• Had three wisdom teeth out under local at various times with various degrees of difficulty, worst was dentist having to climb on top of me and straddle me to get more leverage

    Got issues now with a molar (which was done as an emergency and involved the little dentist with pliers pulling with both hands while the nurse pulled my head back in the seat so they could get more leverage) they pulled out and in the process seems they have damaged the sinus, got referred to a maxfax consultant yesterday to try and fix it. Had tooth ache for six months now and its upto 12 weeks for referral, fun!

    This is the kind of bullshit I need to avoid. If they can't pull the fuckers out, get the fucking drill out or something, don't just smash my face in so I need more fucking surgery!

  • Yeh it's not great but for context, having the "tooth ache" I have is no worse than tendonitis in my knees or ropey hip, just a fairly constant low level ache. Which creates its own problems as the reception staff always want to screen me out with their questions on the phone as it isn't debilitating pain so therefore non-urgent.
