What a pain
I left Tempe, AZ and headed back to Yuma for another dentist appointment. After I had my wisdom tooth pulled on Mar 6 I continued to have pain whenever I drank any cold/hot liquids or ate ice cream. I had call Dr Eva’s office and mentioned that I was still getting pain. They suggested that it was only temporary and that I could take Ibuprofen to ease the pain. The Ibuprofen did help with the pain but about 4 hours later I would have to take another one.
I was hoping that it was only temporary but it was not going to go away. I then called Dr. Eva’s office again and scheduled an appointment. So I decided to stay at the Paradise Casino parking lot since it was close to Algadones. I was in her office at 8:00am and was her first appointment. She looked at the space where my wisdom tooth was extracted to see if there was any problem. She assured me that the area around the wisdom tooth had healed properly, but thought that the pain was coming from another tooth.
She called Dr Hernandez office which was right next door to her office and set up an appointment within an hour for him to see me. He specializes in root canals and he would find out what tooth was bothering me
The problem was a cracked tooth very near my missing wisdom tooth. I inquired as to how a tooth gets cracked and he gave me an answer that seems to fit us retired folks. OLD AGE! Any way he performed a root canal on the tooth and I was out the door in no time. After my mouth calmed down from the Novacaine I noticed that I no longer had any pain. Great! Now an ice cold beer tastes delicious!!!
I have to return to him next Tuesday and his office also made an appointment with Dr. Eva’s office for me to see her after. Hopefully I will be out of there on Tuesday and headed out of town.
I spent a whole lot more then I budgeted for dental, but it was still much cheaper then having it done in the US. Plus I wanted to make sure I didn’t have any problems this summer while camp hosting.
The temps were running in the mid 80’s. A couple of days it was very windy which was great since it cooled everything down.
Chica an`d I took a walk around the area a bit. You can see the Colorado River with a nice little park.
The RV parking lot is rather barren and not too many people left.
