You just have more fun than is humanly possible in your every endevour. I'm so proud of you. *sniff*


I'm too much of a ninny to ask for nitrous. I'm afraid the dentist will be annoyed, and I don't want to annoy someone who's doing scary things to my mouth, even though it's so awesome and makes a big difference. The last time I had it, I kept thinking about how the little rubber wedge they put in my mouth to help me hold my jaw open would be useful as a marital aid; I couldn't stop giggling, especially when the cute young male dentist asked me what was so funny. So maybe I'm better off without it.

I've never gotten nitrous. I don't understand what it's really for. The shot is so you don't feel anything, what's the gas for? Is it for people who are so afraid of the dentist that even though they're not feeling pain they're still freakin?


I just found your blog today, and not a moment too soon. I have spent the entire day putting temporary filling replacement in this tooth of mine that has lost its real filling, and is now slowly chopping my tongue into ground meat. When I wasn't doing that, I was calling sedation dentists. They actually administer IV and PUT YOU TO SLEEP!

Unfortunately I can't afford it, but if you can, run, do not walk, to your nearest search engine and find ye one.


I've been putting off going to the dentist for a crown now for years. Nitrous, you say? Hmmmm.....

HAHA, I love Friend #3's comment. That's the sign of a true friend right there. So what happens when you get a different song stuck in a different tooth? Will it be like that awful land between radio stations where both are trying to play at once but all you really get is a static-filled blend of horribleness?


sue - Pain is not the same as fun, Sue.
Tracy27 - Why would the rubber wedge be useful - oooooh. Oh, you are right it WOULD.
Amy in StL - "Is it for people who are so afraid of the dentist that even though they're not feeling pain they're still freakin?" YES. Because any second that drill could slip and there would be a smoking hole in your cheek.
Candy - Hi Candy! Ah, but they sedate you with Versed. Versed is creepy. Such as my experience: http://mocklog.typepad.com/queen_mediocretia/2005/03/i_go_insane_par.html
Jhianna - Happy de-lurking to you too!! Except I don't consider you a lurker.
Friend #3 - Cow.
Rachelskirts - Ew! Now I can't listen to music at all because there might be dissonance.


Nitrous is the best. It makes having that junk done to your teeth *slightly* tolerable.


Actually, I wish they gave nitrous at the gynecologist too.


That would be excellent.
