HNT - The Naked Tooth

I thought it would be prudent to theme this week's post around the root canal I had on Wednesday. While I'd initially been leary about having a large hole drilled in my tooth, the pulp sucked out and re-filled, Dr Wang and her hygenist Danny made the experience not only painless, but actually quite pleasant and fun with their amusing conversation.

While I didn't succeed in getting an "after" shot, I did get a copy of the "before" X-Ray of my tooth.


What you're seeing is a shot of "tooth 47" (second from the left). It has a small (white blob) filling in it at the top. The decay that needed to be treated is to the right of that and directly across from the giant filling in the tooth beside it (that giant white blob)

It's too bad I don't have a copy of the "after" shot showing the artificial filling that has replaced the pulp in the three roots, because it's pretty neat.

Oh well.

Happy HNT!

MamaKBear said...

You used the words "painless, pleasant and fun" when referring to going to the dentist?!?! SO not how I'd describe the times I've been.

HappY HNT! :)

Ryan Oakley said...

That reminds me - I need to go the dentist to get a gold tooth. A few years ago I was kicked rather hard in the face by lowly street thugs and one of my teeth just hasn't been the same since.

Glad it went well. I think that my dentist is positively medievial in his technique. I had a root canal and it hurt like hell. HHNT

Flygirl said...

What did your dentist think of you taking pictures?

Tess said...

Flygirl has a point. He must have thought it an odd request but I'm glad you got it.

Glad your pain is over.

Happy HNT!

my first reaction was eeeeewwwwwwww/cringe. but you know what? last year at this time I was in your shoes, and it didn't turn out all that bad. my morbid fear of the dentist was something I made far worse than it had to be...glad it's over for you, though~

HHNT!

Binsk said...

I think this is the FIRST xray I've seen on HNT. Very cool.

Thanks for the birthday wishes by the way. :)

HHNT, I'm glad all went well!

Mark Leslie said...

In answer to Flygirl's question - I got the x-ray because I brought the hard copy of the x-ray from my dentist to the surgeon's office, so I had a chance to scan it.

I asked the surgeon if I could get a copy of the "after" x-ray ($80 after all), and she agreed, but we all forgot once it was time to settle up the total bill (which hurt more than the root canal)

Happy HNT everyone - thanks so much for your comments and greetings!

"To tell the tooth."
"The tooth hurts doesn't it?"
"The tooth will set you free."

Oh, I could just go on with these all day. And that's a very scary thought isn't it?

Oh well, Happy HNT to you and your tooth!

Still Searching... said...

Heh, heh, never seen an HNT like that one before! And a happy one to you!
