Today’s dental experience has to be the easiest time I’ve had of things in, well, a long time.
I’m absolutely horrible to numb, but the last time I had some dental work done, we figured out that novacaine doesn’t do crap for me. My new guy used some different stuff, and after four or five injections, I was good and numb.
My temporary’s in place now, and it feels awful strange; however, the final won’t be metal, but rather porcelain fused to metal.
I amused the dental assistant by telling her what was wrong with some of the mechanical parts of the X-ray equipment [it wouldn’t hold position–worn bushings]. She was a bit bewildered, and then I admitted to being an engineer. She was also surprised that I’d done a bit of research and actually knew something about the procedure.
I’m beginning to feel that engineers are the intellectual equivalent of the Marines—once an engineer, always an engineer. :sigh:
Now, back to work…
