    I've only just finished having all the top ones sorted they look lovely now but by God I went through the blinking mill & had to fight for it coz it was on the NHS. I had an amazing dentist in Devon who really looked after me. We got on great, I used to help him with his English coz he's Romanian I used to teach him new words & test him on them next time I saw him he was lovely.

    My new dentist in Yorkshire is also really nice though
    I said " you can stick that sharp proddy thing back in its wrapper coz it's not coming anywhere near my mouth "
    He said "Okay let's do an x-ray" haha! Good man
    I'm on antibiotics now. I every 8 hours. 21 little miracle tablets. I hope they work!
    I'm not one for medication normally but jeez the pain just give me the drugs doc.

    When water-skiing once, I was driving the boat, with my dentist on the tow. I dropped him for a laugh about a half a mile out to sea ... the following week I needed a tooth out ... that hurt

    Have you booked the appointment Susie? Have you set a date & are you armed with a treatment plan?

    I'm not sure how much use I'm going to be as I don't know your character. It's horses for courses you see & people deal with things differently. Advice sometimes isn't my strong point.

    Tip number one - lay it on thick like lurpak sedation costs them oodles of money & the NHS will avoid this route if at all possible.
    Unless of course you are going private? in which case, knock yourself out, no pun intended.

    Tip number two - Do not ... I repeat... DO NOT search Google for similar experiences. You will absolutely mess your pants in the process & it's just generally very unhelpful

    Tip number 3 - Don't think about it - just do it get the situation by the short & curlies & go in there like a warrior princess. YOU WILL NOT BE BEAT. You've got this & you are going to look amazing & be pain free.
    Now get in there & get it done.

    I do mean well I just can't help being me.

    Let us know how it goes. I want sympathy from you on the 1st December when I'm in the chair so don't forget me

    Having had several extractions in the past, all I can say is its not as bad as a filling, take a dose of ibuprofen about an hour before, and that will reduce any swelling after the extraction, which is where a lot of the pain is (it is also better than a lot of other painkillers for dental pain (trust me I have tried everything up to Tramadol) and remember to swill your mouth with salty water afterwards to keep the socket clean until it heals, the gum will close over the hole and the bone will fill the gap in time.
    All the best, and yes I know that feeling of swearing at the tooth and everything in general. Hugs

    I DID buy it a few days after you said about it. Cost me 3.50 sensy repair & protect & then I spent another 3 on another one the tooth needs coming out the toothypaste isn't going to glue it in!

    Yeah I will take ibuprofen
    It's miserable isn't it Grendel fed up with my silly teeth.
    It's one thing after another. My wisdom tooth is kicking off now as well coz it doesn't like my new teeth & it's ongoing.
    Makes me fed up sometimes.
    Never mind can't really complain when people have cancer & other stuff

    I'd say extractions are not bad either, I've always feared root canal and always said I'd never ever have one but the dentist said I need one.It's the drilling and the fear of them slipping into the nerve as he did years ago, left me in pain for a week until I demanded they take it out. That's where the fear came from I guess.

    Mr dentist had me booked in to take one toothypeg out & he took two out
    My wisdom tooth next door to the poorly tooth was being naughty so he said whilst I was having anaesthetic he might as well take that one out at the same time as it was no use to me really & it was "going to become a pain in the arse if it was left" I absolutely love my new dentist, he completely gets me & he has the patience of a saint, plus he's really funny & makes me laugh.

    I did get myself into a bit of a state I had a bit of a panic attack & couldn't breathe & they had to turn the air conditioning on then I was crying the nurse was absolutely brilliant & held my hand & said all the right things.
    I was a diabolical patient. I made such a fuss with the injections & had to have a second lot of anaesthetic coz I'd convinced everyone that the first lot hadn't worked I'm such a baby.
    They laughed at me afterwards coz I shouted yayyy & clapped lol

    I'm working on him to take the lot out for cosmetic reasons but he's cottoned on & it's nhs so it may take me a while to get round him animated-smileys-laughing-289.gif

    Thing is my top ones look ace & I want the bottom ones matching. Basically I want celeb looking teeth without the price tag coz I'm vain. My last dentist was easier to manipulate

    I'm going to buy them a really nice Xmas card & a little hamper gift for the surgery. I'm so impressed with them.
    I phoned them as a new patient & literally had an appointment for an hour later. Then I was given antibiotics & was back in the chair for treatment 2 weeks later.
    It can be a bit of a postcode lottery with nhs dentists but once again I have struck gold & been incredibly lucky.
    I can finally crack on with some serious job hunting now that I'm not in constant pain.
