I had to make a work-in appointment with the dentist today. From my description of the pain they sent me straight to the endodontic dentist. I have been in pain for a few days and really did not want to suffer over the weekend. Turns out there is an abscess under my crown and quite probably another in the tooth beside it. It goes without saying, I’m a hurting unit. But he gave me a pain medication and antibotics and will be doing surgery next week, so I should be good as new in no time. I get so frustrated because for some reason, even though I do exactly what the dentist tells me when it comes to dental care, I still have a lot of teeth issues. I have become a regular visitor at my dentist. I lecture my kids about their dental habits because I don’t want them to go through anything like I have been through. Sad part is, a lot of dental issues are just our genetic make-up and can’t really be helped.
My daughter has been babying me all day and I presume she will continue her mother hen role until I’m better. It really is nice when the kids are old enough to help when you are under the weather.
