Mad as an old wet hen!!
Okay, girls, I need a friend's shoulder to cry on this morning. Maybe more than one.
And, anyone who is willing to listen to me bitch.
You see, I went to the dentist last Thursday and came out of that office mad, confused and upset. You see, I have been losing teeth at a faster rate than anyone would want. I have a lot of 'empty' space on the right side of my mouth and then I had three teeth pulled on the left side. One of those I had a post put in.
So, I asked my dentist (who is a man of very few words) what my options were to fill in the one space that was noticeable when I talked. You might say it was more cosmetic than medical.
The receptionist was to email me the options. I never got them. Then, I am informed that my insurance has okayed a bridge (which was how I was leaning) so I started asking what did putting a bridge in, entail. All I got was "we'll prep the two adjoining teeth and then cement in a permanent replacement." End of explanation. I should have pushed. I wish I had.
So, last Thursday I went in for the "prep". Figured an impression was in store. But, when the impression was made, here the dentist comes with a big needle and proceeds to give me 4 big, ole shots. What the dickens is going on.
To make a long story short, after the dentist had grounded down two perfectly good teeth so he could attach my 'bridge' to them, I came out of there mad as an old wet hen!! Mad at him for not explaining things to me and even madder at myself for not pushing for answers.
So, the reason for this post. Don't even think about saying the word bridge to me ever again! And, I would highly recommend you think long and hard about such a procedure if you have the need to 'fill a space' in your mouth.
Thanks for listening. I feel better now. You all are such sweet friends!!
