what happened


i had a root canal started and there was a temporary filling and i was like fuck it this shits fixed

then if failed and it started to hurt and degrade

i went to a place next to a starbucks and look they did not give a fuck about my well being

they ripped it out i had a panic attack and pieces of teeth came out of my gums months later



oh man I have basically the same story. I had a surprise root canal then they told me the only type of crown that could fit on it was gold so I said fuck that. the temp crown thing fell out in a year then I had a tooth with a giant whole in it. after a year or two of that half that tooth fell out so I had about 1/3 of a back molar remaining. every once in a while I'd accidentally chew a chip wrong or something and it would really hurt. I had to get oral surgery (extraction?) to get that last 1/3 out. probably about an 8 year ordeal. hope this isn't the case with you, I'd get it taken care of asap because it's probably only going to get more expensive (or wait 30 more years for Medicaid)

yeah that's pretty close to my current woes.

i didn't have dental insurance for the majority of my 20s. i got a pretty bad infection and went to an emergency dentist to get a root canal. they fucked up the finishing and it busted open while i was eating a burrito and it got infected but didn't show any outward symptoms for like 2 years before suddenly swelling up the entire left side of my face and even though this was 3 years ago, i'm still getting work done on that specific situation.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/08/well/live/dentists-tooth-teeth-cracks-fractures-coronavirus-stress-grinding.html

I closed my midtown Manhattan practice to all but dental emergencies in mid-March, in line with American Dental Association guidelines and state government mandate. Almost immediately, I noticed an uptick in phone calls: jaw pain, tooth sensitivity, achiness in the cheeks, migraines. Most of these patients I effectively treated via telemedicine.

But when I reopened my practice in early June, the fractures started coming in: at least one a day, every single day that I’ve been in the office. On average, I’m seeing three to four; the bad days are six-plus fractures.

What’s going on? One obvious answer is stress. From Covid-induced nightmares to “doomsurfing” to “coronaphobia,” it’s no secret that pandemic-related anxiety is affecting our collective mental health. That stress, in turn, leads to clenching and grinding, which can damage the teeth.


Awareness is key. Are your teeth currently touching? Even as you read this article? If so, that’s a sure sign that you’re doing some damage — your teeth shouldn’t actually touch throughout the day at all unless you’re actively eating and chewing your food. Instead, your jaw should be relaxed, with a bit of space between the teeth when the lips are closed. Be mindful, and try to stop yourself from grinding when you catch yourself doing it.

The pain minimal


It’s not the actual root canal that hurts. It’s general anesthesia via giant wooden mallet to the noggin that hurts.

i just had some cavities filled today, and i think they did a bad job because i can feel like, a large gap and hook on one of my molars where the resin is supposed to be.

@important dentist, is this normal and it will wear down to a normal shape or should i go back and complain. i am leaning toward going back and having them look and assure me it is fine.


also, nothing makes you more acutely and viscerally aware of having a body than sitting in a dentist chair, hearing the whurring and whining of a dentist tool vibrating its hell up your jaw and into your brain.

Losing teeth
by Han Yu 768 - 824

Last year a lone molar tumbled out,
and this year, an incisor vanished,
then all at once, six or seven tipped
away, and it's not over yet, oh no:
every tooth I have's a rickety mess.
This won't end till they're all gone.
When the first one went, I just felt
a bit embarrassed about it, that hole,
but then, after two or three more,
I began to think death was at hand,
and every time another threatened,
terror quaked straight through me
as it teetered there. I couldn't chew
for fear, or even rinse it with water,
and breaking loose, abandoning me,
it seemed like a mountain collapsing.
Lately, though, I've gotten used to it.
Now, seeing one go is pure emptiness,
and I still have a couple dozen left.
I know they'll topple out one by one,
but if they take their time, fall maybe
one per year, they'll last two decades,
and if they tumble all at once, all that
emptiness - the end result's the same.
People say once your teeth start to go,
you may as well forget about long life,
but I say every life has its own limits,
and long life or short, death is death.
People say tooth-holes glaring out
spook anyone looking you in the face,
but I say Chaung Tzu's right: singing
geese, junk trees: either way, life's joy.
Besides, better dark silence than lies,
and soft food's fine without any teeth,
like this poem sung: quite a shocker,
I'm sure for my sweet wife and kids.

chipped one my molars the other day when I was carelessly shoveling popcorn into my mouth and bit down real hard into an unpopped kernel. its a really tiny chip and it doesn't hurt at all. I should probably get this looked at but I'm poor and unemployed and have no dental insurance. is this going to turn into something bad down the line left untreated?

i take real good care of my teeth and its all undone by a damn popcorn kernel.

Yeah I've always wondered what the evolutionary benefit of having nerves in your teeth was supposed to be. Maybe feedback if you bit into a rock or your prey was trying to wriggle loose? But you'd think the nerves in your gums would be sufficient for that purpose. Having nerves in your teeth is just a giant "thanks, I love pain" for nothing.

oh yeah it gets funnier every time

I got two root canals yesterday! very disturbingly similar to many other posts itt as I've got like temporary crowns and they're highly likely going to want to do an extraction on one after all.

blogger what did they tell you the price was going to be for your extraction? They gonna put in a bone graft too?

They wanted 11k for everything for me! When they handed me the itemized list of everything they wanted to do I was like jesus christ ok you've got to give me time to look at this. So I'm trying to figure out what I desperately need vs what I can put off, or at least try to find somewhere else to do it for cheaper, and they give me like 2 minutes and then come back like, knock knock.
