Sad News

I have something very sad to report. I am afraid that my pristine, cavity free mouth may be no more. And I'm kind of sort of freaking out about it. Remember how I fear having my teeth rot and fall out of my head? I've been having what I suppose is a toothache (I really don't know what to call it, I've never had a cavity) for about 2 months. I haven't had the hot and cold sensitivity some get, nor has it been necessarily aching. It just hurts when I bite down on the bottom left side of my mouth and my gums have been feeling swollen. A couple of days ago, I looked in my mouth and found a disgusting pus spot. I did an extensive 2 minute online search and found that a pus spot is an indicator of an abscessing tooth. I screamed like Macaulay Culkin when I read that. Not only do I maybe have a cavity, I may need a root canal to take care of the problem. I called a dentist this morning and have an appointment at 3:30 to check this out. OK, I lied. I'm really freaking out. I hope all goes well.

I am sorry!! I know how much this freaks you out!! Maybe you just have an absessed cankor on your gum or something?! I hope it is something like that!!

Oh that is the worst! Good luck, I hope everything goes well.
I, myself, avoid the dentist as much as possible. But I certainly don't have a cavity-free mouth. I've had plenty of fillings over the years.

I'm so sorry! I have been avoiding the dentist for the last year and a half, and your post freaks me out and reminds me that I have to schedule an appointment! Good luck Christa!

Ouch! Here's hoping it's nothing much.

Don't get pregnant!!!!!

And I highly doubt you need a root canal. I can't even say how many cavities I've had, but I know I have at least one on the right side of my mouth because everytime I eat something sweet, it hurts. And I've never needed a root canal.

I have three cavities, and I need to get them fixed, but I don't have dental insurance! Boooo!

Just keep in mind that all roads from WebMD lead to the worst-case scenario. According to WebMD, I should have had cancer or worse every time I get sick. Hopefully, it won't be as bad as you think...and if it is...well, you sound pretty prepared ;).

I got a root canal, and it was one of the weirdest experiences...when they shave off your WHOLE tooth, then dig in and kill it...yah, I wasn't really prepared for what that entailed. I don't think I really needed it, but I think the dentist was fairly new and needed some high paying customers. Dumb. I've been upset about it ever since I got it.

If it makes you feel better the root of my front tooth is disintegrating for some reason and it has to come out. One of my worst fears. :S
