Dental Trauma Day + Camille

Today was an interesting one. I had the dentists' office call me, waking me, to ask if I would come in earlier. Who DOES that? When you MAKE the appointment for a certain time, NO, you do not want to be woken up and asked to come in earlier. And did I tell them that? Of course not, I don't know how to say No to people! So I got up an hour and a half earlier than I was supposed to have. I had to, I had planned on doing certain errands before the appointment and others after. I had Lie to Me Season One and One Tree Hill Season 6 to buy. I needed to stop by Stop and Shop and pick up my pre-rented DVD's. I needed to stop by Blockbuster and pick up what Redbox didn't have, like Duplicity, a really good Julia Roberts/Clive Owen movie. And that was all before my appointment.

I get there exactly at my new time and this is when it got me really ticked. I waited in the exam room for 20 minutes before the dentist even arrived. Then he was there for maybe 3 minutes while he hurt me by using that freaking huge needle to inject my gums with the numbing stuff. Then he left AGAIN and was gone for 20 minutes. My Dad called which was weird, I was like I am AT the dentist remember?! His assistant arrived too and they started washing their hands to fill my cavity, when an office worker arrives and says another patient is on the phone and wants to talk to him. Does he say it will have to wait because he is with a patient who has been waiting 40 minutes now? Nope, he leaves, so does she, and I sit there for another 15 minutes because apparently patients who CALL have precedent over those IN the actual office!!

They finally return and again have to scrub their hands, etc. Finally we begin with MY torture. It ends up they drill two cavities that are side by side. My jaw was killing me. Then when they are done with that, can you guess what happens next? That's right, they both take off again, leaving me alone. Then they finally return to fill them. And he admits, after the first pain hits, that a few are going to feel like he is pushing toothpicks into my teeth! I say it feels much worse than that! And I swear I hear my mother's voice and it ends up being her. She sits in, but as they are literally IN my face, I can't see her until they are finally done with me. While the doc leaves for a minute, his assistant felt the need to tell me the cavities were HUGE and they took like 90% of my teeth, that I could end up needing a root canal and that I have to be careful for the rest of my life chewing on that side. The dentist returns and he tells me he was surprised at how big they were because the x-ray machine did not show them as being very big, but he doesn't mention root canals or anything. Then he tells me I need to make another appointment to get the one (or two, my Mom and I both couldn't hear right) on the right side done. My Mom walked with me to the secretary who actually asked me if I wanted to come in THURSDAY!! NO! Are you kidding me, I am in pain now, you think I want to return in 2 days for more?! NO. I made an appointment for September 15. My cleaning is October 30, so I think an appointment a month is good for me, as the dentist office terrifies me!

Agghh! I swear I have no idea WHY I am always seeming to be the one to get cavities, I brush my bloody teeth, I have been flossing a lot more (I have an irrational fear of flossing) than I used to, since my hygenist scolds the crap out of me for how red they are. But I brush them hard...which apparently is wrong to do too...aghhh! So why am I cavity afflicted?! Now the whole family is out to get me, Sam wants to see me flossing more, Dad wants me to get the kids mouth rinse that clings to where you need to brush MORE and they want me to trade my pulsing brush in for one that spins too! WHAT else do I have to do to stop the cavities. It has been me since we were kids, I always got the bad report cards on teeth! I was also the one who had to have my jaw corrected, I had the bionator through 5th grade which made me need a drool cloth in class, and then I had to have 2 sets of braces, which didn't work for long on my front teeth, which is why I needed the dental work I had done all through last summer, which resulted in me actually smiling for real for the camera! I used to hide my smile by pushing my bottom lip over my front teeth, Sandy still has to get me to relax and remember I have a smile I am proud of now! So I am dentally cursed it seems.

When we got outside I learned why my Mom had come to my 1 hour and 45 minute appointment, why my Dad had called. She had some really exciting news to share with me, which I cannot talk about on my blog, sorry. But she was so happy, we went out to celebrate. So I had to put my post-dentist plan on hold until tommorrow. It was very mush worth it between the news and eating at Outback...mmm. Although I was numb for half the meal, worrying food would pour out of the half of my mouth that was still totally numb, but yay, it didn't.

When we got home, my sisters and I watched Sunshine Cleaning, which ended up being really good. I wanted some things clarified, like does Nora return to the business and what about Winston, is he in the picture or what? But it was a really good story, and I loved Emily Blunt and Amy Adams as sisters, they were so amazing!

Then with Katie I watched a movie I picked out on a whim. I had never even heard of its' existence before and I know a lot about movies. It is called Camille. It stars Sienna Miller, James Franco and David (or is it Keith, the one who recently died) Carradine. It is the story of Camille (Miller) and Silas' (Franco) honeymoon. Silas does not love Camille and finds her totally annoying but feels forced into marrying her. After their wedding they are making their way to Niagra Falls with Camille's incessant happiness killing Silas so he tells her he can't stand her! He tells her to get on the bike and shut up, but as they drive she loses her wedding ring and they end up in an automobile accident and Camille dies...but wakes up again. As they make their way to Camille's beloved Niagra Falls honeymoon, Camille starts to...well...decompose. And Silas starts to fall in love with the woman he took for granted, as they run from the cops who think Silas has murdered his bride. There was an accident with a LOT of blood after all, and he had thought she was dead...at first. Now, he wants to make her happy by getting her to the Falls, but how can he be happy if the woman he loves is disappearing right in front of him? I loved the quirkiness of this movie, it was funny, and the ending made me go "awwww"!!! I loved it and if you like a romantic comedy that is full of quirkiness, go rent this, I know Blockbuster should have it somewhere in your area!! This movie made me smile, which is exactly what I needed from it. Now I am off to work on an email project I want to make, so that I can share good news with some of my friends. Have a quirky dentist-free night all!!

I've had 3-4 root canals and now two crowns. Just be careful with the teeth they took the cavities from, if they mentioned root canals that could mean that the teeth are very thin and fragile, which could break and you'll end up needing a crown or implant...yikes. I know it sucks, I am due back Sept. 10 for my final crown but my jaw has been sore since I went last week. Feel better.

Mmmmmm....Outback. I am drooling over here and it's only 8:30 in the morning!!

LadyStyx said...

Ooh Duplicity is one I've been wanting to see.

I hate the dentist too. I had the dr's office call me once, wanting me to go in (because it was really slow that day and they wanted to get the afternoon appointments out of the way)...so I go in and it took the dr an HOUR to get to me. Why? Because shortly after calling me in (original appt was for 130pm, they called me in at 10am), they had a rush of walk in patients and some of them were in more dire need of the attention while mine was just a routine check up. *sigh*

I had a friend like that. Her brother and sister both had beautiful smiles and not a cavity in their heads. They rarely brushed. The friend, she brushed after every meal and flossed and rinsed....and she ended up with all the cavities.

psst....get a toothbrush with the softest bristles..you don't wanna ruin the enamel.

Sheri said...

Dentists are necessary evil.

Lee said...

I've had that happen before.
It REALLY makes me angry.
Inconsiderate doctors.

I just put Camille on my netflix que. (:

Jessica♥ said...

awee. haha I'm always the one to get cavities too.

Tori_z said...

I've been lucky with the denttist... I've only ever needed small things done, and not very often. And yet, I can't honestly say I brush my teeth as often as I should. I do brush them regularly, but I don't do them as much as the dentists recommend, and I definately don't bother with floss.
