Bad Service? You tell me.

With the rash of dental posts here lately I thought I would post this. I think its pretty crappy, but it could just be because I am the one going through it. You tell me.

In November of 2005 I had 3 of my 4 wisdom teeth extracted. They were all impacted, and I was out of it for two+ weeks because they bruised my jaw bones getting those suckers out. Now, I only had 3 removed because I had my back top right molar removed about 5 years ago and my dentist who removed my wisdom teeth told me that the wisdom tooth would come down and replace that tooth. I asked him to remove it anyways, just get them all out and over with and he said "nonono, trust me" ok, I did. 

Well, here it is, a year and a half later and guess what. My remaining wisdom tooth is bony impacted and needs to be removed. I'm a little ticked, needless to say, that I am going to have to go through this crap again. No, it wont be as bad as having them all done at once, but the fact of the matter is, if he had listened to me and removed the damn thing to begin with I wouldnt be in this situation to begin with. So next Tuesday my last one is coming out and I get to look forward to lots of pain-barely dulled by vicodin, and eating soup and mashed potatoes for awhile. 

Granted, the saving grace it that my dentist, otherwise, does fabulous work, and he isnt a nag-you're not flossing enough, you're teeth arent white enough blah blah blah. And at least I know there wont be a "next time", right? *sigh*
