The minor dental surgery went well yesterday.
I only had local anaesthetics for the extraction, no laughing gas, no GA, no happy pills either, hehehe…
Like I said to the dental nurse, once you’ve been through childbirth, every other pain seems minor by comparison, hahaha .
It took the dentist a few minutes only to extract each one and a few more minutes to stitch the cuts up.
We used to go to another dentist who doesn’t do wisdom tooth extraction, he only ‘manages’ teeth by making them look pretty and healthy. And he’s quite expensive as well.
Mana lah tak expensivenya, every time we all pergi jumpa dia, he would ask us what music we prefer to listen to and then gave us a headphone so we only hears music and not the drills. Sangat2 prihatin but tak larat kadang2, hehehe.
And he also had all the state of the arts fancy dental machines at his clinic. Tu yg our dental bills mahal giler with him.
Our private health fund covers some of his bills but not a lot since his bills are more than the usual dentist. So, we had to pay quite a big gap.
So, when my wisdom teeth start playing up, he referred me to an expensive dental surgeon who must be so popular sebab nak dapat appointment dengan this guy punyalah susah.
I pun malas lah nak fikir anymore, I went on the net to search for ‘in-chair wisdom tooth extraction in Perth’ and I found quite a few dentists who do it.
All the dentists around my area tak pulak buat in-chair wisdom teeth extraction. So, kenalah I cari somewhere else.
And I just gambled with this dental clinic yang dekat dengan masjid we normally go to on Sunday. This clinic is open 7 days a week which is a bonus (most clinics and dental clinics only open 5 days a week or 6 days a week aje kat perth ni).
I saw the new dentist on Wednesday last week and she told me she could do the extraction in-chair on a Sunday, so happy giler lah I.
And this new dentist is really good obviously because Alhamdulillah, so far, I haven’t had any pain from the extraction sites. I only took 1 panadeine forte yesterday once the anaesthetics wore off.
I think I might start going to this lady dentist from now on.
And yang buat we all lagi happy, our private health cover paid a lot of the bills yesterday, yeay!!!!
The bill for 2 wisdom teeth removal, local anaesthetics, cleaning and scaling came up to $632 and we only paid $253 gap. The private health fund paid the rest.
Iye tuan tuan dan puan puan, it is expensive to see a dentist kat OZ ni, hehehe.
But yang sedihnya, since yesterday, I have only been eating soft mushy food aje .
Semalam, I cuma makan nestum yang cair sangat2 and yoghurt post surgery.
Hari ni, I cuma makan yoghurt for breakfast, thin mushroom soup for lunch and mashed potato for dinner.
While the rest of the family had this tonite….
I kan ibu and isteri mithali you so I made meatballs pasta bake for them for dinner tonite, hehehe…
(The Other Half bought burger and chips for their dinner last night sebab he didn’t want me to masak).
Sangat lah tersiksanya jiwa dan raga I melihat diaorang makan the pasta bake dengan lahapnya!
They said to me, “This is so yummy. Thanks a lot for making this for us even though you can’t eat it.”
While I cuma makan….
Really soft mashed potatoes without gravy..
Sedih kan, hikhikhikhik….
Kalau tak turun jugak berat I lepas ni, memang lah! Heeeeee…..
