The dental nurse leaning over you with her heaving breasts right beside your face....and trying not to get over excited..as she occasionally brushes them against your face....and all you can say in response is...'wah-wor, whi wor'

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

In a bad way?


We don't have dental nurses in France.
Most docs and dentists are one-man-bands
working out of converted apartments.

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

Love it, Love it, Love it, all! Can't wait to go back to mine, and have a few more root canals sorted!!! Since my last episode, over a three month period, the longest session in the chair being three hours or so, I now consider it to be a social function, with my oral health in mind of course, that I thoroughly enjoy! Roll on September, mind you the wallet opening bit does hurt a bit.

The worst part is the bill

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

I opted for other, paying the bill is the worst part, physical pain wears off but it takes ages for the cavaties in my bank balance to be filled.

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

oops... i meant to click the taste of latex but i chose other by accident lol

I'm very very lucky so far, never needed drilling, filling or anything other than checks from the dentist....
I know one day that will change and I'm dreading it...

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

I don't like the drilling. The way it vibrates through your skull is awful.
The only problem I have with the injections is that sometimes they don't work well. I usually just grin and bear the pain until the drilling is done though.

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

How times change

I've just been charged £150 for a pair of models of my teeth so that our dentist can decide the best way of putting them right (I grind my teeth in my sleep, so I'm wearing them out too quickly) The rest is going to cost a hell of a lot I suspect. Our dentist only went private last year, so I'm new to this business of paying tax for health treatment, not getting it and having to pay again through the nose.

My late dad was a dentist (NHS) and when I was small I used to go down to the surgery on a saturday morning with him and mix the plaster and put it into the moulds dad had taken earlier that week, in the days when he did them himself (he was pretty good at them and won a prize for his technical work at dental school). If I was lucky I got five bob

My complete lack of academic prowess at chemistry, physics and biology prevented me from becoming a dentist. Being a lazy b*gger didn't help much either

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

I'll let you know how the laser works, no needle, 20 min crowns. Apparently no pain, here's hoping.

Re: Worst bit of going to the dentist?

That cartoon depiction sums up the feeling a bit, when the slide hammer is used to remove old metal crowns and soforth. All in all, todays modern dentistry, is brilliant, in my opinion.: Now back in the late forties, early fifties, that was really something else.
