Visiting the Dentist

I went to the dentist yesterday for my routine cleaning and check-up. Unfortunately I had a tooth with a crown on it that needed some work. I thought crowns lasted forever, but I learned that they do not. Anyhow, I spent two hours there today with my mouth open. I'm so thankful that someone invented this gizmo that keeps your mouth open enough for them to work on your teeth and suctions all at the same time!! It definately decreases the discomfort from holding your mouth open for hours at a time.


Our dentist has a few "special touches." After you have had dental work done they give you some Advil & Tylenol while you are still there and they give you a coupon for a free milk shake. They had to cut away on some of my gums today, so they sent me home with more Advil & Tylenol and said I definately would need it! I went to pick up my shake and thought I deserved some "comfort food" so stopped at McDonald's for french fries. Definately not on the Weight Watcher's plan.

Off to eat my fries before all the numbness wears off and my mouth is too sore to eat anything.

So...I saw this post last night, and today when I was marketing, I couldn't get the french fries pic out of my mind. So I gave in and stopped at Micky Dees to buy myself a fry. Yumm! :) It hit the spot. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for reminding me I need to go to the dentist. I do not like doing this so put it off forever. I hope my crown is ok.

Hope you are feeling better! I really need to go to the dentist...this post was jsut the reminder I needed. I haven't gone to the dentist since becoming a Wittleder, and I am not proud of that. I have to just make myself do it!
