Note to self: when the dentist tells you “You’re going to feel some pressure.” what she really means is “It’s going to hurt like hell.”
I think I’d have more respect for them if they were honest. “Brace yourself, this is gonna hurt.” At least then I wouldn’t be surprised by the jolt of pain.
The end result is the same, though. Me awake late into the night with my jaws sore, my tooth throbbing, and not sleepy at all.
I get to go back in two weeks to do it all again. Joy.
