Today I had a broken eye tooth, (bottom left,) extracted wide awake in dentist chair.
I did have lidocaine, but found myself thinking 'this is an 18th century experience-- this prying and wrenching has been the same forever. How cool!
I am feeling pretty sore now of course. Stayed home from work, can't be perky today... Glad I don't have to scoot along some yardarm tonight.
