My Extraction

Friendly Caterpillar
I found this wee guy in the garden - just relaxing in the sun - sounds good to me. After what I went through today that's what I should be doing.

Let me explain. Today I went to the dentist - to have an extraction. That's right an EXTRACTION!!  Now bearing in mind I have a fairly big fear of going to the dentist this was a real trial for me.  I haven't had a tooth out since I was 14 (I'm 50 now) so a long time ago lol.  My wisdom tooth had an infected root and it really had to come out. Now I know what you are thinking - that girl needs all the wisdom she can get, and I probably would agree with you lol.

I was in a right old state by the time I was sitting in 'the chair'. However my dentist is a lovely guy and really tried to put me at ease - no easy task for the poor chap. He explained everything that was going to happen and what he was going to do.  Anyway with a few pulls, tugs (and whimpers) out it came. I am such a baby!

I wonder if the tooth fairy will come tonight!!:))

oh that hubby better be nice to you today and let the tooth fairy into your home tonight!
I have had 3 zapped out in the past two years and I have to admit the dentist has never worried me. That was until a female dentist here in France 'sorted' out an emergency for me. I have never had such pain and she would not give me an injection. I never have one normally for a filling but this was exceptional. Guess what I will never be seeing her again!!!!
Sure you will be fine tomorrow :-)) Diane

Let us know if the 'fairy' comes!
I've had my wisdom teeth cut out - not fun at all, so I sympathize with you!

Hope the tooth fairy leaves you a nice gift tonight! :)

Oh I had that experience about a year or so ago. Not fun. Sending lots of healing thoughts your way. I was just a puddle of nerves....

Poor you. Hugs from Wiltshire. Hope you feel better soon.
Hope the tooth fairy came!
I had a tooth extracted a couple of months ago - but was put to sleep to have it done. Next month, I'm facing having an implant, but I'll be put to sleep for that too. I am such a wimp when it comes to dental work!
Hope you haven't had any pain.
