They gave me a prescription for this painkiller called "Vicoprofin", that is this deadly combination of Vicodin & Ibuprofin. H O L Y M O L E Y!! Then I got a prescription for Pennecillin to keep any possible infections at bay. With any luck they will call and I can get these bad boys yanked out after work. I'm not nervous in the least, I've already had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled so I know that it is no big deal. I refuse to spend $900 per tooth on root canals, hell - even sedative fillings are only good for a month or so and there's no guarantee they'll even work... for close to $375? I don't think so!
On the upside, Dr. Largeman & his staff are absolutely fantastic people. They are all so nice it is scary. I've never met personable people in a dentist's office, and these people are fantastic. I walked away with the feeling that they would have fed me lunch and suggested I take a nap before going home. Dr. Largeman listened to everything I said and answered every question I had and smiled and made me feel like I was the most important thing going on in his life the whole time he was in the room with me. I told him that he had an awesome staff before I left.
So all of you cross your fingers that I can get these teeth pulled TODAY. I want this whole experience over with and to get back to eating normally and sleeping a full night without waking up in pain.
At any rate, the wheels are a'turnin', and it will all be over soon I hope!
