I had another wisdom tooth removed today.

I did the first one in my usual clinic in Tel-Aviv; the operation lasted over an hour, in the middle of it the young doctor called an older colleague, who took a look and said: "In the Sheba clinic they would have done it better" and went on with ripping my gums apart. For the second one i insisted on doing it at Sheba. I had to go through pretty weird hoops to get an appointment there, even though my dental insurance covers it. In any case it was worth it. It's pretty much like the difference between Caesarea and Jenin: in Tel-Aviv it was long and violent, in Sheba it was short, swift and nearly painless in comparison.

What? Why? Scared? Had your own teeth painfully removed? Have an operation anytime soon? Stop procrastinating, go to the doctor. In any case, two days passed and now it almost doesn't hurt.
