01:24 pm - Dental Oddity
I was going to go into the dentist today - a tooth with a large filling had gotten a bit temperature sensitive for a couple of days, and then started hurting quite a lot yesterday. I waited for a bit, because this had happened once before, with a new filling in another tooth, and then vanished. I woke up today, and it was again almost entirely better. In the previous case, I know that i bruised the tooth, and given what happened was nearly identical, I am assuming the same thing happened here. I have a fairly significant distrust of human biology (aka hypochondria), but it does seem to work out most of the time.

In less medical & self-interested news, here's an absolutely wonderful post by Becca about names for out two new cats.

Ouch. I am glad that it got better on its own!

Often, for me, even cavities that didn't hurt *before* being filled tend to hurt *after* being filled. Along with temperature/sugar/other sensitivities appearing only post-filling. Sometimes it goes down over time, but my one tooth is still bothering me when sugar gets on it even months after having it filled. :(

*nods* I've never had a cavity that hurt before it was filled. Afterwards, I've had several. Of course, much of that is due to modern dental care, where they get to cavities well before they become large and painful.
