So I'm back from my dental appointment and holy shit....
I just got a filling. I didn't think it would be a big deal.. b/c it's just a filling right? I've never had one done before so didn't know what to expect.
They put numbing ointment on the area and.... that was it. Uhm.. ok... I thought I would've gotten a numbing shot too but I guess not.
Dentist proceeds to start cleaning the cavity out and HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
Yes, the profanities are necessary b/c it HURT.
When she used the drill on the tooth, it vibrated the entire area obviously, but also made everything scream w/ horrible horrible painful sensitivity.
Never having had a filling done before.. I didn't know what was normal or not so just endured it, but my god.. I wanted to scream. That was frickin awful and I seriously feel like crying thinking about it.
Then, I dunno what the heck she was doing with the scraper thing, but it felt like she was aggressively pushing my gums back and that hurt like shit too.
Obviously I should've spoken up since I'm sure it's not supposed to hurt that much and I definitely will be bringing it up for the next filling.
Was going to request that they just do the remaining 2 and get it done and over with, but after this.. HELL NO. I'll just do one at a time.
Just... ugh.. this was awful and again.. I can see why people hate going to the dentist now :(
My next appointment is on the 10th of next month. I have to give my mouth some time to heal and rest after this shit.....
