I woke up early this morning cause I couldn't sleep, on account of the fear of going to the dentist. Well, I took half of a valium and by the time I got to the office, I was pretty loopy. Needless to say, this dental experience was MUCH better than in the past. I was pretty calm all throughout and am ever so thankful for modern medicine!! My tooth is (so far) FINALLY feeling better!! I took a giant drink of ice water for the first time in six months without cringing in pain! Yippee!!!
My niece came into the dental office while I was in the chair...sorta out of it. I also had a rubber dam in my mouth to isolate the tooth being worked on, I looked pretty creepy. Anyway, she was a little leary of me. ***
My niece is mortified of getting a cavity (what with her daddy being a dentist and all). She insists that her teeth get brushed every night before bed and is convinced that missing just once will result in a cavity.
After they left, she got in the car and, in a panicky voice, asked her mom, "Mommy, on which night did Aunt Dani get a cavity?!"
