It wasn't so bad ...

Sometimes the argument within myself, the one that says 'That root canal wasn't so bad last week' ... is an exhausting argument, lacking conviction.

I didn't realise my root-canaled tooth hurt all the time until I noticed an absence of that continual pain post-dental visit.

And pre-dental visit, I couldn't have imagined how good it would feel to have the broken point on my molar rebuilt, leaving my tongue to experience the giddy delight of no longer snagging on said snapped off point.

Today I have to go back and have the dressing taken off and refilled with permanent material. And there are two other teeth needing snapped points repaired now that I no longer rely on my appalling 'in-process immigrant' travel insurance dental coverage.

I'll wander off and work on conviction ...

Glad that the anxiety over the dental procedures has been replaced by relief....

Well the anxiety only goes when she's done ... I was a wee blue woman until all was done.

Another appointment in 10 days, final work on that tooth, then 2 more to go.

Sigh ... I'll be braver than a brave thing by the time she's done with me however she is sweet, gentle and thorough.
