Ex-teefs!

Ex-teefs!

Ouch. Ouch bloody fucking ouch. It doesn’t really describe the pain I’m in, though. It’s more like “moan, moooan, moan, sob, gurgle” instead of a simple, ditzy “ouch”. The dull throbbing accompanied by the taste of pus and stuff flowing from the two gaping holes in my jaw where my pearly whites used to be. For today, you see, I had my wisdom teeth pulled. Not all 4 of them, because 2 were pulled about 6 years ago, but the right hand pair. The bottom one started getting inflamed under the gums, and eroding the jaw bone somehow (they pointed it out to me on the x-rays, so I believed them) so my dentist advised me to schedule an appointment with the surgeon, which I did, albeit with some trepidation. I’ve been having a lot of dental work done lately, some new fillings, old ones replaces, plaque cleaned etc. I’ve started with a dental clinic called StarDent, but they turned out to be complete fuckups, couldn’t even clean dental plaque and calculus properly, and I’ve had to change the fillings they installed (read: botched). So, once more, for Google, StarDent is bad. StarDent sucks donkey cock. Well, at least the one located at Hämeentie does. I now go to a much better place called Hammax, and it’s great. They replaced the fuckup StarDent fillings, cleaned up my teeth good and proper, stopped the gums bleeding and made everything just peachy. They might even correct my vampire fangs…

But anyway, the procedure itself was really quick and almost painless. I arrived half an hour early to have a drug called “Dormicum” that would help with the pain and the stress, but it didn’t do anything other than give me trembling and weak arms. I brought my netbook along, and watched some “Team America: World Police” while waiting for my appointment and the drug to kick in, so at least wasn’t bored. Then the surgeon called me in, pumped my gums full of lidocaine, and we waited some more for the stuff to kick in. Actually, the injection of lidocaine was the most painful part of the procedure. They then covered my face with a sterilized green cloth with a hole for my mouth only, kinda like in medical serials, and poked at my gaping orifice with some glinty implements. Before I knew it my wisdom teeth were out, just like that, no pain or anything. I wanted to take some pictures of the implements and the gory teeth, but my camera ran out of juice… Shoulda checked it the evening before, moron. But anyway, I then sat at the reception area for an hour, being monitored for possible symptoms of, I dunno, sudden death or something, and read magazines, all befuddled and too doped up to make use of my netbook. My girlfriend came to pick me up, since they wouldn’t let me walk off alone, and that was that. Oh, and I now get two days off work to enjoy my sore jaw! Yay!

Ok, let me get some more ice for my cheek and we’ll start with the links. First, enjoy a nice little time-waster called Demolition City. Then watch this pretty nifty 3D animated mini-documantary on the Berlin Wall.

Oh, and since I was unable to provide you with any truly gross footage of my own, here’s some graphic imagery of wisdom teeth extraction! Enjoy!
