A Doctor’s Appointment

Waiting, waiting and waiting

On 26th of May I decided to send an email to my orthodontist. I have told her that I prefer to give up my front tooth and go for the implant. I’m getting impatient and don’t want to wait for the periodontist appointment end of this year (October 2022). The periodontist already responded to my email telling me he will cancel the surgery. (I don’t think he is happy with my decision). My orthodontist sent me another email and told… Read More »Waiting, waiting and waiting

Returned from second orthodontist opinion

On April 21th I had my second opinion appointment at an orthodontist. After arriving in the ortho office I waited in the waiting room. I had to wait for more than 45 minutes! (You have to know I had to do this appointment during my working hours.) Each and every other patient was allowed to get in first 🙁 That way my appointment already started disappointing 🙁 Finally the doctor picked me up and asked me to get into the… Read More »Returned from second orthodontist opinion

Amalgam Before & After

As you have been reading on this blog I had my molar amalgam removal appointment yesterday. Things went fine and fluent! As promised I would share the before and after images… You can find them down below! The appointment went pretty fluent. My dentist used a green latex dental dam to protect me from swallowing amalgam particles. The aesthetic result is way better than expected. My next appointment with my general dentist will be in November. We discussed the progress… Read More »Amalgam Before & After

Tomorrow I get my Amalgam removed

Tomorrow I have a new appointment at my dentist to remove the Amalgam from one of my back molar teeth. To be honest I don’t 100% understand why it needs to be removed but I think it is related to the braces treatment I might have to start later on. I’m not soooo keen on getting the amalgam removed. Especially when you start reading about this topic and how many things that can go wrong. The procedure should be done… Read More »Tomorrow I get my Amalgam removed

Periodontal cleaning phase 2/2 & Orthodontist

Last Monday I had my second periodontal cleaning. This time the right-ride of my teeth (both top and bottom) have been treated. I was supposed to have my talk with the orthodontist before the perio treatement, but for some reason there was no time left to have the ortho-talk. The periodontist put my gums “a sleep” with some nasty syringe stings. I had to wait for 15 minutes to move on with the treatment. While I was waiting the assistant… Read More »Periodontal cleaning phase 2/2 & Orthodontist

Periodontal cleaning phase 1/2

Thursday 10th I had my first periodontal cleaning. To be honest I underestimated the procedure. Didn’t expect the anesthesia syringe to hurt like that. The periodontist gave me about 10 of them. He decided to start with the left half of both top and bottom teeth. After the syringes the treatment went well. The treatment took 45 minutes in total. Next Monday (on Valentin’s day!) I’ll receive the same periodontal treatment on the other half (right side) of my mouth.… Read More »Periodontal cleaning phase 1/2

First orthodontist appointment

Thursday 27th I experienced my first orthodontist appointment. That day I was pretty nervous but I’m happy I went through with it. The appointment took exactly 40 minutes and went pretty fine. I explained the ortho about my situation together with her assistant. She came to the conclusion I will have to start wearing braces. I asked her if it was possible to go for Invisalign but she quickly responded that this kind of braces wouldn’t work for me. I… Read More »First orthodontist appointment

2nd Ortho appointment rescheduled

Today I received a phone call of the ortho-office if it is possible to move my Ortho-appointment, scheduled on 10th of May, 2 weeks earlier. That’s fine to me 🙂 Updated my “Journey in appointments” page… I also added the cost involved for each and every appointment.

Unexpectedly invited at periodontist today!

Last month I made an appointment (scheduled 27th of January 2022) with a periodontist and orthodontist practice. Today I received a phone call if I can come to the periodontist today! (One of their patients cancelled) . Things suddenly move faster! Keep you posted! Edit: I have returned from the periodontist. He told me he will try to save my front tooth trying to avoid having to replace it with an implant. Next steps: Small treatment 1/2 Gum/bone cleaning Februari… Read More »Unexpectedly invited at periodontist today!

Returned from endodontologist last Thursday

I returned from endodontologist last Thursday. It looks like everything is fine with the root of my tooth number 21. The root canal treatment they did (almost 2 years ago) fixed the issue with the root of the tooth. I thought that was great news but now he will forward me to a periodontist. Something is still wrong with my bone next to tooth 21. I will explain more in detail later but this really doesn’t sound good. As you… Read More »Returned from endodontologist last Thursday
