I finally got my butt to the dentist for my crown on Saturday, after rescheduling two times. I woke up that morning feeling not too swift in the melon department, but I decided to stick it out.
During the procedure, I wore my sunglasses again. It helped a great deal. I think dentist office's should just offer them in the first place! In between x-rays, numbing, drilling and molding, I had the assistant sit me up, because I was hanging out in verp city with a nauseous tummy. There was a scary moment during my last molding where I thought I might chuck and my mouth was basically glued shut. I did some relaxation thoughts like "relax, release and let go" and I managed to get through it.
Afterward, I had a chilled ginger ale waiting for me in the car. I think next time I might listen to an affirmation or relaxation cd in the car during the drive there. I should have my final crown in three weeks. Hopefully that appointment will go better.
Here are my tips so far for a migraine chick getting through a dental appointment:
Use relaxation techniques.
Ask the assistant to sit you up during pauses.
Try not to spew on the dentist.
Have a ginger ale waiting in the car for afterwards.
