Effing dentists - decided I would save a bit of money and do a DIY job.

I would have posted the pic, but some presbyterians might get offended and start whingeing at the mods. You have been warned.

My dentist did say that it would probably need to come out the next time I was due. But he is a butcher from Poland (or so he sais he is). I reckon he's a left over from WW2 the evil [email protected]@rd. I should have guessed when he said "Zis rotten swine will haft to be eliminated mit cheapest anistetik you horribel britisk man"
God, the relief - I stomped round my training run tonight.

    that looks like an elephants foot.
    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    Out of interest, how did you get it out ? String round the door handle or a good set of Pliers ?

    Never mind that. What did you use as a painkiller and more important, have you got any left?

    None of the above. I am immuno compromised after a bone marrow transplant. So very susceptible to infections. Yes, its a wisdom tooth - they're useless bloody things anyway. I clean my teeth 3 times a day and use Chlorahexadine mouth wash. If you look carefully, its been filled but the bone was compromised after a systemic bone infection which actually lead to a 3rd hip-replacement.
    Lets just say this is the ugly side of the coin of immuno supression/bone marrow transplants.
    Pain killers: 2 x CoCodamol and 2 x Ibruprofen. No pliers, no string and door knobs. It had been loose for donkeys yonks and after the last extraction (hours of bleeding and a trip to A and E) done by the Nazi Dentist from Hell, I teased it out gently myself, very little bleed and not painful by my standards. I am on anti-biotics anyway.

    Respect... I've got to go tomorrow for a filling and I'm bricking myself. :( Give me broken bones, dislocations... no worries. Anything to do with eyes and teeth, and I'm a wussy of the highest order!

    +1. What is about eyes, teeth and nails, is it the old movies and torture? You're a braver man than I.

    Oooh I bet that you feel better for getting that censored out. My most recent foray to a dentist cost me over £2k due to need for a root canal - now that was pleasant :(

    Have to agree that busting a bone seems more desirable than having a dentist drill holes in your gob and then slap some polyfilla in the hole.

    What do I ride? Now that's an Enigma!
