    Thirteen Things about Leanne, Thursday, July 13, 2006
    My other Thirteens
    1. I really don’t like dental pain.

    2. I hate the drive to the dentist. I get sweaty palms, heart palpatations, and I’m entirely too nervous.

    3. I’m curious to know what kind of masochist thought palate injections were better than nitrous oxide.

    4. You know you’re getting old when you have open to check spelling, and need to check all three of the “hard” words in #3. Doh.

    5. When the assistant said “do you have any of the bitter taste left in your mouth?” I replied “Nope, just the memories…”

    6. That would have been funnier if you had a nitrous oxide mask on right now.

    7. My biggest fear yesterday was choking on my own tongue.

    8. My second biggest fear was snapping one of the files off in my canals when they left me alone for a half hour to develop films.

    9. Did I mention I had a root canal done yesterday?

    10. My head doesn’t hurt at all today.

    11. Now that I’m not distracted or on pain pills, I can feel the back pain again.

    12. I hate that Dentists charge $770 an hour. Really. Isn’t that a bit pricey for an hourly wage? Okay, overhead. $50. Get real, you’re valuable, but you’re not more important than a physician, mister. Yesterday I needed you, and today, you’re going to take 2 weeks wages from some other poor sap in pain.

    13. One good thing of all of this – he was NICE. He was a good dentist (endo), he explained exactly what was going on, and today? I don’t feel like there’s an axe embedded in the left half of my face. Aaaah. Thank God for Root Canals.

    Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!

    I’d much rather get knocked out then have that shot in my mouth. “Okay, this will sting a little.” What an understatement!

    I am so much in agreement with you regarding Dentists. I hate going. I would rather be digging ditches and filling them in all day long then visit a dentist for a cleaning.

    The thought of a root canal makes me get a cold sweat.

    I know they’re a necessary evil and everything – but I’d love to be able to jab the dentist in the mouth for a change.. And I’ll tell him it’ll just make him a little uncomfortable. Pfft. Yeah.. so does labour.

    Ugh, I need to go to the dentist and am equally thrilled about it.

    I always worry about swallowing the X-ray films. My mouth hurts just reading your post. I hate when they have so many instruments in your mouth. It’s amazing how much they charge, Way to much!
    Thanks for visiting and wishing my son Happy Birthday!
    Have a great Thursday!

    This is one of the best looking blogs I’ve ever viewed. Bravo.
    P.S. I don’t much care for dentists either. I’ve been putting off going an overbite problem that has been bothering me for some time now. :bawling:

    carmen said,

    Oh man, I sympathize. I’m trying to AVOID TWO root canals. The dentist is at least trying to get around it.

    I’ve never had nitrous oxide. I do hate the shots though.

    I hope your tooth is better!

    Owie! I had a root canal and a crown done last year. I don;t have dental insurance…..I hope you feel better in a few days…

    I hate dentist because I always pick the worst ones to go to. I’m sure you’re glad that’s over and done with, huh?

    Thanks for the visit and the hugs. Have a wonderful day. Be Well…

    I hate going to the dentist as well…but I love the fresh, clean filling I have in my mouth afterwards. But then again, my mouth is always sore, so why do I go through all this pain again???

    Thankfully, I’ve not had to have a root canal. Though my last trip to the dentist I was informed I’d need to have a crown to the tune of $500. Eek! Not bad news, though, for not having been to a dentist in over 5 years. Glad to hear you have gotten relief and aren’t in much discomfort now.

    Ewwwwww, root canal!!! I am so sorry hon, that sucks. At least you don’t have any mouth pain today!

    Happy TT!

    :o dentist appointment! can’t live without them…glad the pain is gone, though. Is $770/hour the average rate?? :jawdrop:
    then you should come to Spain to the dentist! :friends: Happy TT!

    The only bad thing about the email alerts: I never get to the site to comment! Great list though. I hate dentists.

    I went to the dentist too, this week, but thankfully, mine was not nearly as traumatic as yours! Thank goodness I haven’t had to have a root canal, ouch. Feel better soon!

    Have a great day, mine is up also…

    I agree with 100%! I hate dentists, nitro rocks, and dentists charge WAY too much!!! Never understood that. Glad you aren’t in dental pain anymore! :yahoo:

    Happy Thursday, my TT is up! :cheerful:

    Alexia said,

    I have had 2 root canals. Totally sucked. I feel your pain. The worse part for me was it felt like the tooth was too big for like 3 hours till the numbing medication went away. Hope you feel better now. :grin:

    I am so sorry about the dentist, but like you said, he was nice! My mom works at the dentist (she is the assistant), so I have never minded going…it helps knowing the right people, ya know?
    My TT is up!

    You poor thing! I know what you mean about dental appointments, though… I had a root canal four years ago and nearly passed out I was so nervous…! I then hallucinated that I saw my dead father and the doctor was so angry at my hysterics I thought he was going to tell me to leave…!

    Should I mention that I was a dental assistant for two years? Or that this particular dentist specifically advertised his practice as being “for sissies”? They were not sympathec at all, which is what made me wig out.

    Mine cost 800 [molar] and I still don’t have a cap. Who wants to go back? Not me! :winking:
