Does Wisdom follow the 'Wisdom Tooth'?



Those knowing me close are acquainted with the fact that I have poor immunity. Specifically when the thing comes to oral health (oral here refers to teeth, gums, tongue, mouth and not otherwise). After every few weeks, something or the other comes up troubling me to speak or eat. I have gone through numerous "root canals", gum treatments and molar problems to an extent that every time I have to find a new dentist for I feel embarrassed visiting the same ever since one bantered me to get an all new denture instead. (no comments Smile18.com )
This time it is my swollen gum and inner cheek at the extreme end of the lower jaw on the right side. I have been trying to get an appointment with the dentist in the neighbourhood, (I have been missing the clinic times since past few days for my beloved sleep restrains me to be up for that) failing which I showed up there yesterday without one. After what seemed to be hours of waiting (why don't they include "queuing theory" on MBBS, BDS syllabi?), ultimately mera number aa hi gaya.

Though I was aware of what the problem was, this problem has been occuring time and again for the past one year now. I remember when it came up first time, to my surprise the doctor tried to conceal a laugh. I asked what was wrong, he told me that my appearing wisdom tooth on the upper jaw was disturbing the lower gum causing it to swell. Doctor ki hassi ho gayi and meri band baj rahi thi. The result was the drill machine nipping the evil in the bud (grinding the tooth a li'l bit to relieve the gum). Since then, it grows up every 2-3 months and I have to visit the dreaded thing again. At times I wonder aur kitna bada hoga!!




Dentists are inhuman I must say. I aint saying this, but my experience with hell load of them is saying. They bend into your mouth and consider it a wrestling rink and your tooth their opponent.. I remember once when I had to get one of roots pulled out (extra growth), the dentist was a lady doctor, (ek foonk ki maar i.e. could be blown away with one exhale- I have funny categories to describe physical appearance of people, my fave being 'ek horn ki maar'- used it for our colony watchman) she had put her whole strength for three consecutive days failing to the the required and ultimately her husband (ek thappar/slap ki maar) had to pull it out. Adding a compliment "Sher jaise daant hain" (I am a Leo though Smile18.com ).



But the whole point is why is it called Wisdom tooth when it has not brought any wisdom to me?

No, I'll be 25 too soon, but is wisdom there with me, I doubt it seriously. 3 of my wisdom tooth have already appeared, may be I have to wait for the fourth one to be wise enough.

The idea struck to me when I were upside down for the "Sarvaang aasan" with my coach's help (yes the same gym instructor who is my eye candy these days Smile18.com). May be b'cuz the rushing blood would have hit the strings of my brain causing it to open up after the long time of non usage.


Shortly after the torture at the dentist, plus compensating for the 'anti socializing movement' I've been indulged into for past few days, decided to pamper myself and showed up at the exquisite saloon of the town. Got myself full body massaged, manicure, pedicure, including a 'detoxifying skin clean up'. I am feeling light and good. Smile18.com

I've decided to 'Re'-discover myself (for I've lost the count whichth time decided it).

And they say wisdom follows the wisdom tooth. Does it seem like so after reading my blog??

P.S.
The scariest thing on the planet is the very comfortable appearing "Dentist's Chair". I am a strong believer of the marketing and consumer behavior theory "Looks are deceptive".

Reminds me of a joke:
When the dentist bent inside a lady patients mouth with a drilling machine in his hand, she clutched his balls tightly. Embarrassed doctor said to the lady "Ma'am you are aware of what you are doing. Aint you?" The lady replied "Yes. This is to remind you that we are both not going to hurt each other".

Dhanya said...

Wisdom doesn't necessarily follow the wisdom tooth. If it did, I would have been considered wise ages ago ;)

I just feel so 'blessed' that mine didn't give any probs. I have witnessed the pain some people go through (including my mom).. no thanks to their teeth!

Pesto Sauce said...

I too got my wisdom tooth pulled out recently. The dentist charged a whopping 2500 bucks

But the whole point is why is it called Wisdom tooth when it has not brought any wisdom to me?

I worry abt it every alternate day.. :)

Enjoyed the post.....

My advice - Mission dulhan doondho - Search for a dentist.. u can save a lot of money... Sometimes it could work out to be as simple as that - ek thappar ki maar .. Think over .. :P

Cheers..!!

Read it. :)

Good 'un buddy... Loved it. :D

And guess who's back? :)

Peace. Be well.

Chriz said...

more wisdom filled posts to follow?

when u talked about ORAL, i thought about mouth, teeth and gums only.. what did you mean by OTHERWISE?

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

Richa,

Atlast i am here to read this post , which was long pending..

I had this doubt 8 months back when my wisdome tooth gave pain to my lower gums, but by then i hadnt started blogging, for i am just 6 month old blogger.

I agree with your pain for tooth, but tooth are so tough, that one has to act tough with them. isn't?

I can clearly see that you got no additional wisdom after your wisdome tooth chapter, in your post at least :-P

Keep writing.
Cheers...

enchantinganki said...

i am getting 4 wisdom tooth simaltaneously and if tats not enough i still have my 2 milk teeths....i am still alive and dont have to visit d doc..wats say?

riddhi said...

wisdom tooth.. i remember having false alarms for them all of the time.. touchwood i have never been to a dentist so far.. but at times my jaw hurts and from past 4years i have been saying it must be the wisdom tooth.. and whenever i blurt it out in front of friends they laugh it off saying"wisdom" and you.. haha daanto mein hi aasakti hai tere.. dimag ki kami shayad wahan puri hojaye..
may be the same is the case with u.. u have really 'wise' tooth.. :)

take care richh..
As ogden Nash said "It is going to hurt just a little bit" and going to dentist is a 'vivious' circle remember.. so just stick to one/.. don't shy away.. abey u r paying them..and then waiting in long queues as well
