Hey, how are you?
Not so good. I have a bad toothache.
Ouch. Is it because of a cavity?
I don’t think so. I think I chipped my tooth.
How did you do that?
I tripped the other day and hit my mouth on the stair railing at home.
I hope the dentist can get it fixed easily.
Me too. What are you here for?
At my last cleaning, the dentist found some cavities. So he’s going to fill them today.
How many cavities do you have?
I have 3. Two on the left and 1 on the right.
So you’re going to have both sides of your face numbed. That’s going to look funny after you’re finished.
Tell me about it. At least it’s not right before lunch.
Haha! I can just image you trying to eat with a numb face.
Well you won’t be much better if the dentist does any work on your tooth.
That’s true. I hope he doesn’t have to pull the tooth.
I doubt it. If it’s just chipped, he can probably fix it with a cap or a crown.
Maybe I should get him to put a gold tooth in.
Haha! Now that would look really silly.
I know, I was just joking.
Personally, I’ve had enough experience with metal in my mouth. I had braces when I was younger.
I did too. Not a lot of fun.
No but it was worth it in the end.
Yeah. Straight teeth are nice.
They called my name. Hope you feel better soon.
Thanks. I’ll see you later.
