Well, that was a good start wasn't it?
Went to work wednesday and I started to get toothache, thought nothing of it just took a couple of painkillers and left it.
Wednesday afternoon it got worse and yes, you can imagine what I'm going to say, by wednesday evening I was in agony.
It got that bad geoff took me to the local hospital thinking there would be an emergency dentist on call.
We got there about 9.30 pm and registered in to be told they wasn't an emergency dentist at all.
The nurses seeing the pain I was in gave me two tablets and thankfully after about an hour the pain eased.I saw a doctor who told me he could not do anything as he was not a qualified dentist, but he did take time to talk to me about it and said he would have a look at it. He turned round a brought one of those great big lights to shine into my mouth but it didn't work.
Anyway, he looked and said what I thought had happened, the tooth had just split and was nearly gone.
So, he sent me home and I went to the dentist the next day when they opened at 9am.I explained that I had been to the hospital the night before and saw a doctor.
They took an x-ray and said the same thing.The tooth had just broke and was crumbling away.
I could either get it re-made, so to speak or have it out.
Well, it would cost £500.00 to have it done so you can imagine my reply.
"Let's take it out, shall we?"
I was quite happy about that cause no more pain.
What I didn't realise was just how bad it was going to be.
You see,the tooth was the great big one at the back on the top.
She removed it and when the freezing had worn off I was just in so much pain as I was before.
She did worn me about this because of where the tooth was it is near your sinuses and it can turn nasty.By that she meant an infection. So she gave me a course of anti-biotics as well, these I have took and luckily nothings happened, in other words, no infection.
I had 2 days off work with this.
However, today is better I'll just keep taking painkillers.
It will take time to heal, me thinks,.
So, that was a brilliant way to start the new year, wasn't it???
anyway, get over this and I'll be fine.
