I Hate Dentists No More

It has been 10 years since the last time I went to a dentist. Earlier, I had developed a terrible phobia since childhood towards the extreme pain caused my those govt clinic's dental nurses. I swore that I would let my teeth rot and drop off by themselves rather than get drilled by them!

Well recently my wife hypnotized me to discard away some bad habits from my subs conscious. Not knowing that the process actually managed to successfully stop my snacking habits and even my lifelong phobia towards dentists! Voila!

A student friend who just enrolled to the dental school explained to me that they are always desperate to look for patients for their 4th Year practical otherwise they would not be able to graduate. Anay just pitied them and remembered my uncle who died in Bangkok & pledged to donate his body to the medical students at Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok. I have blogged it HERE. So I am doing some charity too!



It has been many weeks when I would go to the torture chamber at their dental school on Fridays. They use the latest equipments!






They also use the best hi-tech gadgets like Star Wars weapons etc. There is also a mini screen monitor to view my tooth X-Rays! Goodness! I have over 10  BIG cavities to be done besides the full scaling, extractions and canal treatments. Sobs!




 I would cry and had to beg for injections to numb all my gums otherwise my legs will rise up in pain!





Look at me getting masked like this every week for 2-3 hours! My lips would tear open and my jaws would ache! Thank goodness I have finished 5 visits and have another 5 more to go. It costs only RM10 registration fee per visit. So cheap and good! Would you like to be a Guinea Pig too?

  2. My teeth is still alright. So far so good. No pain at all. Except I have a wisdom tooth, it grows out of shape. Dentist advised me to take it off long ago. Since it makes no pain on me, I just live with it until now. I won't want to take away my wisdom.

  4. Anay, why you have to wear your PSY's sunny when you have your teeth treated? Going to dentist also you want to look like Gangnam Style.

  6. I never had any phobia about dentists as I wanted to be one when I was younger.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't smart enough for a medical course. That time, the only fully paid (i.e. sponsored study) that accepted me was TESL and IT. ;p

    2. Root canal kena buat in stages lah Anay... kasi mati the urat slowly.

      I got gum infection. It bengkak for the first time in Japan last year and bengkak again in August this year. So, kasi mati the urat lah... Teeth still intact though.

  12. i think most people are afraid of going to the dentist.. i just went once last year and once this year to get treatment for one of my molar teeth..

    1. i have not seen a dentist since my primary school days.. back then we have a dentist in school and we have free dental treatment, but everyone just freak off when they were the lucky one to be called to the dentist room.. i have my teeth filled back then..

      Delete
    2. that's it and since then i have not been to a dentist until last year.. one of my molar teeth is giving me problems and cause very uncomfortable and spiking ache.. and so i went to the nearest dentist in MV to get it filled.. cost me RM300 for that!! gosh, so expensive..

      Delete
    3. i can say that the dentist was the worst i have ever met.. so rough and i don't think she has did a good job on the filling.. just a couple of months later, my tooth began to ache again and i can feel the filling actually torn off.. there goes my RM300 KNN!!!

      Delete
    4. so i went to another dentist and she told me i could not fill that tooth anymore cos it has cracked into two!! so i gotta have it extracted!! she was good, make sure i have enough of injections and numb enough so that i didn't feel her extracting my tooth out..

      Delete
    5. voila!! and with just a little bit of uncomfortableness, that split tooth was removed and i feel so good after that.. and it just cost me RM100!! KNN, if i knew that, i would just have it removed and save that RM300 charged by that lousy dentist at MV..

      Delete
    6. oooh, my nonsense is so long and can combine to make a post huh?? hehehehe..

  16. Never had this experience before wearing mask and sunglasses, that reminds me of MIB. Actually should follow MIB & should not let your wear the sunglasses so as to erase your memory and totally forget about the pain. hehe

    I don't think this dental visit was hilarious but all the writing was too funny.

    1. When I was a teenager, my mama sent me to a dentist monthly to get my crooked teeth done, by wearing braces for 2 years. Which meant, dates with my worst enemy for 24 months!

  21. No thanks for the guinea pig post, I had enough stories on the dental chair to share. If possible, I do not wish to visit them but I need to do checkup annually.

    One of my tooth has a big hole and the dentist recommended me to do root canal, I've been procrastinating for almost a year already.
