I got a cavity filled today
January 31, 2018 6:17pm CST
When I was young the dentist put a sealant on a back molar. It cracked and I didn’t know it and it formed a tiny cavity. When I went to the next appointment they sand blasted it and put filling material on it. That’s been done quite a few times over the years but it got deep enough recently that they drilled it out and filled it today. They put two shots of novicane in at 4pm. It’s 7pm and is still numb. I can barely drink or eat. It hurts a lot to open my mouth from where the needle was put in the very back of my gums. It’s numb on my right side from my mouth to my ear and my throat. I sound drunk when I try to talk lol. I left early today to get groceries before I went to the dentist. I stopped and found a really easy to find geocache hidden in a guardrail as you can see in the photo I posted. About 14 years ago we made the switch from regular lightbulbs to cfls. I had no idea where to turn them in so I saved them in a bag in my closet. I learned that Home Depot accepts them so I stopped today and dropped them off there was 11 of them!

I used to hate going to the dentist but now I visit my dentist every month for my braces. And she has been taking care of my teeth for two years now. We even became friends. And I know I won't be afraid of going to the dentist anymore.

The dentist to me is more painful then braces but that is really awesome that this has taken your fear away! I got braces when I was 21 I think it was. I didn't have anyone to watch my daughter so she would sit on my lap while they did what they needed to do.
