The official "I hate the dentist" thread

KamiKami Registered User regular
edited July 2007 in Social Entropy++
I decided to make this thread, because I hate the dentist.

I have an appointment set up for tomorrow morning, because I need to get a filling. It's extremely painful right now, and not only is the dentist going to try to kill me by making me wait, he's going to doubly try to kill me when I get there, with his needles and numbing gel.

Fuck that numbing gel. Give me morphine or heroine or something.

Post all of your awesome (by awesome, I mean horrendous and terrifying) dental stories in this thread.

But seriously, fuck the dentist.

    I've had crazy dental work in the past, with two full blown surgeries on my jaw, and upper gumline. A majority of my top teeth are fake because of it.

    I have a history with the dentist, and it's a history rich with him kicking my ass with chainsaws and stuff.

    I had surgery to correct a problem with my gums when I was in my early teens. After which they sent me to the periodontist, who was the most sadistic motherfucker on the planet.

    One day he decided to do a deep scaling (using the metal hook underneath the gumline). Didn't bother to let me know or inject me with anything. It felt like I had my mouth raped by a cactus.

    He also had an ultrasonic cleaner, so not only did it suck when he was scraping, but it also made an extremely high pitch whining sound and shook the fuck out of my jaw. I hope he gets hit by a truck.

    Ya, that is weird, because for the first 16 year of my life or so I had horrible dental hygiene, but I've yet to have a single cavity. I'm 22 now and brush regularily.

    My mom brushes her teeth alot but she has horrible horrible dental problems.
    I should say had because now she has dentures.
    Sometimes bad teeth just run in the family.

    However dirty teeth, that can be fixed.

    I had a tooth that wouldn't come out of the gums, so they gave me some stuff, and then hacked away at my gums to reveal the tooth. I kind of woke up in the middle. It was still numb, but I could just feel her cutting away

    I've had a lot of stuff done.

    Like... 6 teeth pulled? Maybe 8, I forget

    The thing I hate the most is getting a needle stuck into your gums

    ...The only bad experience I have had with my dentist was during the period of my childhood when I didn't brush my teeth. Then I started brushing my teeth.

    After having braces for most of junior high, a dentist doesn't seem that bad in comparison. Also, that orthodontist bastard got that "guess your adult height" wrong. He said I was going to be six foot one! Thanks for getting my hopes up, you ass!

    I hated my dentist when I was a kid. Every single time I went in, that fucker found 2 or 3 cavities. Then my mom would yell at me for not brushing my teeth. I did brush my teeth damn it.

    It hurt like all fucking hell when he drilled my teeth. I don't think he used enough novocain, and I think he drilled right up to the nerve endings and gave 'em a few taps just 'cause he was a total fucking cocksucker.

    Every time we went in there, he raised his rates. We started going to someone less expensive. Magically, I never had another cavity after I stopped seeing him.

    Pretty sure he was a fucking crook, and a lot of my teeth were drilled for no reason.

    I wish I had a friend who was a dentist. I would go in when people are knocked out for procedures and wait until they're just about to wake up and drop my pants, just so the first thing they see when coming to is some strange guy pulling up their pants and handing the dentist some cash.

    Did Kramer want people to infer rape? That's what I was going for. Well, the dentist and I could be screwing too, but I was going more for the rape angle.

    Jerry was at the dentist and was waking up. His eyes were all unfocused and stuff, and he thought he saw the nurse and the dentist pulling up their pants and stuff.

    Then there was this whole big thing about whether or not Jerry's shirt was tucked in before he went under.

    Some comment about like "I was spitting and rinsing like there was no tomorrow."

    Basically the same concept. Dentist doing dirty things to you while you're sedated.

    When I needed to get my wisdom teeth out, my dentist recommended an oral surgeon to go to. I guess he was mildly competent since he got the teeth out, although I don't give him that much credit considering I starting to wake up during the middle of the operation because he didn't give me enough anesthesia. Nothing like waking up to your entire mouth in unimaginable pain.

    I didn't go back to that surgeon ever again. Or that dentist.

    had many more problems with orthodontists than dentists

    when I was pretty young I had my only filling for a cavity

    I remember thinking that it wasn't so bad

    apparently they used some weird new treatment instead of needles

    I've never been drilled by a dentist

    I guess it's kind of like never being stung by a bee or similar insect

    or something

    (that hasn't happened to me either)

    or never breaking a bone

    hmm, I'm a pretty lucky bastard.

    I just got another tooth pulled last week. No need to remove the bottom wisdom teeth--made room for them by plucking out a couple of old crappy ones. Better than a couple root canals, methinks. (I have bad teeth.)

    Unfortunately, I don't really have any on top that are crappy enough to do that yank and let grow technique.

    I am fearful of dental surgery....not the plucking of my looser bones, so much as the monies to do it.

    That happened to me. At least 4 unnecessary drillings. I have bad teeth, sure, but when you go in and they say you have 20-someodd cavities....how is it that I never noticed that? Second oppinion said 3.

    For the most part I took care of my teeth

    When I was in a coma they took the time to remove my wisdom teeth
    I only found out about it long after they did during a check up and reading my file

    At my last job there was a woman who has worn braces most of her life and was embarassed about it

    I have a friend who's in dentist school to be an orthodontist. Part of the reasonI'm trying like hell to stay on his good side and keep in touch is so my future kids and I can get free orthodontist work done. Stupid braces are so goddamn expensive. The braces years were so awkward. At least I never needed headgear.
