My turn for pain...
Just got back from the dentist -- the first of a series of appointments covering an entire quadrant of my mouth at a time.

Today's mission: four crowns and a filling in the bottom left of my mouth. Numbness has worn off, but the two vicodin are in full effect. Whee...

I'm tapping out this post on my Palm, using the (new?) Palm LJ application, as I sit, half-slumped... away from my computer.

Need sleep... maybe I'll just lean my head against this wall...

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Holy crap. Your dentist believes in getting it done fast, I take it.

"Efficient", I think. :) As long as I'm going to be sore and miserable on one side of my mouth ANYWAY, may as well go for it... I've got too much work that needs doing, to take it slow.

Besides, I think it's cheaper to do them en masse. (For one thing, he can use *ONE* temp crown to cover all four teeth...) :)

Meanwhile, I'm gonna look like someone punched me in the head, for awhile. And vicodin will be my friend...

Yeah - plus one dose of anesthetic, one shot of novocaine...

I should talk to my dentist. I've still got a good six crowns plus several fillings to get done in the new year, and I'm beginning to think that would be the easier route...

Yow. :( May your mouth be merciful to you, as you are being to your mouth....

Yikes. I'm actually hoping my mouth will be a tad *MORE* merciful to me, than I've been to it... ;)

Well, I did think about that aspect of things. But it seems to me that the torments are merely instrumental to the goal of Higher Dental Health....
