Another Day – Another Tooth

It seems to me that this is the year of my teeth. I had one extracted in April, then a slice of jawbone shaved, because I was still having pain. In June, I had a root canal done. Last week, I went to a new dentist and a new endodontist. The new Endo poked and prodded and found some sort of “blood pocket” and cleared it out. Since then, I’ve had very little pain. #dentalpain #dentalwork

Of course, the tooth that started it all decided it had had enough of chewing. I called it my “crevice” tooth, because it had a canyon that went below the gum line. Over the weekend, and especially Sunday night, it gave me horrific pain.

Anyway, that tooth has now been extracted. The year of the dental work is continuing. Who knows how long it will go? Sorry I don’t have a better post for you today. I count my blessings though. A missionary friend is suffering from recurring malaria and pneumonia on the mission field in Guyana. #dentalpain #dentalwork

Please enjoy the archives. Have a blessed week.

  1. Oh, Donna I’m so sorry! I haven’t yet had a tooth extracted but a week ago had another dental access! My dentist referred me to an endodontist. He took a 3D image of my teeth but couldn’t find the source of the problem! My dental insurance is maxed out for the year already so it was $456 out of pocket with no answers. I’m trusting God for the solution!


    • Oh my. I’m sorry for you. This extraction has so far been a walk in the park compared to the first one. Different dentists, different techniques. And, of course. A LOT of prayer. I’m in better shape, but still. So far, so much better. So, I’m praying for you and your teeth. You seem to get abcesses more, huh. And yeah, I don’t have dental insurance yet. Gonna get some now. Bless your heart. Thanks for your comment.


  2. So sorry Donna for your pain! I just pray for a complete work to be done and restoration to come quickly. NO MORE PAIN!
