Root Canals and Ugly Pictures of Me. You want to see this. Okay, maybe you don't.

4.28.2011

Dun Dun Dun.

This was me last year getting my first root canal. I was a little scared.

I had to sit in the dreaded dentist chair again on Tuesday.

I had 3 root canals scheduled...but I just had two. Which means, I have to spend more money to get gassed all up again in a month or two. Oh the joy.

I gave it my best scrunchy scared bloated face.

You know you wish you looked this good. Angelina Jolie has some competition! HA HA! Totally kidding.

Hello world! :)

After the appointment, I went home and cuddled with my babies.

I find it hilarious when people's mouth's are numb. Especially my own.

Pretty great sad face yeah? It got me a vanilla shake that's for sure. :)

I find it hilarious when I look like complete and utter CRAP.

Yes, I'm "fake" sleeping. Piper isn't though.

They took great care of me :)

& I hope my ugly pictures make you feel a whole lot prettier. If not, then I hope that it made you smile.

I like to make people smile.

My mouth still hurts like a mother trucker.

AND if I'm MIA from the blog, it's for good reason. Promise.

But you can still follow me on twitter! @shalynnelson

Kees kees!


P.s.) & for the record...I do brush my teeth. I floss them too. I just have very, very, very bad genes. Promise. Three root canals down, one to go. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ :(

  11. OUCH! Glad to see that everything went well though! And seriously, your definition of looking like crap and mine must be totally different because even after all that dental work and a numb mouth you still look stinkin cute! Hope you get to feeling better!

  12. OOOOWWWW!!! that sounds like the least fun thing ever.

    I think I'd have a panic attack if I had to have one root canal.

    Oh and you don't look bad in even one of those pictures! not fair!!!!

  13. So sorry about your root canals and I know the money that can be spent at a dentists office, but hope you feel on the up and up very soon! Might I add that you looked adorable even through it all!

  15. I was at the dentist earlier and my mouth FINALLY stopped being numb. Totally the weirdest feeling and eating was such a task!

  16. Well, at least you survived it, hehehe. Root canal scares the heck out of people, but frankly it's quite a simple and common dental procedure. You can ask your dentist next time on less painful alternatives like sedation dentistry.
