Crunch…Crunch…

It’s the sounds that are the worst, I think.

I had two wisdom teeth pulled out this morning – top and bottom, right side. It was about 90% pain-free. There were a few moments of pain, not including the needles – they always hurt. Aside from the physical discomfort though, it really is the sounds.

Like a crunching, cracking, crushing sound. I was paying a little more attention, and I’m pretty sure that he twists as he starts to pull. I think the crunching sounds might be when the bond breaks between the tooth and the bone it’s growing out of. Or maybe it’s the tooth getting crushed by the pliers? Either way, the sound is nasty.

Anyhow, that was earlier. Now there’s just an aching sensation.
