Bad tooth


I've been having really bad toothache since last Thursday. My band had to record our EP in the studio during the last weekend and I had to pop pills like crazy to get by. I went to the dentist and for sure, I need a root canal (I have never had one before) and they schedule me for this Friday morning. I so wish they could get me in sooner but guess I have to wait...

PS: One tip from my friend's mom who is a dental hygienist about pain killer: she told me to alternate Advil and Tylenol because if I keep taking one then it loses its power pretty fast.

Note: My dentist just called me and told me they can see me tomorrow morning... I will let you know how it goes... urrrr.

Hope your dentist appointment goes well and that you'll recover quickly so that you can get back to normal life!
(I had no idea you were in a band - hope recording for the EP is going well too!)

Sorry for you but the picture became good - would be fine in a dentist clinic…

Good luck with the root canal! I had one before, and actually laughed my way through it. Too much laughing gas, I guess. The dentist in the next room was telling a patient that her teeth were going to fall out if she didn't take better care of them - for some reason that sounded hilarious at the time and I couldn't stop laughing! My dentist had to stop what he was doing until I composed myself. I was in tears, I was laughing so hard. (I had to make them turn down the gas. I guess I'm a lightweight!) See, sometimes even a painful toothache can be a good memory in the end. :) I hope you enjoy a good laugh too.

Don't want to come across as insensitive, I know toothaches suck but... I love your crying tooth! (I'm thinking a t-shirt with this printed on it would rock)

*I hope you feel better soon*

Tooth problems is really the worst! I had some trouble a few weeks ago, made a drawing about my pain during the night that you can see here: http://www.jojofalk.se/blog/?p=255
