Dental blues....

Oh... I been bogged down by a toothache in one of my upper molar,  and have been in and out of my 'atas' dentist clinic  for four times, in a month.The first time he didn't do anything but subscribed medicines to me as there was an infection in my tooth, where some nerves seems got infected. After taken the meds, the pain seems gone but I went back a week later and facing a probable extraction which was diagnosed earlier and that kept me tense for a week. Anyway, I praise God that a filling will do after he took an X-ray and that was great news as I don't have to lose an important tooth. However, he added a root canal is a better treatment for me. The filling seems to be a temporary solution although the pain is gone.  So, after 2 weeks, I decided to go back for the root canal and the days leading up to the treatment was quite tense. Anyway, Praise God again that the procedure was almost painless. However, after the treatment and with the anesthetic wore off, there was some disxomfort and I decided to go back for my final treatment, which is to close up the tooth with permanent fillings. It was really a month of dental blues!! And that 'atas' dentist doesn’t come cheap, though he did a superb job !

Prior to that, after my usual weekly run with my colleagues, we went to Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh for dinner at sports Hub, Singapore.

  1. How much did you have to pay the dentist? I had mine done...free of charge! Ex-student of mine. They say normally it would be 1-2K, a simple filling would be RM80 already.

  8. I had done 4 root canals and appears to beat everyone in this comments setion! Muahahaha
    I had many fillings and root canal done for free as there are several dental universities here that beg the public to allow their final year students to practice on. So I became their guinea pig and they were all very good under strict supervision by foreign lecturers using only the best top notch equipment, materials and facilities! I was surprised that the lecturer used me as their case study for the final year students where he pointed out that I probably had a fall when I was very young and hurt my jaws that resulted my need for root canals. He was accurate as I fell flat on the stairs around 9 years old and hurt my jaws with a broken tooth. That incident had injured the roots of my teeth whereby it took many years to show side effects. What a long grandma story! LOL
