My alternate plan is to ignore it

Posted in Personal by Will on Thursday, July 10th, 2008 ~ 10pm

My brilliant plan to force myself to get my wisdom teeth out by allowing a cavity to form in one of them is feeling less than brilliant now, because I seem to have forgotten that I don’t like it when I force myself to do things! Well, this cavity has been forming for about four years now (started as just a little brown spot on the side, now it is a sensitive little brown spot on the side) so perhaps I can go another year or so. I should have come up with a better plan.

Yes, I know that “cavity” is not the medical term, and that the disintegration is more precisely called by the name of the main character on Sex & The City. But I am using the public vernacular.

    I really hope you’re getting that looked at sooner rather than later. Though deterioration is not the same as a cavity, if you have a cavity, it will begin to spread to your other teeth beneath the gum line if not properly dealt with.

    Yeah I just have no idea how to find a dentist. Tim uses the university, so there’s no advice there. I’m searching google for “reviews” of local dentists, but most have no reviews.

    I always heard good things about the one on the corner of Valmont and 28th. I mean, it’s the shittiest location and it’s still doing good business, so it must be okay at least. The one thing to watch out for is the holistic dentists who use roots and shit instead of anesthetics. They seem to be popular in Boulder (same with silly holistic veterinarians).

    This guy won best dentist from the Daily Camera last year. And if that’s too suspect, here’s the Boulder_CO LJ Community answer to best dentist specifically relating to removal of wisdom teeth.

    I just tried to visit a place, used to be called Canyon Dental but now that it is on Pearl (above Salon Sabah in that futuristic metal building) it is now Pearl Street Dental, a Dr. Higgins, but they were closed. Apparently Fridays are like Mondays for hairdressers. I’ll check it out Monday (I’ll look inside, see if it looks clean yet affordable, etc). Only cause for interest is that they’re above where I used to get my hair cut. Which appears to be as good a reason as any.

    Thank you, B! I will check those out. A newspaper endorsement is always good. Thank you so much for your detective work!
