I find it oddly amusing that at the ripe old age of almost 35 (minus about two weeks- and yes, I just revealed my true 30-something status!), my one wisdom tooth has to decided to make an appearance.
I was wondering about the mild, dull jaw pain I had been feeling the past few weeks. After a light bulb moment last night, I reached into the back of my mouth and actually felt the outline of the little sucker!
I guess I shouldn’t complain, since I only need to have one wisdom tooth removed. I opted for the general anesthesia since I have had Novocain before for fillings, and have always had to keep asking for more. I think for this one, I would rather not be aware of any of it!
A quick trip to the dentist and oral surgeon yesterday afternoon, with the two boys I might add, resulted in a schedule removal of the offender this morning. I couldn’t be prouder of the boys (almost four and almost two), the were so patient and well-behaved during the whole ordeal. I guess the stickers, prizes at the dentist, and cinnamon roll bribery might have also played a small role…
So, by the time you read this, I will probably be under anesthesia and minus one wisdom tooth. The oral surgeon informed me that the anesthesia they use now doesn’t make you feel crummy for the rest of the day. We’ll see—bring on the drugs!
