My family is insane.

Was talking to Mom today, and found out something interesting...

Apparently, her great-grandfather (my great-great-grandfather) had a career as a South American mercenary. I kid you not. But he didn't die on the field of battle. Oh, no. He actually committed suicide.

Because he was afraid to get a tooth pulled.

Insane.

Ever had a tooth pulled?

I had a bad wisdom tooth taken out with just a local anaesthetic. Oh baby! That hurt.

I've had 4 teeth removed with local anesthetic, and a wisdom tooth removed with knock-you-out-you-dead-now anesthetic. None of them were too bad.

Just baby teeth. My baby teeth were obscenely late in falling out, and sometimes forgot to do so before the new tooth erupted in the wrong place. Thus, lots of tooth-pulling when I was little. Plenty of anesthetic, though, so it didn't hurt much.

In fact, I'm short adult molars, with nary a wisdom tooth in sight--I'll need to have a pair of bottom molars implanted in a few years, or I'll lose the corresponding top ones.

Your dentists must not be very good. I've had one tooth pulled, and I didn't feel it at all. Apparently it bled a lot though, because I could taste the blood.

This came up because I got my teeth cleaned today. Don't worry, I survived the ordeal. ;^)

haha. You'll be suprised at what you'll find when you look through your own history.
