The name of the Dr. who did mine was Dr. Slaughter(in Medford).....how reassuring...
I had all four of mine done at the same time. The anesthesia made me goofy, apparently I told my mom that "it was fun having teeth pulled"...yep, real fun.
Make sure you get your painkillers fast so you can get them in your system. I was pretty sore for a couple of days and had an incident of puking, passing out, getting stuck between the toilet and the wall and my mom had to pull me out..LOL, that was due to taking too many pain killers and it made me sick.
Good Luck, best to get it now rather when your 40 like my dad, bad deal, I never seen him in so much pain.
Aha! My Dad uses Dr. Slaughter!
I like him, but unfortunately our insurance won't cover anyone but the creepy people at Willamette Dental near Ashland doing it. *pout* The last time I got a really creepy old lady assistant who talked with her eyes closed....She even looked in my mouth WITH HER EYES CLOSED.
Do you doubt why I'm scared to death? LOL
Thank god the actual dentist isn't so bad....She pretty much just ignores me panicking (Which is good, I would probably go into total meltdown mode if anyone tried to "comfort" me beforehand) and is pretty reassuring about everything. She says things like "Honey, you get on 1200lb animals every single day....Trust me, you're already the bravest of any of my patients."
Lol I'm such a little kid about the dentist. Seriously.
I once got potentially the biggest needle I had ever seen stuck into my toe whilst I was practically falling asleep. Apparantly I was the first person who hadn't at least flinched at that procedure. Stick IVs in me, shove pills down my throat, take my blood, But dear god, don't stick those stupid little x ray cards in my mouth, don't come near me with a mini mirror, and if you try and touch me with that stupid water sucky thing, you're lucky to make it out alive....
