I have had a painful tooth for a few months. It was sometime so painful I could not sleep. The tooth had become so sensitive I was cautious about everything that went into my mouth. Everything caused it to ache - hot, cold, pressure, and exercise for some reason caused it to be uncomfortable. I have been through several bottles of ibuprofen and acetaminophen, just to maintain normal daily activities.
But today I went to the dentist and had the tooth removed. It is still a little numb but I already feel much better. It is so great not to be in pain!!! I am still plagued by the habits of dealing with the painful tooth, I still tip my head to keep cold drinks away from the absent tooth. It is pretty comical.
I was extremely nervous about my visit to the dentist. My anxiety level was super high! I had a good friend offer me a blessing. During the blessing he said a host of angels would buoy me up and I would be calm during my procedure. He also said I would not have complications and would have a positive outcome. It was truly a miracle! The entire time of my appointment I was able to be calm and to help keep myself relaxed. I was sure my gag reflex was going to be terrible but I did not have a single issue with it except when he was putting in the stitches. The entire experience as a true joy and I was very blessed!
Thanks so much - Dr. D - You are the best!!!!!
