Yesterday, I could not bear the pain anymore. So I decided to finally see a dentist (and have it removed if needed to). I had this fear ever since. But there’s no other way. My left cheek was already in pain.

Had my teeth checked. At first, the dentist said, as how she sees them, clinically, my molar teeth were okay. She had then suggested that I should go for an xray to see what’s the problem. I went.

Went back this morning to get the result. Then, she said there’s a cavity formed in the upper molar. I just feel the pain on the lower, but it’s actually from the upper left set of my teeth. And another cause was “sinusitis”. There was an infection due to this. That, I don’t understand how they are connected. But the funny part was, before the dentist could touch any of my teeth, I requested to do the check gently, because I’m scared to death. (I even asked her if she’s going to inject something, good thing there was none.) And guess what she answered? “I am scared too, my dear”. I am a dentist but honestly, I am scared too!”. Huwaaaaaat?!!

Anyway, she advised that I should continue on taking the antibiotics that she has prescribed. Observe and we’ll see. Right now, she won’t recommend of removing any, as it will be more painful for me. She even did the cleaning on the lower set only.

So, right now I’m still on antibiotics. Hopefully, i’ll get better soon….
