I can't remember when was the last time I had my tooth extracted but I just underwent a wisdom tooth surgery yesterday with my regular dentist and it was a pleasant experience. I'm pretty sure you don't always hear pleasant and surgery together in one sentence but truth is, I've heard too many horror stories about wisdom tooth and the surgeries, so now I'm actually grateful that I have felt no pain at all to this point (after 36 hours).
Of course, my face (inner mouth gum?) is swollen as heck and I have difficulty opening my mouth that my lips are beginning to bleed a bit from the tension during the surgery and all, but it's kinda small matter, really.
It was a long journey before this surgery happened. I had to visit 2 different dentists at 2 different clinics - both were my first visit to the dentists - because my regular dentist is so popular that it is difficult to get an appointment with him. To my disappointment, both dentists that I visited were inexperienced and I had to even pay a hefty amount for a "useless" x-ray. Useless because when I finally got to visit my regular dentist (after kinda like begging/scolding the nurse for not scheduling the regular check-up) to have a check-up about my problematic wisdom teeth which were causing me painnnnn, he asked for a x-ray.
Nowadays, it appears that x-rays are in digital format so I had to get the soft-copy from the other clinic after I gotten a pendrive. Goodness, the hassle. So, after I had gotten the x-ray from the other clinic with the help of my mother (she travelled to the other clinic to get me the x-ray while I was waiting at my regular dentist's clinic - cause it's so freaking hard to get an appointment!).. the x-ray was useless because it cannot be used for surgery purpose... (!!!) That noob clinic! Crai.
Overall the procedure was smooth, so fingers crossed all is well. I still have to go and remove the stitches next week so I hope everything will be ok. Please be ok because assignments (and don't forget the ongoing thesis!) are starting to flow in now and I'm still procrastinating cause I haven't been feeling well since the start of CNY. Babi.
Anyway, Chinese New Year has been good. I'll blog more on it later if I feel like it :P
I love good yee sang.
A few people asked me why did I remove my wisdom tooth during CNY? I just want to get this over and done with mannn. I've eaten enough for the week, so the rest of the CNY... oklah.
