It’s been exactly one week since I got my temporary crown. Every night around nine o’clock, it starts hurting.
I’m still not chewing on that side of my mouth, so I don’t know why it still hurts. Is this normal? Or should I expect to have what’s left of my molar amputated? Or am I going to die of sepsis?
I need to be held. Also, I need some hillbilly heroin and a good porn.
Did it hurt right after you had the crown put on? I don’t know what’s normal with these things, but be sure to tell the dentist when you go back!!!
Yes it did! They told me to expect some pain though, but Kim said that hers didn’t hurt at all and that I must be dying.
I think it may be normal to hurt for a couple of weeks from the trauma, and maybe experience shooting pains the dentists call “zingers”. I’ve had my real crown for three months and I still won’t chew on that side of my mouth because it feels fuckin weird. I think I need to have it readjusted… lowered or something.
OK, that makes me feel better. I mean, not that I’m happy you’re in the same boat, but at least now I know it’s normal.
I keep reminding myself that it could be so much worse and I could not have a tooth at all, but UGHUGHUGH I want to forget about this damn thing!
Know what’s funny about that? I have a tooth on the other side of my mouth that used to have a crown, but it came off a few years ago and I never had it put back. I chew on the “tooth stump” just fine. It’s much more comfortable than the crown ever was.
i can prob find porn and heroin.
i have high standards when it comes to porn. ask henry!!
nothing post-1980s. if a story is involved, it better be sick as hell. please, no women that look like tim curry.
i really liked the one about clowns that my friend bill gifted to me last summer.
Yikes, that sounds like absolute crap! I just had all four of my wisdom teeth removed – over Easter – so I can empathise with the whole eating dilemma. Fortunately, I didn’t have much of an appetite, and mostly ate yogurt, anything mashed, and ice cream (which wasn’t all bad!)
Good luck to you! Hope it all goes well.
Just a girl
