He made a remark about me putting all 6 into my mouth; “Wow you’re such a brave girl, you put everything into your mouth!”
I reckon the reason why he said so is to tell me that am brave enough to go through the process without any qualms. Indeed I was extremely nervous and tensed!
See the hole? That is the 1st hole that need to be fill up
The tooth behind as shown the pix above, affected as well hence the big hole. I was shocked when I saw it myself. So ugly! My goose bump rose when I saw the pix that he snap
* My goose bump rousing still...
Snap shot of the pix, ignore pix no. 1 as that is someone else tooth
Later on the dentist inserts a purple colour thingy into my mouth on my right side to do marking as he need to get the mould done up before sending off somewhere to prepare my tooth crown
I was given about 5 to 10 mins breakie before the surgery. As I couldn’t talk and I planned to type out in sms form and tell him I need to go to the loo but before I do so, he already ask, “Girl, do you need to go to washroom? Immediately I shake my head non stop and head off to the loo and I saw myself over the mirror, I look horrible! Pale and my right jaw rather puffy
After that the assistant help to dress me up the surgery outfit and I took sometime to cam-whore a bit :p The dentist was laughing at me for being so cheeky still
He begins to use the tool to drill into the spot and slowly he managed to get bits and pieces of the tooth out which is kinda broken. He has to take it bit by bit in order not to put any pressure point as the wisdom tooth root is sitting on the nerve. After several attempts to get the tooth finally he has no choice but to use a knife for further operation. He gotta be very careful in order not to disturb the tooth next to it.
Before further operation, he put another injection to ensure my gum really numb and then he proceeded to cut the gum out and my gum bleed profusely. I could sorta feel that as there are few times I’ve no choice but to gulp down my own saliva and I can taste the blood together with the left over from the drilling. Yucks!
Finally after cutting the gum he was able to extract the whole piece of wisdom tooth that was buried inside which also hitting the nerve that make it so uncomfortable. My gum was bleeding profusely still and the lady assistant kept on sucking the blood. Immediately the dentist sew back the gum and it was about 6 stitches all together.
Done! Can you see the Gold-Plated tooth? Wow, I am so rich! :p
Bits and pieces of my wisdom tooth

Reached home I sleep all the way for few hours with empty stomach. My mum woke me up and ask me to eat porridge. I realized that I can’t use much energy and no force from my right side as the nerves connected will pull over and affect the wound. Even sneezing also I have to control!
How I eat the porridge? I use straw to suck. I can barely open my mouth and both my lips side cracked as I’ve been opening my mouth for 2 hours! So I’ve been sucking porridge and water and I had few bowls of porridge as my stomach really empty and I can't suck too hard, I need to suck slowly so that it won't pull my muscles.
I need to be on liquid and soft food diet for at least a week. Nothing hot and not too cold as well….ish! Moody man! Can’t enjoy food at all, I saw my favourite grapes in the fridge that he bought, mum enjoying it while all I can do it look only.
10 days later I need to go back to the clinic to remove the thread and remove the temporary Gold-Plated tooth. Then replace with my crown and make appointment for next filling up job on my left side. Thank god to do filling there won’t be any pain involve and no jab needed as well.
From now on, I need to cut down on sweet stuff which means I need to cut down my ‘Happy Meal’ – desserts! As sweet food = sweet tooth! Thus tooth decay!
