You want me to do what?

So, I went to the dentist, because I had a horrible tooth ache, long story short I needed a crown. Never had a crown! Let me tell you what I do have: A chipped front tooth from Chelsea hitting me in the face with a Ken doll, a bridge from my tooth that had to be pulled because the root got severed during my wisdom teeth getting pulled out, and a gum graft. For those of you who aren't familiar with that, it is when they cut gum from the roof of your mouth and sew it on to where your gums are receeding. I guess it's true that you don't remember pain, because after the novicane wore off I swear the pain was greater than any of the above procedures! It truly felt like I was being jabbed again and again with an icepick! So, after 2 hydro's, 6 Ibuprofen's, 4 acetaminophen's, and an icepack the pain subsided! And guess what was suggested next! A tooth implant to replace my bridge. That basically consists of them drilling a screw into my jawbone and attaching a tooth to the end of it! Ya, sign me up for that too please!

It's not as bad as you might think, it's actually pretty cool, for the ones doing the procedure. Just make sure they don't hit your major nerve and have your face go permanently numb forever!
