    Whine Dentists

    Just came from the dentists need 4 teeth out, crown, root canal work and fillings.

    Yes I'm petrified of them and the last time I went was in 2009 but I'm in so much pain I had to go and the above was the verdict.

    Anyway, I was in the chair for a full 1hr for root canal work and a filling, my right side of my face cheekbone is killing me know and my right side of my face is blown up like a balloon.

    She gave me antibiotics to take said I had a abscess ete etc.

    God I hate them with a vengeance.

    Hey,

    Let's hope they did all they needed to do on the first attempt for the root canal. The wife had to go back 4 times for one she had!
    She promptly changed dentists and the new dentist has managed to do another one on the first attempt.

    Fortunately we have Bupa Cover otherwise it would be very very expensive!

    I love and respect Dentists so much that I avoid them as much as possible so they can deal with patients who really need work doing ..... I will always find someone that does ..... no point me wasting their time with fillings and extractions...

    Did you get a sticker for being a brave boy?

    If you go every 6 months they usually spot shit before it gets too bad, having said that I'm as bad if not worse that most lol. Only reason I went after my trip to Croatia was coz I was in freakin agony which started on the fecking plane out

    Having not been for about 5 years and knowing a filling came out of the tooth in question about 3 years ago it was always gonna be messy and indeed it was a 4 visit root treatment, the tooth directly below needed a small filling due to the filling that came out damaging it but somehow managed this with no jab!

    I do brush pretty regularly but for £20 just get'em check regularly and have small fillings instead of root fillings

    If it's any consolation, I'm also in dental agony at the moment.
    Went to the dentist for the first time in about 10 years last Spetember, needed 5 fillings and a root canal.
    Got the standard fillings done and out of the way and went in for the root canal the week before Christmas. She said after looking at the xray the tooth probably wasn't suitable for root canal so would have to come out.
    They attempted to remove it on Friday, she was tugging and swinging on it for about 45 minutes before the tooth snapped off leaving the roots in place. I now have to have the roots surgically removed at the dental hospital.
    Fucking teeth!

    Tell me bud I've had a dislike of dentists since I was little hence the reason I'll only go when I need to go.

    But wish I had a crystal ball and went years ago on a regular basis and hopefully would of saved me all this pain

    Same here. The fillings don't bother me but the extracted one is another story. I broke my tooth ages ago and just left it because it wasn't giving me any jip. If I'd gone in then they could have filled it/done a root canal but due to neglect it's now gone. And painful.

    Well woke up expecting the swelling to go down, like fuck the side of my face is bigger than yesterday.

    Plus the area is numb.

    Sure the polish dentist bitch did summit wrong taking painkillers and antibiotics.

    The main problem with dentists is that they are so friggin expensive and that puts people off going. Things then get so bad that most then have a bad experience when they do finally go.

    Don't think I've ever had a bad experience in the chair.

    Feel for you mate, cracked one of my back ones a while back and for the last few days it's been throbbing like made.

    Went in this morning he said it needs to come out. Four injection later i "can still feel the can you feel this prod"

    After a lot of shall we do this i said fuck rip it out. He as pulling so hard the nurse had to hold my shoulders. The fucker snapped of and the root is till there. Oh and i have an infection. If it doesn't heal you might need to go the hospital so they can cut the gum away and pull the root out

    £12 a month Bupa Platinum cover through work. Covers the whole family and has saved us thousands over the last 3 years.
    I say saved thousands, if I never had the cover then we both probably would not goto the Dentist..

    Yep, sounds exactly like mine. Went in today as a follow up and was given metronidazole and co-codomol.
    The head honcho was all for taking the roots out this morning but I said fuck that I'd rather wait until the infection went down.

    I have dental cover via my works but I presume they don't cover current problems and might say blah blah is not covers cos it happened before the insurance was taken out.

    Who is it with? I cannot see why not.

    What you do need them to do at times is itemise the works. For example the wife had a root canal and filling. They billed it all as one under the root canal and that would have resulted in her losing cash. However she asked the dentist to itemise it properly and she got it all back.

    If you have the work done when you have cover then it should not be a problem.

    Cost me a monkey including the gold crown, my own fault it would have been a filling 3 years ago. Considering that's all Ive spent I the last 5-6 years or more it's probably not so bad and reminded me not to let it slip

    However....fuck flossing lol

    Hate the dentist ever since experiences with the local one when young, things like he'd give the injection then be drilling in under a minute, he drilled through the side of my mates tooth by accident etc.
