I am such a chicken!


Today I had to go to the dentist to have a cavity filled. Now, the last time I had a cavity I think I was around seven years old. I haven't had one since. Plus I had a bad experience with a dentist as a child, so that all played a factor today. My nerves started to get the better of me. (They probably thought I was the biggest chicken!) :o) But the Lord helped my nerves to calm down. I went ahead an opted to have a shot of Nov@caine and I am glad I did, but at least if I get one again I will know what to expect. But you can make sure I am brushing more than I did before to try and prevent having to have that done again. :D So...now I can relax. Hubby is up for his appointment next. ;o)

I'm glad for you, darling. I don't know if I told you that the time before last when I got one of my teeth pulled, I was such a mess I cried in the chair and everyone was wringing their hands wondering what to do with me. LOL! You did just fine. Keep brushing! :-D

Did they think you were funny taking their picture that way?

I HATE the dentist. I only go when I have to.

Good for you, Melanie! I have been having some dental work done and I understand about the nerves. I held the assistant's hand while I got my needle...LOL
Hugs,

I guess I should have said that I didn't take that picture. It is from allposters.com

I don't like going to the dentist either. I have never had a cavity so I don't know what thats like but I do remember having my wisdom teeth pulled and that was enough to make me not want to go back.

I'm the same way. I've had two bad experiences. I've seen the dentist once in 6 years. If I do have a cavity and its a small one, I usually opt for having it filled without novacaine because I'm a big chicken with needles.
