I chipped a tooth...

:iconsvataben:
Svataben Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
... and now I can't stop tounging the chipped area. :stare:

Why does fixing a tooth cost an arm and a leg, btw?

I guess I should be happy it isn't chipped too far down, because it doesn't hurt, and I can drink coffee without feeling it any more than usual.

Oh, and I just had to fix 4578578475 auto-corrects, because I had my iPad mini on Danish, and... I'm still tounging the damn tooth.


Anti-complaint: I bought an iPad mini! it is awesome! Free Netflix for a month as well, but I'll cancel after. The Danish version hasn't got much on yet.

In case of incompetent mod drive-by: My complaint is that I chipped a tooth. What I wish to discuss is my chipped tooth, the cost of fixing it, iPads, the amount of edits of autocorrects I just did, incompetent mods, coffee, guinea pigs, why it sucks that tomorrow is Monday, and why the Danish version of Netflix has such a limited amount of movies and series on it.

Lucky that it wasn't chipped bad enough to hurt afterward. That would suck.

I chipped a tooth in a snow brawl back in grade school. Good times. :lol:

Lots of blood though.

Yeah. I hate the thought of teeth hurting. I've never had cavities in my life, and I'm hellbent on keeping it that way.

Heck yes, I've got a ton of those!
...Yeah, I was a clumsy kid. :iconsadtardplz:

I've been having phantom pains in various teeth since I was at the dentists'. Makes no sense, since she did x-rays and everything looked perfectly fine.
Sheer nerves on my part. Conclusion: I'm an idiot. :lol:

Teeth are such a bitch :stare: My wisdom teeth are still trying to grow in and apparently are growing in sideways, god damn my narrow jaw. I might set up an appointment to get them removed during winter break. I won't have a reason to be particularly active by then and I will actually be able to relax.

Sounds like a good idea.

They can cause such problems, and once you get an infection, there'll be a lot more to fix.

Yeah :( I had read that once you turn 30 and still have impacted wisdom teeth, shit gets even worse in terms of infections.

The bike-ride back to work in the rain was worse than the fixing, and I’m rather happy about it. :lol:

I fainted once and broke my front left tooth and one of my canines. They didn't hurt *thank god* and luckily since I was entitled to NHS, it didn't cost me anything. It didn't hurt :)

I'm the same when I get anything new, teeth wise.

Teeth are really important. Apparently the pain one can get from it outweighs childbirth pain.

I don't get the difference between iPad mini and the iPad, apart from the obvious. :hmm:

Tonguing chipped teeth is I think one of my guilty pleasures. It's only happened twice, but I loved it both times. I still wanted it fixed, but I liked to tongue it. The part I didn't like was that both times I chipped my teeth, it was on soft granola bars.

I had one close a complsint thread because it didn't promote discussion, even thought the rule linked states: "Threads need to start a discussion, ask a question, and/or be relevant to the Forum you are posting in."
"and/or" not necessarily both.
My complaint was a complaint, and thus relevant to the forum.

I inquired politely by note as to why, and have been ignored for over a month.

Be thankful that it didn't get down to the nerve. I've never chipped a tooth but it shouldn't be too terribly expensive if you have any form of insurance (I'm not sure how it works in your country). I can, however, tell you about root canals. :bucktooth:

The root canal itself actually isn't that bad because you're all numbed up. It just sucks holding your jaw open for an hour and half, and thinking about them drilling through and excavating your tooth. It's just that the infection that causes you to need a root canal is one of the worst pains ever, seriously.

I will brush my teeth even more religiously in future, after reading this post.

But really, I do that already. I have a wisdom tooth not completely uncovered (and it never will be), and I have to brush thoroughly to avoid anything from a small infection to a giant cyst. o.O

Haha yep. It sucks for me because even though I take really good care of my teeth and always have, I inherited weak enamel from my dad and am extremely prone to getting cavities. :grump:

This. All of this.

Root canals only hurt if you are in pain beforehand anyway. If you go for one and the tooth isn't hurting, it's fine.

Yeah, luckily I took an antibiotic that made the infection go down enough that it didn't hurt. Though the dentist did still have to drill the tooth, leave medicine inside with a temp filling, and had me come back in 2 weeks.

It's just such a relief that I don't have to worry about that tooth at all anymore. I used to constantly get toothaches until it led to an infection... :hmm:

Luckily I now have dental insurance for the first time in 8 years!

I feel you on the chipped tooth. I chipped mine like...a year ago? And it's one of the front ones so I tongue it ALL the time. I can't wait until I go to the dentist eventually. They are going to cry at the state of my mouth.

My chipped is one of the two lower front teeth, my tongue rests against it, feeling it constantly. :nuu:

I'm pretty sure I also have a cavity in one of my molars...
