Like Pulling Teeth
Tomorrow morning, I am having one of my wisdom teeth extracted. Never endured this before....just going with a *local* because it's $163 cheaper and so that I can drive myself home.
My son asked me why they were pulling the tooth.
Answering honestly I said because *experts* tell me it needs to come out....and because the people that do it need money.
[Four years ago, some oral surgeon down in Charlotte, NC told me that I NEEDED all four pulled. I asked him to explain; he tried but was completely unintelligible; I called him on it; he grew furious I guess because I just didn't blindly accept his recommendation; I essentially called him an idiot to his face and walked out triumphantly. Since then, I've seen two other oral surgeons; both of them only recommended a single tooth extraction. I may not know a lick about dentistry, but for me, quacks and Morons are easily diagnosed.]
