This way to Crazy Town

{Image found here}

Nearly three months after the drama began, I finally got my permanent crown the other day. And the whole time I'm laying there, all I can think is that I am a failure. I couldn't even brush my teeth and floss correctly. They whittled my tooth down to nothing and now I have a fake one. Loser, much?

Cue the tears.

I don't know why I have had such an extreme reaction to this tooth drama. I am not normally so emotional about silly stuff.

Anyone else have this reaction to dental work? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Crazy, Party of 1.

No. I totally know what you mean. I had 11, yes 11 cavities when I saw the dentist up here for the first time. Now, it wasn't entirely my fault because my old dentist that ALL my family and my mom's family goes to is old fashioned and doesn't fill teeth until they've progressed to a certain degree, but that didn't stop me from feeling awful. So pretty much my entire mouth has fake bits and pieces. Probably in almost all of my teeth.

I got a crown about a year ago now and cried for a half hour over having bitten a bone and broken my tooth all the way up at the top of my root.

I had to get a crown a few years ago and it was most draining dental experience ever. The fact that I had to wear the fake/temporary tooth for weeks was insane and then when I finally did get the crown I had to go back because a nerve was exposed.

It's super frustrating so I know how you feel.

I am TERRIFIED of the dentist. I get laughing gas just to get my teeth cleaned. Ugh. I got a crown at the end of last year and have to say it was the most painful experience. Luckily my dentist is
A) Hot
B) Does Botox too!
