I’ve never had a crown before so I don’t know what to expect.
I’ve been back to the dentist once a week for 4 weeks now (actually there was a two week break between my last appointment). I was told there were another 2 sessions to go.
The hole they’re digging into my tooth is pretty deep - right into the route, so I expect it to be long and painful. But 6 sessions seems like a lot to me.
I just got back from my 3:30 appointment and told them I’ll be going back on the 19th of June. So the dentist told me he’d give me the materials and I could take it back to Australia and get it done there.
Hao bu bao?
I gave a long silence and turned my head to the side and smiled meaning “bu hao”, and they worked out a schedule where to fit me in. I thought it wouldn’t be too hard - only 2 more sessions, right? But then they said they said a whole bunch of stuff which I didn’t quite comprehend. I think they said I actually have 4 more sessions and they have to do some scheduling to get it all done before I go back.
Anyway, after that 3:00 appointment, I’m going back for another appointment today at 5:15.
Is this all normal? They’re not really explaining stuff properly because I think they think I won’t understand. Which is fair enough, I mess up a lot in Chinese, but I can still understand what’s going on.
This isn’t someone freaking out - this is someone going to a dentist and not knowing what the hell is going on just getting drilled into and xrayed once a week. It would be kind of fun to know exactly what’s going on. Any thoughts?
