Pain pills & ice will be your best friends for the next few days! I'm proud of you, I couldn't have done it without being knocked partially out!

Curious about how they knocked you out.  Did you get totally knocked out or twilight?

I am happy that you are coming along I still have to do everything starting with extractions.  Nervous and excited although I am going to be going to a terrific dentist.  I am concerned that I will need oral surgery.  I hope I do not need that and he can pull them and replace in one day.

It is NEVER a breeze unless you are completely knocked out and they don't do that anymore!

My oral sugeon was going to give me a general anesthetic until we discussed some of my health problems, that was when he recommended the twilight.

Rinse with salt water, take pain pills. It gets better each day.

Or even have a couple small, non white pieces of paper to cover the other ones.

They asked me what color I wanted, I told them one shade darker than glow in the dark! If you have ever seen the show Friends, they do a whole episode of Ross bleaching his teeth too white, the woman he was on the date with flipped off the regular lights and turned on a black Light and of course his teeth little right up. Lol

We like to go take the kids Cosmo bowling, I don't want that to happen!

I have heard that you should never get your teeth whiter than the whites of your eyes.

The truth of it is unfortunately we are all aging and that's why a 20 yr olds mouth with teeth in good health will be brighter than a 40....50...60 yr old and so on.

They gave me the option of a general at a private hospital (12 teeth) but I opted for the chair. Would have added a few $$$$'s to the cost. I have just had my new uppers lined after a 6 month wait (dentist's orders) But he gave me a new upper after realising I needed an adustment. Teeth needed to be moved back slightly. Fit great, but my jaw is aching from the rear molars being in a different place & have a few new sore spots.But I'm so rapt in having a set that fit so well I don't give a rats A. What others have said about warm salty water is true, it works.
