My curse upon your venom’d stang,
That shoots my tortur’d gums alang,
An’ thro’ my lug gies mony a twang,
Wi’ gnawing vengeance,
Tearing my nerves wi’ bitter pang,
Like racking engines!

Who says I am uncultured!

Yeah Friday night at 17.00 toothache arrived and as of 20.00 Monday it us still there. I managed to get an emergency appointment today at 15.00 tooth drilled out and abscess drained, but it hurt more coming out than when I went in.

Sat here feeling sorry for myself now!

The cause was a filling dropping out on the first day of Lockdown in 2020

Our dental services are so backlogged they are really only doing emergency appointments while they work through the waiting list. Added to this we lost a number of dentists. Even the private practices have huge waiting lists.

Regular service will hopefully resume tomorrow.

Out of interest the printer is still chuntering away in the bottom shed. 25 hours in another tower and base are standing 14.8cm last time I looked. It has another bit to go on top,… not sure how tall it will be.

  1. I hesitated to “like” this, since toothache is no fun! I had a similar experience to you in that the corner of a large filling cracked off at the start of lockdown, but I was fortunate in that the tooth/nerves weren’t exposed and it just felt a bit rough!

  2. I’m with John, I’ll like this post only as support! I had a root canal and temp cap put on just before everything locked down n the US. That cap was on for 6 months, and it was hell getting it off and them fitting the permanent crown. Good luck!

  3. That’s no good at all. I hope you feel better soon! If it makes you feel any better, I got my first crown done and have had a lot of sensitivity ever since. I keep hoping that it will get better soon but its been two months now so I don’t know.
