I was at the dentist’s today have a temporary cap replaced with a (what I hope will be a) permanent one.
Unfortunately, in this case, my dentist is very good. The temporary cap fit so perfectly that it didn’t want to break free and come out.
The tech wiggled it and wiggled it. No go.
It wasn’t very pleasant, because, as she wiggled the cap, the tooth rocked back and forth. The tooth itself didn’t hurt, but the rocking did. I nearly crushed my cell phone, which I was holding in my hands.
Finally, she said, “I’m not trying to hurt you” and called in reinforcements.
I said, “That’s okay. I know you aren’t working for Dick Cheney.”
