"Oh I Wish I'd Looked After Me Teeth"

Many moons ago Pam Ayres was a real favourite of mine and her ode to not-so-pearly-whites has always stuck in my head.

Well - I have looked after them.... I guess to get to aged 44 with only one filling is a plus these days... but in the last 3 or 4 years they've really started to deteriorate. And I'm absolutely terrified of dentists. Unfortunately I've had 2 teeth break off in the last couple of months and I've had to do something about it. Friday saw me shaking like a shaking thing in the dentist's chair, where I had:-

A scale and polish
6 injections
4 fillings
2 extractions.

My mouth is soooo sore and I'm feeling very un-festive right now. But at least it's done now and I can say that I put my brave girl pants on and went through with it.

Still ruddy hurt tho. And I still cried my eyes out like a big baby when I saw my Mum who'd come to pick me up from my ordeal.

And I still hate dentists.

So there.


  1. Oh Kim, poor you! :( But how lovely that your Mum was there to pick you up afterwards :)

    Hope that you soon heal and the pain goes quickly *H*
