Attack of the Nachos (UPDATED!)

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

You never thought nachos were the predator-type, did you? You just think they are a tasty pile of chips and toppings.

Well, apparently they do have a mean streak and had it out for a chunk of one of my MOLARS. Yes, you are correct. After finishing dinner last night, I felt something rough "in" my tooth, so I went about trying to free it, and when I couldn't and looked in the mirror for help, I saw that some of my tooth was gone!


I guess a benign way of putting it is that I "chipped a tooth" which sounds way more playful and normal than "my tooth broke" or "a chunk of my molar fell off" which sounds like it only happens to people of backwoods status. (I say that with a glut of hilarity, as we totally live in the middle of nowhere farm country!!)

I called my dentist this morning just to see when they opened, and what do you know, the dentist himself answered the phone at 7am. I told him I don't want novocaine or xrays on the account of being pregnant, and he seemed totally agreeable to that and suggested I come in at 10am today and they will see what they can do. (It doesn't hurt, luckily, so I am not feeling any huge rush, but I know it is important that it's looked at.)

This is the dentist we went to at the end of November whose nurse said that kids would come soon enough. Maybe she should get in the business of fortune telling....

UPDATE! Guess what, it was just an old filling that fell out!! WHEWWWWWW!!! Cue major sigh of relief. He said there is no decay so he put some sealant on top, and said it will be fine for now, but eventually I might have to get a crown for it. I'll take it! I was in and out of his office in 20 minutes. Love this dentist!!! Thank you for all your support!

I hope it gets fixed quickly and painlessly. My husband chipped off most of his front tooth last year over Easter after eating bacon. It was hilarious but he was furious no one would see him Easter Sunday to fix it, lol. He looked like such a hillbilly it was awesome! Thanfully yours is in the back=)

Oh yucky!!! I hate going to the dentist even worse than going to the OB! I might change the order of dread if the OB started using drills. Haha. Hope it's quick and painless... And I was just craving nachos too. :) Seriously I was debating about going to 7-11 and getting a big slurpee and nasty nachos. I guess I'd better reconsider. ;)Although the slurpee is still tempting me...

YAY!!! So glad it was just a filling.

That is great news that it was just a filling. I would have freaked out as well!
