Death By Extraction

So… I just had my wisdom tooth extracted yesterday. Two wisdom tooth to be exact. It was fun (nope). Thrilling (not even close). A new world just opened up for me (Pfft! Dilusional)

I know I have to extract both many years ago but I convinced myself I can live with two abnormal tooth straining my already-cramp-jaw rather than paying a gazillion amount of cash to appease a dentist’s blood thirsty nature (Oh wait. I have cousins who are dentists… Hi! I love your beautiful set of pearly whites! Please put down those pliers)

It was a week ago that I realized that I couldn’t chew my food properly anymore. My jaws were… misaligning. Based on my medical knowledge (Google), it was probably because both wisdom tooth were pushing out and causing my jaw to misalign. It was not painful but I love food and I want to EAT MY FOOD AND NOT JUST SWALLOW IT UGH PORRIDGE.

Not wanting to wait any longer, I made a dental appointment yesterday. After x-ray, the doctor (or dentist? What is the proper name to refer a person who made a living by putting people out of their misery? See? I can be nice! I digress. I mean, they called themselves Doctor but their profession is, as Dentist so should I call em doctor or dentist? This is where you realize the things that goes in my head can be rubbish) said the tooth at the lower part is lying horizontally and was pretty close to my nerve. To remove it, surgery is the only way. There is a risk of the nerve but hey, I can live with a numb jaw and tongue for the rest of my life right? (I admit I took that joke from Deadpool)

But I said just go for it. I don’t want to think about it much coz if I do, I would just say “F*** this shit. I’m outta here! See you when I’m suffering agony worst than death, dentist!”

She (the dentist) then proceeded to give me 4 jabs of local anesthetic and I was asked to wait outside for few minutes to allow the numbness to kick in. When I was outside that I started to realize there’s a reason why I don’t see your friendly neighborhood dentist twice a year –I’m SERIOUSLY TERRIFIED ASS SHIT CRAZY SCARED I KID YOU NOT when it comes to dentist!  That was when I texted Joe that I wanted to run away –with my numb gum and drooling uncontrollably and all.

Just when I was about to reach the exit door, they called my name and duunn… dunn… dunnn…. No turning back now. I walked in and the chair… Oh God the chair… It’s like the electric chair minus the straps.

Surgery was done in less than an hour and the other wisdom tooth was just pulled out easily without much effort. Throughout it all I thought to myself, heck this is piece of cake. Why was I so scared of? I mean, yeah she did have to jab me again 5 more and it made my toes curl but yeah, it was not that bad.

OF COURSE IT WAS NOT THAT BAD! I WAS STILL NUMB FROM THE ANESTHETIC! An hour after the numbness subsides, I was curling in bed crying like a baby.

By the way, I am eating like a baby too right now –porridge. Ugh.
