Another cavity

We had a visit to the dentist today, and my fear of having cracked a tooth has been confirmed.
Actually, a bit has broken off and I have a cavity, so that will be filled next month.
Hubby got away with a quick file down of rough edges, descale and polish, so he is all smiles.
No problem. I’m coming out in sympathy with Maggie, though at the moment I don’t actually have toothache.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The dreaded dentist visit! 😱

  2. Hopefully you don’t get toothache.

    Dentists are no fun

    • My guy is very good and doesn’t hurt me. I get the swab on the gum before he even shows it the needle and if I feel the slightest twinge, I get another shot.

    That is frustrating, but hopefully you are not in pain?
    I have a dentist appointment tomorrow!

    • Good luck tomorrow. Maggie is having hers seen to as well. I’m not in any pain though.

        Thank you 🙂 No fillings, two X-Rays and £55 later . . .
        I hope it went well for Maggie. They anaesthetise the dogs here to clean their teeth – costs a lot!

      • Likewise, though the last one she had was done as part of the process for removing the first lump.
        Seems it’s not her tooth so she still has it. Face swollen like she’s swallowed a golf ball and we’re waiting for the result of the liquid removed from the cyst they found.

      • scifihammy says:

        Aw poor Maggie. I hope the swelling goes down quickly and she can feel more comfortable. 🙂

      • Thanks Sci. It’s hard to tell today, but hopefully tomorrow we’ll see a change.

    Bummer! I had a redo (root canal) of an old filling because the dentist was worried it would all collapse soon. Set me back $1000 in February. Eeks.

    • Holy shit!
      I have a crown that is over 30 years old, and although there is no infection, it’s not loose and isn’t bothering me, the Xray showed that the root canal wasn’t completely done. This is three teeth up from the one with the cavity. He said if it does start to play up it would be a case of removing the crown and pegs holding it together, redoing the root canal, repegging and re-crowning. ‘Nah, just take it out’ I said. ‘Or’, he continued, ‘we could take it out’. I like my dentist!

    Not many teeth left now, so visits to the dentist are becoming more pleasant, I am pleased to say…
