Ahhh, toothache! I’ve been a martyr to toothache for quite a few weeks now… At my 6 monthly (every three years) check-up over Easter I complained about the ache. The dentist prodded and proclaimed me cavity free. I complained LOUDER about the pain so they took a ‘snapshot’ which their nice x-ray developing machine then promptly ate… so they sent me away. A few weeks later I have more persistent pain so I revisit. Again the prodding, again the no cavity, again the ‘photo’ BUT this time it reveals a hidden cavity – about 1/2 of a back tooth is cavity and producing quite a bit of pain… extraction due this Friday after a FURTHER two-week wait! I guess this isn’t the last of the pain then!
