How healthy are your teeth/mouth in general?
Have you had any terrible experiences at the dentist's office in the past?
I just spent 2 and a half hours in the chair and I feel like I got hit by a pile of bricks. I've had some really bad experiences with the dentist in the past, which still makes me dread going, but I love my current one; the people at my office are super nice, my dentist is very careful and numbs thoroughly (my old one would routinely under-numb me), and I just get the gas and watch a movie while I'm there. Today though it felt like they were going to town on my gums and I feel really groggy and weird and like it's time to just snuggle under the covers and eat soup all day. :(
As for terrible experiences, I once had a painful infection that my old dentist cleaned out and told me would be fine, and they put a cap over it and, just my luck, the pain got worse and I ended up having an abscess and the entire tooth had to be removed.
My teeth in general are really bad and I have tons of cavities, and it's really frustrating. Does anyone else have issues like that? :(
