The Dumbass Lounge>Dental experiences with O.City
O.city 09:02 PM 12-04-2019
Had a pretty interesting day today at the office. Morning was pretty normal, drill and fill, check hygiene, extract a tooth etc. Nothing too out of the ordinary.

Pretty normal lunch. Trolled around on CP, ate an apple and a handful of wheat thins.

Then the afternoon hit.

I see inmates from the county jail here in town if they have a tooth ache or something, sheriff or deputy will call up and bring them up in shackles and the whole bit. It's not big deal, most of them are just happy to get out of pain and it's not a problem. So dude comes in, my assistant goes in to ask the normal "which tooth is bothering you, let me get an xray, blah blah". I was in the lab doing something so I wasn't really paying attention. She comes in and says "doc, you will need to come look at something" to which I responded "he need a tooth out, which tooth is hurting"?

"All of them". Huh, ok, weird response but lets go check it out. Sure enough, continued meth use pretty much causes things to not go so well intraorally, so he was pretty much decayed out and most teeth were broken off to the gumline (google meth mouth if you want to see it, i'm not messing with photos). Asked if I could extract all 26 teeth he had left in the 30 minute block we had on the schedule for him.

I laughed, said "nah, which one hurts the worst, we'll take that out". He pointed to one, I numbed it up, used an elevator to take it out, about 30 seconds worth of pressure and it was pretty lose. 2 teeth next to it are super mobile and infected (which starts draining as I get this one out, that smelt nice) so I told him he was getting 2 free extractions since he was already numb in that area and they were loose and I was right there, no harm no foul.

It's always fun when we see the inmates, the Sheriff comes up and sits in the room with them all serious, then when I come in the room we talk about hunting or why the Chiefs always break hearts or something.

He breaks down and starts crying thanking me, that he already felt better (if you saw the amount of infection I drained, you'd see why) and asked if he could make an appointment for when he got out. "Sure, how long you think you'll be in this predicament".

"I figure 4 or 5 years, you scheduling ahead that far yet"? Told him nah, just take care of himself and come see me when he gets out.

Next patient is an amish guy (we have a fairly big amish community near us), super nice guy, needs a crown. Asks if he can barter instead of pay, I ask what is in it for me, said he'd bring me a dozen eggs every week for 6 months (they have chicken barns or something) or I could have a quarter of one of the cows they're butchering. Sold, eggs and beef for a crown, sign me up.

Only problem with that is he scheduled an appointment for himself, but brought 4 other family members who all needed work done.

So we had a waiting room full of inmates and Amish this afternoon. Thought that might be a good name of a band or something.

Be careful with mouth infections. I presume the second doctor went through what to look for regarding dry socket? Itís nothing to fool around with. If infection was already there hopefully they packed it.
Right? When I saw the x-ray I was AMAZED at how big of a chunk had been left in my mouth. It completely explains why I could be walking around one minute and the next I was on my knees writhing in pain.

The infection was very small and they just cleaned it out. No dry socket... the clot is nice and gooey in the hole there.

I just had a wisdom tooth pulled (#1) only 31 years after the other three were removed. Still numb from the procedure but it seemed to go quite easily and well. Hats off to my oral surgeon. Too bad my leg sweat was all over his table after I got up. Hard to believe I was so nervous lol.

Yes, yes it is. I ALWAYS have a bag of flossers sitting around. Office, man-chair, all bathrooms, cars, truck, motorcycle, you name it. Eat then floss, it's a good thing..

But, bite into an olive from your martini (like I did last year), and BOOM, the dentist is making some cash! LOL, that SUCKED!

O.City did you see the story about Goldberg from Mighty Ducks? Apparently he is almost a year drug free but had to get all new teeth bc of meth.

You ever have to do dental work with a scope that big/bad?

Like full mouth rehab meth mouth etc? Yeah, in my rural office pretty regularly.

I took out 26 teeth and delivered a set of dentures to a guy who got off the sauce just a week ago.

I prefer to upload them to imgur.com and then right click - copy the image location then post it here with img tags.
