So I did it! Got my wisdom tooth pulled! They couldn't pull it the first time because I had an absess. But they finally pulled it yesterday. Even though I can't open my mouth all the way today, it feels better.
When I go for cleanings, I wear headphones so I don't hear them so I can pretty much get through that alive. But it's still the anxity of it all. When I was 17, I was pregnant and had an impacted wisdom tooth. I am allergic to novacaine. The dentist refused to touch me. The ob wanted it out now since I was getting sick. Finally, on Mother's Day, we found a dentist who was willing to help. So they closed down the office, and I sat in the chair with my dentist, ob, and my mom. I could have nothing to ease the pain. They had to dislocate my jaw and break my tooth into four pieces to get it out. But each piece they took out felt so good. So that my friends, is why I am afraid of the dentist.
