Gonna See a Fella about a Tooth

So… I’m on my way back to plot filling or murder.

According to the Dental Torturer, my tooth and I might be able to share a mouth without need for root canal cruelty. The painful little bastard—the tooth, not the dentist—got a temporary filling last Monday. It continued to hurt like a pro for about 36 hours, but now it only feels sore and sensitive.

I hope the new arrangements work for us. If not, I’m selling the traitor to the Tooth Fairy.

  3. my mouth is a disaster area. suffered trauma to my teeth at 16 resulting in broken and dead teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth. lots of the damage didn't come to the fore til I was an adult. I've lost count of the number of root canals and crowns I have. probably every damn tooth in my mouth by now.

  6. Again, let me say how much I support referring to teeth and limbs that give you trouble as separate characters in your life narrative. But I do hope he lightens up, too

    1. I refuse to claim anything that is fighting against me. Especially when it's attached to me. It just doesn't make any sense.

    2. Oh, you weren't talking about that. *cough* I guess my choices have been reduced to root canal or implant. Who knows...

    3. Lol, indeed! But my dentist actually says that, as he goes in with the power tools.

  8. If it plays up, go get antibiotics straight away, when a tooth needs root canal treatment it basically means the dying nerve (which has been causing the toothache) rots through and a sac of poison develops around the base of the root, one dentist described it as a ticking time bomb... It is possible your dentist was able to just fill if the nerve was not affected at the base... But Magaly if it gets bad or more painful than what it was get it sorted before everything closes for Easter... Hate toothache and yes had a fair share of root canals done on my chalky teeth. Hope your dentist and the tooth fairy have it sorted (with maybe a pain killer or two)

    1. I've read your reply several times... and now I want to write a story titled "The Tooth Apocalypse." My goodness, the painful images... It seems the damn tooth refuses to be saved. I have a few weeks to choose between a root canal and extraction plus an implant. I'm thinking the latter... but not sure yet. *sigh*

  10. I feel your pain. Literally. I have had nothing but problems in the dental department for years. So, sorry to hear that you and your tooth aren't seeing eye to eye at the moment. I always opt for the tooth fairy as well, root canal isn't in my personal dictionary.

    1. Ooooo! I forgot something. Have you heard of oil pulling? My mother had an infection in her jaw from a broken tooth about 3 weeks ago. She swished coconut oil around in her mouth for 5 minutes twice a day. The pain was gone in about 2 1/2 days. I haven't tried that one, but I'm logging it away for future use because I've been close to chopping off my own head due to tooth pain in the past.

    2. Swishing coconut oil, huh? Never heard of it. But it sounds tasty, lol!

      I think I will go with the tooth fairy, but we might have to have an exchange. The dentist said the space the extracted tooth would leave behind might become a problem for the tooth above it. We'll see...

    3. Ooo, yeah, that happened to me. Twice! I had lower molars pulled. One in 2010 and one in 2007. The top ones right above them had to come out too because they started descending due to not having anything below them for push-back. I now have zero 12 yr molars in my face. Just as well, actually. The damage done to them was so extensive, those two were on borrowed time anyway.

    4. I'm glad the dentist is giving me all the information. I'm still undecided, but I don't have much time. Guess time will push me to make a decision soon. By next Thursday...

  11. So glad you're feeling somewhat better. Teeth can be ornery little buggers. I hope and pray you won't need to have a root canal. They are miserable. Peace and healing, woman!

  12. Hope you indeed feel better now, the tooth ache can be unbearable... Glad you can manage saving your tooth.
    This Tooth fairy looks like she can rip off your achy bone at once, only ask her!

    1. The tooth is not throbbing anymore. That's a mild relief. Not sure what they will do yet, but letting the Tooth Fairy rip it off sounds like a plan I can live with, lol!

  13. Oh dear. I bloody hate toothache!

    I hope you feel better soon :)

    1. My hatred of this tooth ache is only surpassed by my disgust to what would happen if I don't do something about it, soon. This is sooo annoying.

      Thanks for the good wishes.

  14. Oh poor Magaly - no chocolate for you this weekend I think. I would offer to help eat it but you've probably got people
    Who live closer who are more than willing to help. Take care of yourself and that tooth!

    1. You see, Francie, you understand why I'm so upset. You know this had to bee a conspiracy! Tooth ache when the world is running around full of chocolate. Not fair. ;-(

    1. I'm glad I wasn't the only one nodding (a lot!) at Shelle's response. Ouch. And yes, ouch again.

      It feels a bit better now, but not even close to normal.

  16. My sympathies! Root canals are awful, so are hurting teeth!
