In the Dentist’s Chair

13 Mar

Hands up anyone who doesn’t cringe at the prospects of a stint in the dentist’s chair.

Any stalwarts? Then I for one salute you!

If you want to slow down time, then book a dental appointment. I know of few other places where a minute can seem like an hour.

This morning, I had plenty of time to consider it all.

I don’t know what was the most revolting: the numbness that overtook my jaw as well as my gums; the irritating,uncontrollable water that trickled here and there;  the drill’s vibration;  the monotonous, whirring noise; the feeling of a plasticine-like mass in my mouth; or the knowledge that I’d be back again next week….

Technology has enabled man to land on the moon. Why can’t it figure out a way to have dentistry by proxy?
