Wrong timing!!!

 I travelled to Seremban to celebrate my father in law's birthday last Saturday during the Hari Raya Haji's long weekend, and it seems a good weekend but a breakfast spoilt everything. I was having a simple breakfast with coffee and bun only but somehow, one of my wisdom tooth seems bit on something hard in the bread. There was no pain yet as I finished my breakfast but that side of the tooth gradually beginning to exhibit some sensitive kind of pain and after a little while, it began to pain. Since we needed to go to Seremban, I got myself some pain killers hoping that it will go away and might be gum problems. However, the pain affected me and I asked my wifey to take over the wheels when we were around Yong Peng.

The toothache started showing its menacing side when I reached Seremban at my in law's place. It got more and more painful and I needed to take two Panadol Actifast to control it. It helps for 2 - 3 hours and it came back. I tried Panadol 650 and its also the same. There were no dentists over the long weekend too. I even woke up in the middle of the night due to the excruciating pain and have to take painkillers in the middle of the night.

Back to JB and I quickly called my dentist and oh man ... he was on leave till Nov. Thus, I gotta go to another clinic which always gave me the shivers somehow.  I guess probably it's due to their ambience or something. Consulted the dentist and it was confirmed it's my wisdom tooth which needed to be extracted. However, the dentist refused to extract yet as the tooth was still painful and instead gave me antibiotics, anti-swollen medications and stronger painkillers. It was a tough three days as I was getting more and more nervous waiting for the procedure on last Saturday. It's been a long while since I had my last extraction and I was really nervous about it. And, well its finally done.

Meanwhile, I discovered a newly open Japanese restaurant at Permas Jaya and decided to try it. I didn't note down the restaurant name.

Ebiko Sushi for my kids

Sake Maki - my favourite sushi. 

Miso Ramen for my wife and little princess

Teriyaki Salmon for my kid

And, Shioyaki salmon bento set for me
The food seems good, and I may visit this restaurant again! And, I have to eat my bento and sushi at one side of my mouth!

  1. Oh dear, poor you! I know what it is like. Many years ago I had problem with my wisdom tooth, left side and right side! They were trying to come out but there is no space already. One side will flare up giving me pain and fever. I can't even open my mouth because it would cause a lot of pain. When one side subside, the other side would flare up. In the end, I had to have them extracted. Hope your extraction goes well and you will recover and be comfortable again!

  7. I cannot imagine the pain considering you have to take the painkiller to soothe the pain.

    Hope it's all good now.

    1. Rose -it wouldn't kill but give you headaches. Actually I have a dentist in my laws house but she can't do anything without the equipments. She asked me to take painkillers.

  12. I know how it feels, Chris. When my second molar tooth was badly infected (around a fortnight after it started aching), I was in such agony that I couldn't sleep at night and broke out in tears due to the pain; resorted to rubbing salt on it and using my fingers to adjust the shaky tooth. I immediately went to have it extracted by my lovely dentist, who said that I had to have it removed asap or the infection will enter the bloodstream and cause more problems (since he knows that I don't fancy painkillers). History was repeated in the form of my last wisdom tooth (had all four removed in two periods), but the pain wasn't as severe. =)

    Anyways, am glad that you're free from the excruciating pain. Hope you recover soonest possible!
