While my memory is still vivid n clear, lemme share with u my experience on wisdom tooth extraction,
like freaking 2 days ago.
I'm a wuss when coming to extraction, I had a round of bawling even before I lie down on that theater chair.
Whenever I'm facing such 'crisis', as proclaimed by non other than yours truly, anxiety strikes me like plague. I'll b feeling anxious the day before resulting in loss of sleep, fatigue & e verge of crying.
c I told u I'm a complete wimp, I should b named wimpichin instead.
But nonetheless, I went ahead N extracted the remaining 3 wisdom tooth.
Oh u might b wondering where's the last one?
Here u go...
This macho-mary was extracted like 4 yrs ago?
The results.... traumatizing.
why the hell Macho-mary eh?
This tooth, bigger and stronger than the rest, Constantly gymming frm underground.
Its weightlifting segment granted me loads of throbbing headaches from time to time, yet refusing to sprout from the gums n challenge me.
I visited several dentist, hoping I could somehow get rid of the agony by eliminating the extraction but all of them shook their heads like diagnosing the remaining days of a cancer patient.
So...I pulled up my fucking socks, bra, clothes, headband & whatever is needed & battle it out with that extraction. Like what I've mentioned earlier, I cried a round of mother earth and back before I head to the clinic.
the dentist was terrible....
He was in a huuuuuuuuge rush, he simply extracted me like an adolescence yanking open a stuck jar tin with a screw driver.
To make things worse...he didn't blind my eyes & the moment I open them, I saw this huge fishhook shaped needle sewing up the necessary.
Well... the rest of the night, my dad had to come & picked me up coz I was blacking out from time to time.
Agonizing isn't it?
WELL.... I thought this time round I'll face the same traumatic experience.
Somemore this time I have to extract 3 tooth at one go, I felt like I'm digging my own grave.
So storming with the same protocol, I burst in tears... blah blah... the same old story before I get to the operation couch.
Somehow it was a little different, the dentist wasn't in a rush But he wasted no time in getting the tooth out.
The staff are all v encouraging, they held my hand like no tomorrow.
I was squeezing this particular lady-Farrah hands so tightly, think I might've broken her joints. She wasn't the key-person in the operation room but still she stayed on, hold on to me & even accompanied me to the loo. Oh, but no she didn't pee on my behalf.
Ant then there is this chirpy lady, sorry didn't get her name seriously, she hop around the place like a bunny & by being sucha sweetheart she really lifted my mood for a bit.
Ok n how for the key person Dr Aidan Yeo, he's like a nomadic dentist & one of the no doubt best surgeons around. Google his name & u'll c infos of him plastered all over the net.
I told him I heard of his fame & he claims he's a lil pressurize...so funny right?
I'm even more pressurize, my mouth is being work on!
Ignore the machomary on the left & This r the tooth that got worked on.
Before he started his engine going... he posted a question: " so do u have any medical problems ?"
I immediately answered : " No doc, I dun have heart attack"
Everyone burst into laughter.
well... that was the first thing that comes to my mind. Like how they warn u on heart issues riding a roller coaster or something.
haha but never mind.
Here comes the pain.
The anesthetic shots was painful. no doubt.
I gagged & teared.
And so, he told everyone to gimme a few mins while the numbing takes place, But I think he secretly went for toilet break.
So When he got back, he started fixing me like a clockwork.
Pressure & stress definitely did not leave me throughout the whole ordeal but what makes a difference is, I had my earphones plugged, my eyes binded, my hands held & sweet echoing voices of Dr Yeo. Wee~
Ok at one time, when they are extracting my upper wisdom, it seemed that the whole clinic are placing their hands on my head & firm me into position.
To reminisce that phrase, is so funny I tell ya...
but at that point in time... NO.
Good riddance to these little devils.
One broke into half, I think Dr yeo mini chainsaw that tooth to get it out.
So after the surgery, feeling slightly low coz I can't talk & eat & Kept swallowing blood...
