Part of the top of one of my molars broke at the weekend (tip - don't eat Cadbury's toffee eclairs!!), and so I took a trip to the denist on Tuesday to have it checked out. Haven't been for a while (slap my wrists!), so after a very thorough exam, I was told I obviously had to have the broken tooth sorted, plus a couple more small fillings. I was feeling no pain whatsoever, and the dentist was confident she could just build the broken tooth back up. Went in this morning to have this done ... or so I thought ... once she started cleaning the tooth, it became apparent that I need a root canal!! Oh joy! So today's treatment was drilling down and cleaning out the canal and filling with a temporary filling. I have to return in a week to have the rest of the treatment for that tooth (have to make sure there is no infection left before filling it properly). Luckily I'm able to have that part of the treatment done on the NHS, otherwise it would have cost me £360-£495 - OMG!!!!!
So, suffice to say I'm bummed out at the moment. The numbness is subsiding, and the pain is starting - ouch! Thankfully all my DT cards are made and all posts scheduled (except one) so at least all that's out of the way. So I'm sorry in advance for not visiting your blogs over the next few days, as I'll be lying on the couch moaning with pain...LOL!!!
