    I have a recent dentist story that I can share---err, I should say "horror" story.

    This occurred about a week ago, during my last session on a root canal procedure. I'm sitting in the chair, with all kinds of things stuffed in my mouth and the dentist declares she's finished--she just wants to take an xray of the cleaned out canal, to make sure it's been done properly. She then inserts a metal pin into the canal of the tooth (to give a good background so the canal will show up on the xray film), tells me to keep my mouth open and proceeds to take the xray. After a couple of takes, she says "all done!" and removes the cotton blobs and whatnot from my mouth and turns away. The assistant then makes some sort of comment and, thinking that all is clear for me to talk, I close my mouth with a snap (it had been open for over an hour). Unfortunately, she had forgotten to remove that nasty little metal pin and I rammed it straight into my jaw bone. With a scream I turned and looked at the dentist with the best "you idiot!" look I could muster....she had turned sheet white and was staring at me open-mouthed. In a rush and after profuse apologies, she then tried to pull the thing out----but no, it was stuck hard to the bone. After nearly climbing on top of me, with her fist in my mouth, she was able to yank it free. :rolleyes: I don't know who was more close to fainting, me or her. It healed up quickly and I was no worse for wear, but it was an experience I'll not soon forget! :eek:

    I'm not particularly fond of going to the dentist, but with a good hygentist there is no pain at all. Unfortunately, I've only ever encountered one of that calibre.

    I have no qualms about taking shots of anasthesia as recommended. I've had one aborted root canal. The tooth was too far gone to save. (Always wear mouth guards!) When that tooth was removed I had an implant put in it's place which required a bone graft. Neither the bone graft, nor the following placement of the base of the implant are particularly pleasant and I would NOT recommend going through either without a shot or three. Getting the shot itself was not at all bad as the periodontist used a topical anasthetic first.

    Oh, and by the way, my mouth is so big (officially confirmed by the periodontist mentioned above) that I never even noticed when my wisdom teeth emerged. :D

    Here is MY event recount from the dentists:

    "Hello, just sit down, I won't be a minute."

    "Will it hurt?"

    "No, just a routine check up."

    "Are you sure?"

    "Yes, perfectly."

    *chair goes down*

    "Right."

    *drilling noise*

    "I thought this was a check up!"

    "It is."

    *whirring noise, several chunks of teeth get detonated (practically)*

    "Did it hurt?"

    "No comment."

    "There, see. now have a gargle."

    So he hands me this cup of pink stuff, and I gargle, then go to sit wih mum. Then my brother goes in - apparently he whimpered, wriggled a lot and nearly lost his tongue, argued, said "ow" constantly and drunk the pink water.

    He didn't feel well that day, muhahahaha... :evil:

    Our dentists are nice
