Chitty Chatty

Dentist (Part 2)


My visit to the dentist yesterday was anti-climatic (unlike the first two). Nervous? sure but not that much.

A little girl was the first to go in with her parents. Less than a minute later, I was called in. The room has 3 dentist chairs. I occupy one and waited for the dentist to finish his job with the little girl. She was a little difficult to handle and at 1 point the dentist scolded her. Wah I’m scared liao.

Then it was my turn. Time to remove the temporary filling & put in the permanent one. It was a breeze baby! No pain! I heard a funny & new ‘krrk krrk’ sound this time. Grandma said that’s the sewing part. I was like huh??? Put filling need to sew meh?

It was all over in less than 10 minutes I think. This time I pay RM45. Will need to wait at least days before I can munch food on this newly filled tooth. I will need to go back again for another temporary filling for my ‘rear’ tooth on the opposite side. Then again to put the permanent one. Then again for cleaning.

I’m pretty sure by the time I go back for the cleaning, my nervousness will be zilch.

    aw… too bad.

    If the girl was after you, then try this:

    when come out from the dentist operation room, try holding your chin, screaming out loud, running mindlessly around in the patient waiting room, pretending the the pain is unbearable, and rolling on the floor.

    i actually don’t really mind going to see a dentist, especially if he is lengchai. 😎

    goolooloo, aiyo… I paling takut is gigi longgar. Better start brush more thoroughly. My teeth nowadays also very sensitive. Cold or hot or sweet… also a little pain. πŸ™ Dentist is not that scary. Hehe Btw I checked out your blog, your picts are to die for. What camera n lens are you using?

    iWalk, Why not make dentistry in China more affordable?

    Renaye, hahaha but how would you know the dentist is leng chai? They always wear mask wor. :tongue:
