I HATE THE DENTIST! Actually I am terrified of the dentist. I always have been, I am not really sure why. I have never had a bad dentist nor anything out of the ordinary happen to me while I am at the dentist. I am just terrified of going. You would think after all I went through in January I would be over my fear by now. Anyways, around last Thursday I noticed something sharp poking out of my gums on either side near the back in the bottom. It hasn't gotten any better and my tongue on the left side is taking a little bit of a beating. I am assuming it is either a couple of pieces of tooth that somehow eluded being removed from my mouth when they were pulled OR it is fragments of bone. Either way, it sucks. I am not sure how they fix this, probably either filing it down or pulling it off. Have I mentioned I am terrified of the dentist?????

So here we go again...I am off to the dentist within the hour. Keeping my fingers crossed that novacaine won't be necessary. Wish me luck!!

I had to get 2 root canals and then a few years later I had to get both of those teeth removed. It took a long time for the gap to heal and I felt some of the same thing - bones sticking out of my gums. After a while, the gums grew over the bones and it was fine. It's still really hard to eat though.
I need to make a dentist appointment too. I haven't seen one in about 2 years now.
