My Tooth And I


I have love/hate relationship with dentists, when I really think about it, its just a hate relationship. I hate going to the dentist since every time I go to dentist even if I’m not in pain I leave in pain. I have never left a dentist thinking, I’m happy I went. Maybe it was better for me that I went but I still don’t feel happy about it.

I have been feeling pain in my back tooth for the past couple of days, but I have been ignoring it hoping it goes away or goes somewhere else. With a tooth pain it becomes difficult to concentrate, and the pain I’m having is resulting from pressure. I don’t have a cavity thats for sure, I brush my teeth about 4 times a day, and I’m not much of sweets person. Its the pressure that hurts, and I’m delaying the trip to the dentist as much as possible, but at one point I’m going to have to go.

I don’t have a specific dentist that I go to in Kuwait, since I have run into problems with different dentists and sometimes they really screw up. At one point I didn’t go to a dentist for four years until I had to in the states, and to my luck I stumbled upon a fantastic compassionate dentist. But here I’m going to try my luck with one dentist maybe next week, it all depends how much pain I feel over the next couple of days. I’m very stubborn when it comes to the dentist.

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!


  1. I hate dentists so much you have no idea

  2. I hope it’s a she, and she is hot, maybe that would ease the pain :p
    I don’t mind the dentist because i LOVE taking good care of my teeth
    i know what you mean about the pain … but i’d rather suffer good pain and not bad pain

  3. Probably a wisdom tooth situation- welcome to the club. Try Balsam Clinic (opposite to AUK). Wild Alnassar owns it. It’s very expensive but he’s pretty good.

  4. Well, hopefully the pain goes & you get better soon…

  5. Sounds like a wisdom teeth thing. If it is I had a couple of wisdom teeth taken out by a Turkish doctor at Family Dental Clinic in Jabriya. He’s amazing and you don’t feel pain because they inject you with something to numb the area. And no the injection doesn’t hurt much either. I prefer a man for a wisdom tooth situation because I got the sense it actually takes muscle to yank the tooth out. Ok that sounds scary. But honestly all I felt was pressure and NOT PAIN. La t7aati wayed oo twakkal 3ala Alla. Think happy thoughts :P

  6. (to be accurate there was some pain later AFTER the teeth were yanked out but nothing too bad himdila)

  7. Do you prefer male or female dentists??? I have a lot of suggestions as I hate them so much I’ve been hopping all over Kuwait trying different dentists. Oh, and I usually take my ipod with me, anything to distract me from the noises and discomfort.

  8. advice coming from a dentist
    the longer u wait, the more complicated it gets, the more pain for you :)
    so go!

  9. Moey: I can understand!

    Laialy: No my dentist in the states was around 50 year old and very nice! That is why I liked her, she made sure not to mess with my mouth too much!

    Missy: I’m not sure about the Wisdom tooth and I can only see what happens! I will ask about that person for sure!

    chikapappi: I’m crossing my fingers!

    1001: I will check that place out as well, its just annoying finding someone good and you would still be nervous!

    Vixen: I dont care as long as they don’t cause me pain or mess up!

    eshda3wa: I know that, but still!!! Its a matter of how much pain I can take and for how long!!!! lol! I need to go, it is increasing a bit in pain sometimes!

  10. The guys I mentioned are STATES-material. He and his doctors lived in the states and top-notch (which explains the money drain). I9ara7a I have no complains, very clean, professional- shi’3il ajanib. 90% of his customers are Americans. I know you’ll like them =)

  11. Al-Maidan clinic are excellent, their best doctor is called Dr. Praveen (in Hawalli branch- Bierut Mall). Their number is 2242887/8.
    Also, – but I haven’t personally tried them – the dental division in Almuwasat Hospital have an excellent reputation, all my friends go there. The head doctor is Dr. Abdelwahab Al-Awadhi, they all say he’s reeeeeally good. Good Luck!

  12. Just reading your post, gave me a flashback of one of my teeth getting pulled out.. I can still remember it like it was yesterday.. ;( lol, Good luck bro!

    Marzouq I like Abha dental clinic in Al-Sha’ab Al-Bahri. They are friendly and efficient and I have liked all the doctors there.

  14. Missy: Then I will check them out, but having all American clients doesn’t necessarily mean they are good, but I will take your word for it!

    Vixen: hmmmm I think I’ve heard of them but there have been issues before regarding them. I heard some bad things, I think!

    N: looool! Thanks!

    jewaira: hmmmm I have this issue about places in Sha’ab! loool! I don’t know why, but I really do want some one good!
