Root Canal Selfies

I do this, too...
Pretty much every time I go to the dentist.

Doing a selfie during such an essentially disturbing procedure is, I think, related to the literary concept that to name something is to tame it. Or it might be a way of gaining control in a situation where you have so little of it.

There probably is something to it... some kind of comfort in knowing what is wrong with you, instead of wondering what is wrong?

I had a pair of root canals done when I broke my two front teeth, but I did not take any photos, at that time. I did take a shot of myself in the hospital, all covered in tubes, right after the incident, but I was carrying around a disposable 35mm, all before the digital cameras. Where is that one, I wonder?

Yet again I am thankful for my excellent full set of dentures.

It's always good to count your blessings...

These are so awesome. :) Sorry about sore tooth, hope it's a fading memory otherwise!

Thanks. It may take a LONG time for that particular memory to fade.
