Please think of me as I go in for my dental appt. next Tuesday. I've had a lot of anxiety over it, 2 nights poor sleep, and so nauseas I haven't eaten much (which has led to a detox and more weakness!)
One of my concerns going raw was that I would become so sensitive, that what would I do if I needed hospitalization--how would I react to the meds? So on a smaller scale, I am a bit concerned about getting sick from the novacaine. I am also worried because we don't know exactly what is happening, he couldn't tell from the X-ray if the cavity is bad enough for a root canal because it's so close. But I told him if that's the case, pull the tooth. So there is a chance that I will be losing the tooth. He also said there is a different technique he could TRY which would not result in a lost tooth. But experimentation makes me nervous too. I have also worried myself as I do research because apparently dentists can mess up and actually make things worse or set the stage for future problems.
Please pray for my dentist to be wise and do a good job, for me to have peace, and for the cavity to be small enough for a filling!! Thank you for keeping me in mind.
p.s. Take better care of your teeth than I did, LOL!
