I called the dentist's office and got an appointment set up with the dental surgeon for a consultation. His secretary was really nice and easy to talk to, so that wasn't too bad. Usually secretaries are very professional and efficient, and then I get all nervous and completely forget what I need to say! :)
So that will be on the 26th, and I don't know how soon after that the actual surgery will be. I've really got to calm down about this though...I've had teeth taken out before (just ones that were in the way of where adult teeth needed to come it) and it wasn't too bad. I just have a really low pain tolerance, and I don't really want to eat soup for a week, much less pudding. I don't like pudding for some reason...I know, I'm crazy, everyone likes pudding, right?
Oh well, the oral surgeon, Dr. Kretzschmar is really nice (probably German with that name) and he has a daughter named Natalie... So it's not the people making me nervous, just the pain! Better now than later I guess! And after all this stuff: teeth pulled, braces, retainers, wisdom teeth extraction, if I take care of my teeth there shouldn't be anything else major to do to them for quite a while!
