So on Thursday after work I went to get my root canal redone. I wasn't looking forward to it and rightly so as it flipping well hurt. However I did live to tell the tale as they say and I go back again on June 14th to get the temporary filling removed and the permanent one put in.
Now a bit of a funny story. I am a gagger when it comes to having x-rays done at the dentist. The girls know to use the children's crocodile clip when inserting the x-ray film into my mouth to help me not to gag. For some reason though when the dentist was done he wanted an x-ray and decided to do it himself. Before I could say anything he shoved this big thing with the x-ray film in my mouth. I of course major gagged and could even feel the bile coming up my throat before he yanked it out.
He then decided to get his assistant to do it while he left the room to see another patient. She of course used the correct children's instrument and I didn't gag. We were actually laughing about it, as she knew right away what I would do, and as I said I knew also it wasn't going to end pleasantly if he did that!!! I bet he never tries to take an x-ray from me again!!!
I also now have the have the "raincoat" over my teeth when they do any work as that way I keep my tongue out of the way and I can breath and swallow properly. I so hope this works this time, but I don't feel overly confident about it all...............
