12/10/08 - I hate the dentist, still.

Yesterday I had a dentist appointment. I had to get a teeth cleaning and a filling. The teeth cleaning I can handle, to a point, but the filling is not something I particularly enjoy. Let me rephrase, I hate any work on my teeth. I don't like people talking about teeth around me, I don't like other people touching my teeth, or really even thinking about touching my teeth.

This time around, since I was getting the gas for my filling, I was given the option to use it for the cleaning as well, and you better believe I wasn't going to pass it up. That stuff is amazing. The problem yesterday though is that it made me a little sick to my stomach. Every once in a while, I would get so high on the stuff, I'd have to start breathing through my mouth to keep from throwing up. It didn't help that while waiting between cleaning and the filling, I laid there for probably 15 minutes or more (the actual amount of time is blurred by the fact that I was high on laughing gas). I do recall listening to the same song multiple times and that song is over 5 minutes long.

I recall while under the influence that I had several really good ideas for blog posts, but alas, my memory has failed me so I'm blogging about the fact that I had some good ideas.

I'm going to spare everyone the details because 1) I don't want to relive the experience and 2) if I ever came across a website discussing teeth procedures, I would never visit again. The whole thing sucked, and I did not feel well for several hours after the procedure. The appointment was at 7:00, lasted until 9:00 and I didn't feel like actually getting up and moving around until about 1:00.

Although I hate the dentist, one thing I actually do enjoy now is the polishing part of the procedure, mainly because they use Chocolate flavoring now which is pretty good and there is no scratching going on, just a light buffing motion on the teeth.

On a side note, Makenna loves standing up. If there is anything around that she can grab, she will try to pull herself up and she is pretty good at it too.
