Top Five Indicators Your Dental Appointment Is Going South

1.) It takes three hours, not two.

2.) Half-way through, dentist makes sudden, inexplicable code-like comments to assistant, then looks at you in a soothing manner. Way too soothing.

3.) Extra novacaine is injected in Unexpected Places while he continues soothing manner. And God, that hurt.

4.) A scalpel makes an unexpected appearance and he asks you to hold really still now and don't close your mouth.

5.) They drug you *before* you leave the office in a proactive manner that's not a little disturbing.

We will never discuss this again. Suffice to say, I'm brushing my teeth five times a day from here on out.

Go Austria!

The worst day of my dental life was when I found out that the last dentist in the area to still use nitrous, doesn't anymore.

When I was a child living on an army post, my mother took me to the dentist to have a cavity filled in one of my molars and went out to the waiting room. When she heard me screaming bloody murder, she came in and wanted to know what was going on. Instead of filling the cavity, the dentist pulled the tooth because it wasn't an adult tooth. My mother chewed him up one side and down the other, got it for free and the damn adult tooth didn't grow in for yeeeeaaarrs.

...and floss. Don't forget to floss. Your gums will get you if you don't floss. I'm just sayin'.

Proud to be Austrian? Now, if you just added an "al" in the middle of that, I could agree. *bg*

All the same, the dentist visit sounds horrible. *hugs Jenn carefully*

I know all the horros of the dental system, because I've been wearing braces for the last 10 years (and I'm 18). I really hope that tomorrow, when I'm at my dentist, they'll say that they'll take it all off.

What's the deal with the Austrian thing?

*pets Jenn* Sorry about the dental woes. That's one of my worst phobias.

And can I add my voice to the Austrian confusion? I'm assuming it has something to do with the nationality of the actors on QAF?

yeah, me too. what's the austrian thing? i hate being late to every damn party.

Ah, yes, of course. We don't have QaF in Denmark...

poor baby.


Just for you:

Another indicator is if the dentist says "oops" at any time during your procedure. Oh - and if you see smoke rising out of your mouth.

I think we're freaking people the fuck out with this Austria thing.

So, can you/anybody explain this Austria thing to me, while you are at it? Pwetty please.

It *is* disturbing, especially to Austrians.
