Max with dentist, moms

Hello and welcome back to the wonderful dental world of the Dogpound.    A few weeks ago I wrote about my experience with my dentist and the impression he tried to take of my back teeth.  Well, in about the same time frame I had to go to another dentist to have a root canal done.  I had a cap put in some months ago but it never felt just right and it was decided that I needed to have the root removed.  Now this involved putting a big plastic dam around my mouth to keep the antiseptic from getting into my throat.  I really did not like that feeling and had to get up and have the plastic and clamps removed from my mouth.  Not as bad as my previous experience with the pink gunk but still not a good start with someone standing there with a drill in their hands.  Anyway, I finally settled down and with some effort I got through the first round.  Yes, the first round, I had to come back for them to finish their construction job.  Fortunately the dentist took pity on me…or maybe she was just being self-serving… she gave me a prescription for some valium.  Now I must tell you that is just like a wonder drug.  I took a pill about 30 minutes before they started in again on me and I had zero problems.  I got right in the chair…they put that dam protection in my mouth…worked on me for about an hour…and I could have cared less.  I was not out of it..loopy like or anything…but any concerns or tension was completely buried and from now on that is going to be my request for all future dental work.  At this point I would be remiss not to mention Mother’s Day.  A tip of the hat to all of those great mothers out there that put up with us and who at times we probably made them wish they could have had a valium or two to put up with all of our crazy antics.  Got to love them!
