I took the Vicodin. Apparently, Advil is NOT enough to keep the pain in check.
I feel a bit funky…
The End Result of the Terror that Flaps by Night*
2 old crowns removed
1 tooth half sawn down and plastered over — too far gone to get new crown on. Apparently the cavity reached into the bone. :<
Other tooth, root canal'd and a temp crown put on.
Then they ran out of time, so the rest of the planned stuff didn't happen.

Yeeikes. That’s a lotta work going on all at once within the same mouth. I have a crown coming up in feb (my third… ugh!) but they’ve gone smoothly so far (*knocks on wood*)
I live in terror of despise dentists. So, I am trying to get all the work that I need done in lot jobs while knocked out.
*knocks on wood for you, too*
😦 I get my first crown put on tomorrow. The root canal part wasn’t as gawd-awful-hideous as I’d been led to believe it would be. Not fun, but sort of interesting.
Who is your dentist? I don’t think mine does sedation dentistry, and I think M would take the route you’re going over multiple non-sedated visits (what I’m doing).
Doctor Larry Lindsay of Balcones Dental. I like him a lot. He is very gentle and up front. And his office staff are superb.
I will think happy thoughts for you tomorrow. *hug*
Thanks! I’ll check and see if he’s on our dental plan.
And thanks for the happy thoughts. I’m more worried about being bored senseless for 3 hours than any discomfort. heh
If you are able to listen to an iThingie, you could download some podcasts to listen to while away the hours.
Yeah, that’s a thought. There are TVs over the chairs, but they aren’t particularly useful, as the dentist’s head seems to spend most of the time eclipsing them.
I love Vicodin, especially during a multi-tooth visit.
