...and it didn't hurt a bit! Makes me realise just how crap my previous dentist was as it used to always be absolute agony! :eek:

Still, can't speak properly now though. :lol:

I guess I'll wait and see if this one sticks around. I was just pleased to able to register at all. Took me months to find somewhere that was taking on new NHS patients. It's a little place out of town and they're really good. :)

My face is starting to hurt now. :(

OOh been there done that and all under GA! Nasty wisdom teeth made me get two black eyes and a majorly bruised chest. Guess the surgeon had something comfy to kneel on tho :lol:

Yeah! my face looks like I insulted Mike Tyson's mother to his face :( They must be quite brutal when they pull these teeth as I had bruises on my chest as well!! Didn't really hurt to much for the first week but now I'm back at work they are giving me a whole load of grief :(

haven't been to the dentist in 10 years (fucking hell!!) just can't afford it! :(
Keep trying to get an NHS dentist. I managed it eventually. The costs have come done a lot too (like halved!) and the most you'd ever have to pay is about £180.

For all the work I'm having, it's costing a total of £42 which isn't anywhere near as expensive as I thought it'd be. :hangloose

Urgh, i have bad memories of my wisdom teeth coming out, but i won't bother you with them, your new sadist dentist sounds a bit human..

to be fair, that is pretty reasonable - but like you said, finding an NHS dentist is a mission in itself :rolleyes:

i had a filling last week. cost me £90. there are no nhs dentists left where i live.

i had 3 injections and one anasthetic round the tooth, it just wouldn't go numb! by the time she'd finished my mouth was very numb! had to go back to work and answer calls. i was not impressed! :)

I had all my wisdom teeth filled.
Me too, my dentist was far too keen to just 'pop them out' and I said she could do it if she could hold me down.

She filled the teeth instead (and I haven't had any probs with them). :D

Did cost me £66 quid a filling tho and I had three (and that's NHS - but I won't have black fillings)

My old dentist was lovely - she would fill a filling with the black stuff and just put a bit of white on top so the black wouldn't show, and charge me NHS prices :)

I haven't been since 1998, I should do really, my jaw's been aching for a few days, I think my wisdom teeth are coming through. I'm scared they'll charge me the earth for lots of work - eg, I have a huge gap where my tooth fell out and my filling can cause a bit of jip if I bite too hard. Both don't bother me, so I don't want to pay for them to be corrected.

I had to have mine done under general!! if the dentist tried to pull them while I was awake he would have required a work colleague to correct the damage to his own teeth :tick: ;) Plus getting them done in the hospital costs bugger all apart from a bit of a wait :)
