Uh oh, more dental work!
June 3, 2017 9:34pm CST
I had my dental check up a few days ago. Even though I had two root canals recently, I was expecting bad news. I was correct. I have five cavities - three of them are where I've clenched my teeth so much that I've cracked fillings my dentist did two years ago. She wasn't too thrilled with me destroying her handiwork! I also have a permanent mental piece glued to the back of my front teeth. Yep....I managed to break that too! So I'm going to be having dental work into the middle of July. Once I'm all fixed up, she wants to fit me with clear retainers to wear all the time since I clench my teeth mostly during the day. I'm joking that I'm sending my former boss the bill for this, since she's the cause of all the stress

It hurts some. I'm allergic to the normal lidocaine and can't have the epinephrine that is usually in the shots to help numb due to a heart condition. Ends up taking quite a few extra shots (which thankfully doesn't bother me) and sometimes a few minutes of just clench my fists and deal with it.
