth – I really really don’t want a repeat of last time and I really really don’t want to have to pay for another root canal, but the dentist said today that I shouldn’t worry about that this time, that these were all shallow and on the sides of teeth) and I’ll be moving on to the top next month. Though even when I’m done will all the drilling, I still have the expensive stuff left – 3 crowns and having my wisdom teeth pulled. *sigh* All this dental work really wears me out and stresses me out. I just want it to be done.

Nothing special to report today, really – it seemed to go pretty well. I’m a little sore, but that’s to be expected. I did have the worst novocaine injection ever though. Honestly, it felt like the dentist was dragging the needle over the bone under the gums near my teeth. It hurt. The dental assistant was nice though – she held my hand till it was over. That’s gonna be sore, though, when the novocaine wears off.

Anyway, just wanted to check in with my dental report. I know it’s not terribly exciting, but oh well.

    Actually, I’m doing pretty good now. There’s a little soreness at that one injection site still, but the other spots are totally fine already and it doesn’t seem that I’m having any problems this time with pain or even cold sensitivity in the teeth themselves, so that’s a huge relief.
