View Full Version : Are you a dental coward?

Because I certainly am!!!!!

And at the moment I have a howling toothache, and I know I don't deserve any sympathy.

A filling in one of my molars fell out and took half the tooth away with it ... about six months ago, can you believe? ... and is finally bothering me!

I know, I know, this can impact heart health. Finally told Mr. ABC to make an appt. with *his* dentist for me, as soon as possible. He goes all the time for check-ups, teeth cleaning ... you name it ... plus he plays tennis with the guy!

Am too embarrassed to go back to my own ... which I *might* explain later on. ... :smile-new:

Until then, since his "wonderful" guy's office is CLOSED today, am putting on another dollup of Extra Strength Oragel in the gaping great hole!

Please, please, tell me that I am not the only one in here who is such a coward!

I would rather go through the *fun* of childbirth again ... and it was no picnic ... than to face a trip to the dentist's office! (need a smiley for blushing in here!)

There are three things that scare me more than anything. Those are snaked, big spiders, and the dentist.

Not just heart health. The dentist doesn't scare me; an infection that can get to the brain certainly does.

I read some where if you dont get this condition taken care of within 96 hours you wake up Monday morning a liberal. If that doesnt make you go to the dentist nothing will.:lemo:

I don't know that my wife is afraid of dentists but she sure don't like'm. She'll do most anything to avoid them. Her luck/genes/habits make it work for her. Relatively few problems, good dental hygiene from her youngest childhood and old men dentist who like to dote on the ladies.

Me? Not so much. But I'm going through a near complete rebuild right now so it's just as well that they don't bother me. The oral surgeon pulled two yesterday. That's after my dentist sent me over there as his last attempt was two and a half hours in the chair and he still left some root behind. I think I still have one or two more to repair and get a new partial built (my fourth) before I'm to be considered 'finished' ---- for now. Of course this is after a 5 tooth permanent bridge, two individual new crowns replacing old ones and one filling.

What does scare me? I have an unreasonable fear of drowning.

Sounds like you either have great dental insurance or they're having you sign up for a loan. :biggrin-new:

What scares me about the dentist (at least the ones in Sarasota) is their predatory habits. When I went to the last one, she said she was so delighted and excited that she saw I had some implants. I told her to not get too excited, that did it while I was still working and had dental insurance. Her interest in me faded. LOL.

We're heading to St Louis this fall where I will go to the dentist that I trust. The other one here I'll use for having my teeth cleaned every 3 months. It's cheaper than getting all that dental work, been there, done that. I've learned.

I went to the dentist this year for the first time in 17 years. I have a big fear of dentists. However, believe it or not, my teeth weren't that bad. Just 3 small cavities. My gums needs work but they will recover. I will be going regularly from now on.

Bless your boots, NJ ... :love_heart:

Makes me feel better to hear this from a man!


My gums needs work but they will recover.

Friend of mine whose father was a dentist, told me long ago that most people do not realize the need to brush the gums as thoroughly as the teeth. Gums need daily stimulation in order for the teeth to remain healthy as well.

My problem with dentists, is NOT that I don't go ... on the contrary, it is the fact that I do, that has led to my fears.

Being the very vain creature that I am, :smile-new: ... I have had more work done (and put up with more pain) than you would believe.

I am now the proud owner of what dentists like to refer to as a "dazzling smile." Yes, all my top teeth are capped, bright sparkling white, nicely shaped specimens. I do love what they look like.

The bottom set, however (where this old filling finally gave out) is another matter altogether.
I hesitate to have all my lower teeth done,because it is likely to change the shape of my mouth ... overbites etc.

Luckily for this chicken that I am ... it is a molar in the back that I am having trouble with ...it doesn't show when I smile or speak. Would have had it taken care of sooner if it had!!!

Am doing fine ... so far with the Oragel, but can't wait to have this taken care of.

Have a dinner party for friends coming up 2 weeks from today at our place, and am panicking at having to go through with it in pain.

As I said in the beginning, I deserve no sympathy whatsoever ... is totally of my own doing!

Oh my!

Did I ever speak too soon earlier on in here when I wrote that am doing "fine" on the Oragel.

I am truly not one to complain ... especially to *strangers* online! Love CU, but don't know any of you personally. No insult intended.

But at the moment, I desperatately need a DISTRACTION to get through this "exquisite" pain ... which I do deserve for being such a fool to not go to the dentist sooner.

The words "exquisite pain" bring back funny memories from a long ago party in a frat house that Mr. ABC and I attended ... of a lefty, artist friend of ours in Canada. A total dingbat, but a very good artist.

I had a whopping great headache at the time ... and he told me to "embrace" it ... "pain is what makes you feel alive" or some such ridiculous words. Could have hit him, but didn't.

Oh Mercy! Would *now* if I had it to do it over!

Monday can not come soon enough. Am about ready to take a pair of pliers and rip the blinking tooth out myself!!!

Nevermind ... Mr. ABC has just given me a shot of brandy and I took an aspirin 20 minutes ago ... should work I think, crossing fingers!

Enough of this, all for now ~ ABC

.....................

My dental ins went away with my employment back in '08. It wasn't all that great even then. Everything I do now is out of pocket. I told my current 'employer' (the fella I'm currently consulting for) that when my teeth get finished, I'm quitting. Problem is I don't think my teeth will ever get finished.

I started repairs when I was 11 and have been actively filling, capping and rebuilding ever since. I just hate to think where I would be had I not also been brushing teeth, gums and tongue and getting frequent cleanings my whole life.

-----

On a similar note to ABC, I found out I'm more sensitive to Vicodin these days than I used to be. After the extractions Thursday I've had to smaple the pain killers a bit and have ended up a bit spin dizzy at times.

I can't take vicodin or any of those pain killers. They really got me sick after my knee surgery, so I weaned myself off them quickly.

When I was a kid, I had an old-fashioned dentist who wouldn't even give a shot of novacaine. I learned to grip the arms of the dental chair and hang on. Probably that's why the dentists now don't frighten me. The various shots, etc make everything so much more tolerable.

Dental insurance just isn't all that great anyway. My old policy had a limit of $1k a year. You can go through that really fast. There are so darned many dentists here in Sarasota that I guess they're hard up for business. With the economy in it's current shape, people are delaying dental work. When a new patient comes, they want to redo your whole mouth, even if it's already been redone. It's scary here. I've never felt that way before, but it could be that I had a dentist I totally trusted in St Louis that I've gone to for at least 20 years. Maybe if I were trying to find a new dentist in St Louis, I'd run into the same problem. Both my sons, my daughter in law, and my sister and BIL all go to my St Louis dentist.

The only thing that scares me is the cost and I have dental insurance!

Long procedures did bother my neck in the past, not sure what will happen post surgery.

I usually get the root canal and skip the crown as my insurance only covers 50% of the crown and my issues have been with back teeth from where I had bands from braces as a kid. (Five years ago :evil-grin:)

The good news is I can roll part of my unused coverage over to the next calender year. So I have a little extra insurance banked for this year.

When I was young, we were very regular dentist visitors. One of my father's best friends from childhood is a dentist, and his father was a dentist, and his son was, at the time, becoming a dentist. Later in my teen years, "young Matt," the son, became my regular dentist, and he is good. On the couple of occasions when he's had to drill on me, it was like it didn't even happen, and that was even without using Novocaine (needless to say, these were occasions in which he didn't have to drill deep). He's just that excellent with a drill.

When I was about 23, my wisdom teeth came in, of course creating some fairly serious pain for me on a Friday afternoon. I called Matt's office and explained the pain and he said he had been expecting my wisdom teeth to start causing me problems soon, based upon my last X-rays. He called in a script for me and told me to come in Monday morning, which I did. This experience taught me that I cannot take hydrocodone, because I had a horrible reaction to it, so I basically traded out the hydrocode for Jack Daniels for the rest of the weekend.

Monday morning came, and Matt took one look at the X-rays and said that yep, I was going to have to get my wisdom teeth taken out. He set up an appointment for the next afternoon with an oral surgeon, someone whose son I had known in middle school.

Bear ye in mind that I had never had any form of surgery or indeed any medical procedure more intense than a couple of stitches and a splint at this point in my life. I had never been under any form of anesthesia in my life, and honestly I didn't know what to expect, but I put my faith in this oral surgeon to take care of everything and I didn't really worry about it.

In I go to the oral surgeon, I've been NPO for 12 hours, filled out all of the forms, etc., etc. I got up into the chair and they started the IV, and there was the expected "count backwards" business. So I counted backwards and felt myself lifting off the table and everything was supposedly fine.


It wasn't.


The paralytic that they administered worked just fine. I was good and paralyzed. The anesthesia that was supposed to put me under .... didn't.


I wound up going through the entire procedure of having my teeth ripped out of my skull while I was wide awake, but paralyzed. I could hear and feel the teeth getting drilled on, then crushed up with a pair of pliers, and then yanked out of my head, each for four teeth. There simply are no words to describe how incredibly horrible that experience was. It's worse than anything I can think of in any horror movie. To this very day, nearly twenty years later, I have nightmares of that incident and wake up screaming about once every two weeks or so.


I've been back to the dentist one time since that experience, and I damn near went homicidal during a 30-minute cleaning. I can't even go in the door of a dentist these days.

Adam ... you are such a sweetheart.

I don't know you, but I could hug you. Bless your boots! ... :love_heart:

That is *exactly* why I am too embarrassed to go back to my own dentist's office. I too, "damn near went homicidal" during a cleaning session.

Was pleased with all my new "pearly whites" that I had endured all the pain for ... and of course, they then set up an automatic appt. when done ... to come back later for a "cleaning/fleecing"-you-for-yet--MORE-money appointment!!!

So ... I then came back to have my bottom teeth cleaned, which then looked nowhere near as good as the top ones, and as I intended to come back to have my bottom ones whitened to match ... I fearfully kept my appointment.

Have always hated having my teeth cleaned ... but ... and close your eyes Linda, 'cause am about to use the word "bitch" again in here! (friendly-smile!)

This woman was the epitome of the word BITCH! A bitch from HELL itself, in fact!

She was not the least bit gentle, and I kept wincing, and finally put my hand up, in protest ... and yelled "STOP! You are hurting me, I don't want anymore!"

Well, you can just imagine what she said back to me, can you not? ... :biggrin-new:

So after getting up and leaving will all eyes upon me ... I have never been back since!

At least Mr. ABC's dentist friend will now know all about me, before I even get there, thank goodness!

Oh Mercy! ... The "exquisiteness " of all this pain that lets me know "that I am ALIVE" as that old friend said ... is getting to me ... will be back later when I can to reply to a few others in here!

I think I am going insane with this pain. Is almost tomorrow (monday) thank goodness ... when hubby's dentist friend can give me some kind of pain killer script til I can get it taken care of.

My sister, poor thing, who is a what is it called ... can't think at the moment ... um ... bipolar, that's the word I want. She told me that "journaling" is good therapy.

Well ... I don't have a psychiatrist, as she does, but am trying to do it in here. Am honestly sorry guys!

So far 190 people have read it ... bless their boots. Makes me feel a bit better at least.

Really can't complain to my hubby, as he has much, much, bigger problems to deal with at the moment, with his esophageal cancer treatment appointment coming up on August 14th.

Oh Mercy! Am missing "Downton Abbey" ... will really help take my mind off of this much deserved garbage!

That would have me think twice before going to a dentist again also.

I had foot surgery once and they did not use enough local.

I felt the knife hit the bone of my foot....I about kicked the doctor...

1. Orajel only works the first day of pain. Your gums develop tolerance to it quickly. It's a substance that is similar to cocaine, back when doctors used cocaine as a topical anesthetic. When it stops working, gargle every 15-30 minutes with whiskey. It's your decision whether to swallow it or spit it out, but it will help with the infection.


2. If half your tooth falls out, sooner or later it is going to hurt. It's going to abcess and your gum will "bump out", as my dentist refers to the bump of pus that grows on your gum on the other side of the abcess. Dental abcesses are the second worst pain I have ever experienced, the worst being gall stone pain.


I hate going to the dentist, but it hurts more not to go. I have to get 4 cleanings a year, 2 from my dentist and 2 from the periodontist. I've had all the dental work done that I can short of having all my teeth pulled and getting dentures. I had orthodontics as a teen, I've had my wisdom teeth pulled and I had periodontal surgery. It all sucks, but the up side is that dentists can prescribe vicodin or tylenol 3s.

Oh boy! Are you ever correct noonwitch! I am living in "a world of hurt" at the moment. (half-hearted-smile!)


When it stops working, gargle every 15-30 minutes with whiskey. It's your decision whether to swallow it or spit it out, but it will help with the infection.

Ooh! I like that suggestion! Have run out of brandy to take before going to bed, in order to finally get some rest. Of course, I'll "swallow" it after ... why not ... should get to the blood stream faster! ... :biggrin-new:


If half your tooth falls out, sooner or later it is going to hurt. It's going to abcess ... etc.

Correct again, Dr. Noonwitch! (smile!) 'Tis indeed what I have.

Managed to get an appt. for 9:30 this morning due to a cancellation, can you believe, the luck? Had x-rays and all the prodding and poking etc. done ... and now have an appt. with a specialist in "Endodontics" whatever that is ... to have a charming root canal done 3 days from now, in a nearby town.

And from there ... back to Mr. ABC's dentist again for crown work. Oh the joy of it all escapes me! At least new dentist has given me a prescription for Amoxycillin (who cares how I spelled it) to take care of the infection ... and tells me as soon as I have the root work done, the pain will go away!


Dental abcesses are the second worst pain I have ever experienced, the worst being gall stone pain.

Oh you poor thing! I can't even imagine what that must have felt like. This pain that I am going through at the moment, is wild and wooly enough!

Hopefully, you will never have to go through it again, noonie!

My biggest issue is the Novocaine doesn't last. They have to give me six shots of it before I even start to get numb, and that wears off pretty quick. I have very sensitive teeth. So the littlest things poking and prodding them hurt like crazy.

WTF. Are you shitting us? That is incredibly horrific.

Are you saying you felt it too? I can't imagine you didn't pass out from the pain.Yep, though the pain was dulled a bit. But I was paralyzed and wide awake for the whole, horrible thing. And yes, it was incredibly horrific. There's a reason why I still have wake-up-screaming-in-the-middle-of-the-night nightmares about it twenty years later. Alfred Hitchcock and Wes Craven together could not have dreamed that horror up.

Needless to say, I threatened the anesthesiologist (anesthetist? I never can remember which is which) in the pre-surgical for my hip with hunting down her, her family, her family's family, her friends, people she barely remembered from high school, and all of the aforementioned's dogs, cats, hamsters, and goldfish and doling out the most horrible deaths imaginable if I had the same experience while they were sawing off the top of what remained of my femur. Fortunately, they managed to get it right when they were replacing my hip, so no one had to die unnecessarily.

Adam ...

Was thinking about you yesterday at the specialist's office while "white-knuckling" it in the chair, practically *inverted* ... strange position to be in for so long.

How beyond horrific for you. Ugh!

While my experience yesterday in no possible way, can equal yours, it was not so pleasant either.

Good old "Murphy's Law" kicked in and screwed up everything. She could not finish my appt. due to my tooth "erupting" ... will not go into the disgusting details.

So naturally, have to go back again in a couple of weeks time. I'd say about 50% of the pain has subsided however, thank goodness.

Is reason I came in this morning and posted the test in The Lounge. Still need to keep myself distracted.

Guess that subject should win in "The Lead Balloon Contest," huh? ... :biggrin-new:

Nevermind ... is time to dose myself with 2 more aspirins and a quick "whisky" swirl that noonie suggested ... which DOES indeed work to numb the gum!
