Spent three hours at the dentist, getting molds taken and having my problematic molars drilled. Now I’ve got on two temporary crowns.
She gave me two doses of anesthetic on the left, and three on the right. (I have a great dentist. She starts off slowly, frequently asking how I’m doing—at the first flinch she stopped and got more Novacaine.)
On the way home I stopped for ibuprofen for when the happy juice wears off. For now, though, I can’t feel anything at all in my lower jaw.
My mouth is dry. I keep trying to lick my lips, and missing.
