Dentistry

I havent been to a dentist in years. Like i went in around 2003 for a teeth cleaning and needed some work done but no insurance and not alot of spare cash kinda put me off. Before that it was probably 15 years ago.

I've had insurance all year and my teeth have been doing some interesting falling apart in places, several chipped in the front... over the thanksgiving holidays my mom said if i needed some extra $$ to get work done she'd be able and willing to help, and that it'd be a good idea for me to use my insurance as much as possible before this years over then i can continure the work into next year when my insurance resets.

I made an appointment for yesterday with a new dentist (my old one, if you can call someone i havent seen in 15 years, doesn't take metlife dental) and then sunday started getting a tooth ache... it got worse monday, but hey i'm going to the dentist tomorrow....

tuesday comes and my tooth still hurts and my face is starting to swell a bit.. went down and sure enough... abscess infection.... set up an appointment to extract needed teeth, and talk about bridges screwed in teeth and what not and got some anti-biotics and some vicodin...

Its been about 24 hours since i started on the anti-biotics and my face has not decreased in size.. my entire left side is almost 3/4 of an inch "puffier" than it should be and it goes up my nose/inner eye to the eyelid... wow i look like crap and i would think that the amoxicilian should be fighting it by now... oh well at least i'm feeling very little pain, and careing even less...
