I finally was able to get a dentist appointment for 2 weeks from now. ( I have a very bad tooth ache.) Got a call last night asking if I wanted to come in today they had a cancellation I said sure. I showed up for the appointment. Filled out all their forms, giving all my Medical history. Where it said what tooth it was I told them the one (only one) top right side. They proceeded to take x rays of every other tooth but the one that was bad.
Dentist came in and asked which tooth hurt. Again I told him. He told me that he didn't have an x ray of that tooth, so he'll get one right away. (Oh it gets better.) After the x ray he comes back in and and says Yep you got a real bad tooth there. (NO CRAP) Well here's what we're going to do. (stupid me I thought he was going to pull it and put me out of pain.) Wrong!!!! he gave me a script for antibiotics (a 10 day course) and preceded to tell me when I came back he would pull the tooth. (When I came back????) Yeah they scheduled me for October 16th (thank God it was this year.)
My wife knowing that I have a very low threshold for pain and stupidity Told them thank you very much and pushed me out the door. I got home went out to the garage and opened my tool box, pulled out a good size vice grip (didn't bother cleaning it ) and pulled the dam tooth. (Oh yeah it hurt like a Well it hurt) My wife found out what I did , Gave me the meanest look and smacked me up side my head. She went in and called our family Doctor and we went down to see him. I had a bloody tee shirt in my mouth and they took me right in.
I never thought a doctor said those words, (at least to a patient). But all turned out well. I no longer have a tooth ache, Or a tooth for that matter. I canceled the dentist appointment. and I have a thirty day supply of pain pills. AND NO PAIN. I had a great day how about you.
