    OMG that sounds SO painful! I have two crowns, but they didn’t hurt at all. I have bad teeth though, so they hurt occasionally, and sometimes ache for a long time.

    Something I learned, if you don’t have access to copious amounts of controlled medication, Excedrin Migraine is AWESOME for tooth pain. Like, Amazing.

    Excruciatingly well written, Jana – I had my face wrinkled up in empathy. Oh gosh I SO hope that they fix you really soon 🙁

    I was not ready for that broken tooth pic – aaaack!!! I have had dreams of my teeth crumbling in my mouth – not pleasant. I can’t belive how much you are having to go through to get this dealt with! Poor thing – stay in bed with a cozy book that is in NO WAY tooth related!

    Oh. Holy. Crappers. Worst story ever. I’m dying inside for you. I hate anything to do with teeth. Teeth are gross. Thus the reason I haven’t been to the dentist in two years. I may have to re-think that. How are you doing now? Still in pain?

    Oh dear Jana! Not good at all 🙁 I had busted my two front teeth when I was a kid and decided about 10 yrs ago that I was going to pay the large sum of over $1000/tooth to have those two as well as the ones to either side capped. I even sold my dirt bike to pay for the procedure. *a good indication as to how badly I wanted a proper smile! I spent a good chunk of my young life at the dentist as that I have the same issues as you. Very narrow palate/mouth so there was no room for all those teeth. Well until I had this prep for my porcelain veneers I had zero problems with going for dental work. It was horrible! Sitting there while he ground and ground and ground! Then the temporary covers went on and while it wasn’t painful it was terribly uncomfortable. Just awful 🙁 I wondered if the permanent ones would feel the same way and questioned my decision to do it. Turned out it was a good choice. New veneers went on and I now have what my dentist called a ‘Hollywood smile’!

    And I am with Eva, that broken teeth pic made me cringe!

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
