Today I had to extract a wisdom tooth.
Three injections of numbing stuff, my mouth felt like it was full of cotton balls. As we were waiting for the numbness to set in, the Dental Nurse was telling me her horror wisdom tooth extraction story! She had two out on either side and ended up drooling from both corners, while she was on the bus going home!!! Gross! Even the Dentist chided her for telling me horror stories.
It was a bit scary during the extraction, every time he reached for another tool it seemed bigger than the first! I was starting to wonder if he was going to bring out a hammer and chisel!
Fortunately not, its out and its done. Now the numbness stuff is wearing off, and I'll be living on Nurofen Plus for the rest of the week.
