my teeth didn't want to leave me  
especially the bottom tooth. hung on for dear life, he did, with his little hooked feet. in the end, doc had to saw him into a few pieces and wrench him out. :s



top tooth came out a little more willingly, but not without considerable persuasion either. i thought my jaw was gonna crack from all the force doc was using to coax him.

i asked to take them home with me, and they were popped into a little ziplock baggie with bits of my gums still attached. i never knew how stubbornly gums clung to teeth until now - it was a bitch to scrub them clean! i literally had to yank off the gum bits. felt a little wrong to be man-handling my own flesh which wasn't even attached to me. i also saw for myself that i lost a lot of gums today. :(

man, my teeth are huge! how does such a small person grow such big teeth?

and when will the bleeding bloody well stop?

very ouch.

i contemplated for a split second. :) but i realised not everyone would feel affection for my evicted teeth as i do and would be much less tolerant towards them with blood.
senprojectsen on August 1st, 2006 03:59 pm (UTC)
do you sleep with them under your pillow? and no, i WILL NOT play the tooth fairy - it's too expensive to fly back and forth. and besides, there are no gifts for teefs that look like candy-corn!

EW EW EW!!

btw.. may i know how much does it cost to extract one tooth?
JVdrag0nette on August 4th, 2006 10:28 am (UTC)
the total bill was S$399, for one extraction and one operation.

i think the operation part itself is S$240?
sticker mansilver_crv on August 4th, 2006 10:30 am (UTC)
that sounds quite cheap...i have heard of S$600 per tooth!
JVdrag0nette on August 4th, 2006 10:33 am (UTC)
yeh i know! it's insane...

i like my dentist. :) he's very confident. i need to feel safe with a doc. i can't handle it if i think they don't know what they're doing...
sticker mansilver_crv on August 4th, 2006 10:37 am (UTC)
so it was done in the dentist clinic...
JVdrag0nette on August 4th, 2006 10:52 am (UTC)
