Toothache and More Aches

I woke up so early today heading to my Dentist’s office. Just when I thought I’m almost done with my invisalign when I got an infection, grrrr. Bummer! I haven’t done anything on weekend and work just piled up one after the other. The last time I remembered having a toothache was in Taiwan. I decided to have 3 of the lower molars be pulled out. The Dentist (Taiwanese) happened to be not an English fluent and so communication was just so hard. I thought that will solve the aching problems for years. It apparently not- as it opened up another problem. With the lower teeth missing, all the teeth on the upper part went down and there were some movements on some other teeth too. Basically, the missing teeth should be replaced. After realizing all that,(with my husband’s suggestion) it was all fixed with the bridge. Unfortunately, the lady Dentist (Philippines) didn’t do a good job on that. She probably thinks it’s alright or who would have thought somebody (a middle class) can afford to spend money on a teeth problem. Well, we thought we have saved money on that problem only to find out she just did a short term solution. It was some kind of disappointing because I put through all those pains from injections (maybe 8 in all in one day) and still my new Dentist suggested that it’d be removed and replaced. Now, I’m having an infection and I really can’t get away with root canal. Hopefully, it will be fine and I trust the Laser Dentistry. Well, here's the remembrance of that, it might be a little disgusting to see:

I sincerely hope that it will all get better soon. Toothache can be very unbearable. Not only that, it can affect other areas in life too. God bless!

Ay, I feel your pain with the toothaches. I had one so bad I couldn't go to work some months ago.
People don't realize how much hell toothaches can be!
Hope you find the solution to that really soon. I used to just live on painkillers through that time.
Hope you have something that you're taking for the pains.

thanks guys for the concern:) I'm fine now...I had taken shots and antibiotic... good thing to have your dentist live right next door, lol! he came to the house to give me antibiotic to calm it down and hopefully, the swollen nerve will calm by Thursday for the root canal...
it was just a little bit dragging the past 2 days from the pain reliever, I was always sleepy and nauseous and I thought it's not gonna end, hahaha! I don't get sick often and guess, I don't have tolerance for that...

i'd rather choose sprain and muscle pains that toothache...

"painiest" pain!! feels like somebody's chiselling your mouth!

FYI... Filipino (Pinay) dentists are cute!
