since I've had a toothache.
I have gone to the dentist every six months ever since I got teeth.
Now in my old age, I am experiencing receding gums and whatever else grinding one's teeth while sleeping causes.
For the past three weeks I have been having daily toothache pain with extreme sensitivity to hot/cold. OMG, if hot coffee touches the two areas affected, I go through the ceiling...same with anything cold. I have been experiencing sensitivity for years, but now it is EXTREME. I have not been chewing on that side at all.
I have no cavities, so it must be exposed nerves or something. I called the dentist today and made an appointment for next Tuesday. I am afraid he will be sending me to some periodontal specialist for some gruesome invasive (and expensive) treatment.
I just hope I can wait until Tuesday. It seems to be getting worse each day. When it gets really bad, I take a couple of aspirin and that seems to help a little bit for a few hours.
I can already tell, that I am not going to like getting old. The teeth are starting to go, what will be next?
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
