The last time I went to the dentist was in high school. The only toothache I've ever had since then was 10 years later, which was about 11 years ago. (Yes, I was in high school 21+ years ago.) It was the last tooth at the back of the left side, and the toothache was on and off for about a year, but was never bad enough to force me to go to a dentist at the time, so I never did, and then the toothaches went away. Since then, the tooth has slowly been rotting away. I guess the nerves were the first to go…
So anyway… I'm going to the dentist next week. I've known for a while I should. Now's the time.
When you haven't been to the dentist for over 20 years, there's a large amount of trepidation that builds up. I'd be happy to be put to sleep, but apparently the best I can expect will be anaesthetic and gas. I hope that's enough.Apart from that one tooth, the rest of my teeth are just about perfect. Almost. They could be a bit whiter, but they're alright. I've been pretty happy – and lucky – overall. No other toothaches or anything. Phew!
