I feel like I got sucker punched!

So a word to the wise, if you can avoid a cavity in your back teeth, do it! I went to the dentist yesterday to have a cavity filled that was in the very back of my mouth. As if that weren't bad enough it was also on the top. My dentist tells me that this is the worst place to get a cavity cause its just so hard to get to. So there I lay, trying my hardest not to gag (Man they put a lot of stuff in your mouth) and my dentist is pulling on my lip trying to get it out of the way, while his assistant pulls on the other side of my mouth so that she can do what she needs to do. I felt pretty good after I left. I finally had all of my dental work done, but then the numb started to go away. Lets just say it feels like someone punched me in the jaw. Not only did I get a bruise, but I'm all swollen and last night I could only open my mouth about 1/2 an inch. It made dinner awful painful (thank you Cory for bringing home SOFT food to eat). What a joy! So let me just close by saying don't forget those teeth in the back! BRUSH BRUSH BRUSH!!
