A trip to the dentist...

Why did I go???? (shaking my head)
It was THE most awful thing in the world. (Yes, I would rather give birth.) Last time I did sedation. That way is exspensive, so I thought I would give it a try with nitrous.
I felt I was being sufficated the whole time.
I guess I must breath out of my mouth more than I realized.

When it was all over, 3 hours later, I realized I had to come
back to get the permanent crown put on. O'my gosh.
They gave me valium for the next visit.
I feel like such a baby. I am sure 90% of the fear is in my head.

So today wasn't that great. Hopefully the rest of the week will be better.

Sorry it was so bad. But at least they got you prepared for next time??

What IS it about going to the dentist. I share your feelings exactly (really, I would rather give birth then go to the dentist).

I had a root canal and was so scared that the dentist had to keep reminding me to breathe.

Are we related?
