I’ve been telling myself this long list of things I will do once I settle down. Top on the list is to see a dentist. However, a year passed, and I still don’t feel settled down. My tooth cannot wait for me.
The evening of April 1st, my tooth suddenly ached so much that I could not sleep. I visited a nearby dentist the next day and was told that it had decayed very badly and, it being a wisdom tooth, we cannot do a root canal and had no option but having it pulled.
Although it’s merely pulling a tooth, I felt rather upset as if part of my body is amputated due to my own fault. Akane, who has healthy teeth and has never seen a pulled tooth before, examined it curiously.
By the way, tooth pulling is such a scary thing to do. I wonder how the dentists were trained to do it.
