Dentist: Phase 2

Well, I chipped a molar last week while eating salad. It was a bit of tooth weakened by its old mercury filling. Some of you know I am phobic about dentists: All my life has been filled with soft enamel and not-so-competent dentists. I LOVE the dentist I have had for over 10 years now. His name is Fred, and I can barely understand what he says through his heavy accent, but he's good. He knows I'm so afraid I come to him on prescription tranquilizers, but he's gentle and doesn't judge me (as far as I can tell).

I went to him for the chip last week. He took x-rays, and then made an appointment for today to clean out the mercury filling and put in a temporary filling. It was harrowing -- I have a tiny mouth, and this was an upper back molar -- and now I have to go back tomorrow morning... The temp fell out before I even got home, and now I've got a huge hole on my tooth.
