I was incredibly impressed (Bearable Dentistry is awesome). They got me in within an HOUR (which is about 72 hours earlier than I thought they would), checked me out, and found that I had a teensy tiny hole in the margin of The Only Filling I Have Ever Had.* It didn't show on the X-ray, but he found it with the mirror.
They filled it right then and there, so now I can eat cookies again. They also asked if I wanted nitrous oxide, and since it was free and I'd never tried it, I said sure.
Whoa. I think this qualifies as the only time I have ever been truly high, and it was strange. My symptoms included:
1. Feeling extremely witty.
2. Weak feeling in limbs and joints.
3. Fell down once.
4. Reader's Digest suddenly became very hard to comprehend.
I was amused.
Does anyone know how to protect your dental work? I had a chipped tooth once that needed repair, and the repair work fell off earlier this year...and then this filling degrades. I want my dental work to last.
*I always took good care of my teeth and was extremely proud that I'd never had a cavity. And then I got one, when I was 22, in a part of my mouth where the teeth are very tight-fitting. My little overachieving heart was broken.
