tooth extraction - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Look at x-rays with dentist. Topical anaesthetic on a q-tip, needle in gum three times, sharp sensation, bitter taste, getting numb. Read the waiver, head spins, nerve damage, bleeding, sign the waiver, lie back, look at fake plants in wall partition, TV overhead with the food channel, music playing from a popular radio station, smiling assistant, charming dentist, dental forceps, rocking tooth, pressure in jaw, two minutes, pop, tooth is out, bite on guaze, taste of blood, salt water rinse, bite on tea bag.
I slowly and fearfully walked towards the dentist's clinic. I had to get a tooth extracted. My brother said it hurts like hell. I didn't think I could trust him. Because one time I had to get an operation for a kidney stone and my lying brother said "They don't give you anesthetics so you can see yourself getting cut open and it really hurts." But they did give me anesthetics for the operation. I walked in and sat down nervously. It seemed like hours for the them to call my name. All the time I was dreading the extraction. Then the receptionist called out "Ryan Smith." I tried to order my feet to move but they didn't. I finally got them to move. I slowly walked towards the operating room. It seem like a mile away because I was moving so slowly. I sat down on the chair as it leaned back. I had asked for anesthesia so I didn't have to bear the pain and watching them doing it. They put the mask over my face for me to breath in. I breathed in and immediately lost consciousness.
