Happy! Toothache gone!

This morning I went to my dentist High School buddy and got my very old filling replaced. He told me there was a large cavity under the filling. He administered a little anesthesia. I did not feel a thing and he was so fast, I could not even believe it, when it was over. Yay! From now on, he is my dentist.

I was worried that it would be a root canal but, that did not happen so I am really really happy. It only cost me USD 50 which is like nothing when compared to the US prices. His clinic is in a very nice and popular neighborhood.

The effect of the anesthesia is wearing off and I am now feeling a bit of pain but, that is expected. I usually get away without taking a pain pill.

I am so glad, I acted fast.


  1. If you had waited longer, it probably would have been a root canal. After a filling and when the anesthesia wears off, I am never in pain. I would have spent several hundred for having the filling replaced. I will come to Turkey for all my dental work...lol. My dentist needs to replace a few broken fillings and will replace all my amalgam fillings with white stuff.

  2. I'm glad you went and got it taken care of. That is cheap compared to here! That would have cost a couple hundred in the States

  3. I'm with Linda - I'm coming to see your friend for any dental work! He sounds fab. Fortunately, the past few years have been easy visits for me, but I know it won't last (age, etc). I have a check up on Friday afternoon and my fingers are crossed all is well. Glad it got taken care of so quickly and you have no more pain! x
