Beauty Talk | Wisdom Teeth Removal Munich

Some of you are certainly still in store for a wisdom tooth operation. If you are lucky, you may keep your wisdom teeth or they have already been extracted. In the beginning, I thought a wisdom tooth operation would be harmless and I would easily cope with it. But in the end, it was a more important intervention than I had expected. Here more about it.

Actually, it was not absolutely necessary to have my wisdom teeth immediately removed. However, I wanted to avoid a painful inflammation and decided to have them extracted before summer. Many orthodontists do not extract wisdom teeth in the summer, unless it is an urgent case. I got my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. med. dent. Andreas Detsch at Dr. Dannemann‘s Dental clinic.

At my first appointment, Dr. Detsch informed me in detail about the operation, its possible complications and potential aftereffects. My teeth were well positioned and had already penetrated, so the intervention should not last long. The following Monday, I was operated at about lunchtime. When the time for the intervention arrived, I was more nervous than expected and I trembled. The anesthetic shot is supposedly the most painful one. I got a preliminary anesthesia, thanks to which I scarcely felt the actual shot. Ultimately, all four wisdom teeth were operated within thirty minutes. It is a matter of taste, whether you wish or not to notice everything. The studio offers also a kind of general anesthesia, which I refused. Thus, I could feel the pressure and could follow what instruments were used for the operation. But don’t worry, it is not as bad as that. In the end, my wounds were sewn and I could go home. A subsequent check the next day and a week later the filaments were extracted. The healing would take up to six weeks.

Cost of wisdom tooth operation

In case of local anesthesia, the cost is borne by the insurance company in Germany, whereas general anesthesia and other extras have to be paid by the patient. A general anesthesia is really only required for complicated cases. General anesthesia decelerates the healing process and you should be aware of the probability not to wake up anymore.

Aftereffects

The intervention was more important than I had imagined. Compared to the aftereffects, the operation was like walking in the park. The first two days I cooled both cheeks thoroughly and had almost no swellings. Only the left cheek was a little swollen. I had seen much bigger swellings in the clinic.

Drugged up to the eyeballs with Ibuprofen and Novalgin drops, I had almost no pains. However,  I never slept through without pains the first week. Without cooling, I could not fall asleep. Due to the strait in my jawbone, it was also difficult to thoroughly clean the wound in the lower jaw and I was afraid of an inflammation, which, fortunately, did not happen…

What to eat after a wisdom tooth operation

Eating was really a challenge for me, since I am a passionate gourmet, as you know. No milk products, no fruit, except bananas, only boiled tomatoes and so on. Because of the operation, you can’t open your jaws widely and, thus, I had to nourish only on smoothies.

After some days, I tried to eat normally, but had to use time and again the pureeing tool. I ate everything cold and mainly dishes I could swallow without chewing and which did not get bogged in the wounds. Just at that time, my mixer broke, and I was glad, when the new Vitamix Mixer finally arrived.

Those were the dishes I ate:

  • Breakfast
    • Avocado – Banana – Oatflakes Smoothie
    • Scrambled eggs (optionally with minced salmon ) – Mind the pepper
    • Soy-yogurt with oatflakes
  • Lunch and Dinner
    • Small soft noodles with wild garlic pesto
    • Small pureed noodles with minced meat
    • Mashed potatoes with Avocado
    • Well pureed cold Pepperonata from the day before
    • Babyfood (so unsalted – how can babies eat that?)
    • Ravioli

 Pastime

The first four days were really horrible, as I was not in the mood to do anything. Unfortunately, I was too weak to leave my home for a walk, as I felt that throbbing at every step. Hence, I better stayed at home. I watched almost all series of Night out with the Chefs of Munchies You Tube Channel. Yes, I tortured myself a bit and watched video clips about food and good dishes.

Conclusion

I am so glad that I had all four teethes extracted at the same time. Despite the slow healing process, which may vary from person to person, I recommend having all four teethes extracted at the same time, and, I can warmly commend the Dr. Dannemann clinic to you.

I wish you a wonderful day!

The little red dress

How could I save these pictures forever? These are probably some of my favorites in a while. I see that now because I’d just cut my hair shorter back then. Oh and that red dress is definitely such an eye-catcher! Although I’m trying not to buy anything from cheap brands, I’m absolutely in love with this one from H&M. I’m not sure if they still have it! Anyways… Just a quick post today. I’ve got lots of work to do before I’ll head down to Lago di Garda for a couple of days.

10 things I hate about Karpathos

[Advertisement] Upon invitation by Visit.Greece.

To be honest, I didn’t want to write this article. Due to the fact that I’ve already shown you some glimpses of Karpathos, there is no way back. Karpathos has never been on my list – now I know why I should’ve never gone there! Here are 10 reasons to visit Karpathos ten things I hated about Karpathos…

… not having a boat license

I mean, we could’ve just swum to the dream bays. Or just pretend for then being rescued and brought to the closest bay. I hated not to have a boat license to explore the island on our own. The swimming pool blue water was a dream and I wanted to jump into the water all the time.

… too many small cute villages

Olympus, Diafani, Lefkos, Arkassas – there are too many idyllic villages to choose where to stay.

… the serpentine roads

I love to drive – even more on curvy streets! Driving on bumpy roads with a small car – not a good idea! Euromoto Karpathos should’ve given us a jeep instead. Of course, all the small and cute bays were located at the end of rough roads. Good thing is that Amandine was able to exercise her manual transmission skills while I tried to be patient. Nonetheless, I think I was a good teacher!

… not being able to buy some land on Karpathos

I just don’t understand why Karpathos is still a secret spot in Greece. Unfortunately, the Karpathians already know that their island is going to be hyped a lot within a couple of years. Therefore, it’s not so easy to find some land for a reasonable price. We’ll come back in October / November to look for more land. I hate that this island is going to rob all our money!

… Greek food all day long

Karpathian cheese, Makarounes, Greek salad, the dry bread with tomatoes and salad, tsatsiki and delicious goat meat … I know that I would look like a Greek goddess after some weeks. Well, good thing is that the ideal of beauty is different in Greece. Greek men love curves!

… doing sport on the island

Especially the South of Karpathos is a popular spot for sport-addicted people. The wind is stronger here and you’ll find many windsurfers on the water. The neighbor bays are also perfect for kitesurfing. My times of just laying on the beach are definitely over. Active vacations are on now! A bike tour of several hours at dawn was great. I loved sitting on the mountain bike again after several years. I hate that Karpathos has so many more great mountain bike trails to discover.

… the Greek Cappuccino Freddo

I started to drink more coffee again in Greece. Especially on hot days, the Greek love to drink everything iced. I loved to start the morning with a refreshing Cappuccino Freddo or Latte Macchiato Freddo. However, I hate the fact that I now try to explain at every bar how I’d like my Cappuccino Freddo – just like in Greece.

… people are too friendly

The people we’ve met were all so nice that it made it even harder to leave the island. No wonder that people come back here all the time. I fear that we’ve also got into the ban of Karpathos.

… we had to say goodbye!

Unfortunately, the island is quite too far to go there every weekend. From Munich, you’ll have to fly over Athens with Aegean. On the other hand, I can fly directly from Verona when I’m in Bolzano. One more reason to buy some land there!

Lunch at The Spice Bazaar – Restaurants in Munich

unpaid Advertisement / unbezahlte Anzeige*

Finding a great lunch spot in the old town of Munich is not so easy. As much as I love the traditional Bavarian restaurants in Munich, most of them are way too touristic nowadays. But we’re quite far from traditional German food today, so let’s head to the Orient – the great The Spice Bazaar on Square Marstallplatz.

The Spice Bazaar

Heavy wooden tables, golden lamps and colorful walls. The open space of The Spice Bazaar reminds me of some chic restaurants in New York. I’m absolutely in love with the design itself. However, I wouldn’t think of an oriental restaurant when coming here. Nevertheless, the concept says oriental, Mediterranean with a twist of traditional interpretation of food. One thing is sure: the restaurant enriches Munich’s gastronomy!

The Spice Bazaar
Drinks & Food

One of my friends suggested the restaurant for lunch, so we combined it with a little business meeting. Speaking of which, The Spice Bazaar offers a light and uncomplicated business lunch each day. On the menu, you’ll find a  variation of oriental salads, either vegetarian (10,50€) or with fish and meat (15,50€). Moreover, you’ll find a daily changing soup (7,50€) or manti filled with a potato-chard filling (12,50€). I went for a salad variation of three with eggplants, lentils and beans, which was very good. The manti were a little bit too salty but I still recommend them.
Good thing here is also that they only serve organic meat and eggs. If you’re more interested about where their products come from, you’ll find the information on the menu.

  • Brunch recommendation: The Spice Bazaar offers a great weekend brunch – nutty fattoush, Bazaar roastbeef, oriental graved salmon, shakshuka, hamshuka and more. Sounds super delicious, right? I’ll have to try that next time.

RÉsumÉ

The Spice Bazaar is a great choice for a relaxing dinner. Keep in mind that the restaurant is always super packed in the evening. Therefore, I highly recommend to book a table in advance. If fancying only a drink at the bar, I can tell that their orientalic-style choice of cocktails also sounded inviting. I’ll definitely come back here for dinner and drinks!

Einladen ist das neue Ausgehen! Sizilianischer Flair zuhause {+Rezept}

{Advertisement / Anzeige*}

Einladen ist das neue Ausgehen! Das Essen im Restaurant ist immer etwas Besonderes, doch genau so schön kann eine Einladung sein. Vor kurzem habe ich zu einer riesen Tavolata (ital. Tafel) mit feinsten italienischen Spezialitäten eingeladen. Am Tag zuvor war ich zuhause in Italien und habe dort das Interspar (Despar/Aspiag) fast leer geräumt: italienischer Aufschnitt – Coppa, Prosciutto Crudo, Bresaola, Levoni, Parmigiano, getrocknete Tomaten, Sardellen, Artischoken-Creme und vieles mehr. Dazu habe ich leckeres Weißbrot gebacken (das Rezept muss ich euch noch unbedingt geben!). Ein gelungener Abend mit lieben Gästen!

…macht’s wie die Sizilianer – Averna Amaro Siciliano

Und genau das ist es, was ich so gerne am Einladen mag. Noch besser sind spontane Einladungen. Genau das versprüht auch die sizilianische Lebensart: Spontanität, Einfachheit, Gelassenheit. Die Mamma steht immer am Herd und verwöhnt ihre Söhne und natürlich auch die restliche Familie. Freunde sind immer willkommen. Ein Teller Pasta ist auch für unerwartete Gäste immer vorhanden. Die Tischdecke ist nicht perfekt gebügelt, Servietten und Geschirr passen nicht zusammen – non fa niente! Hauptsache man ist und isst beisammen! Es wird viel gelacht und nach dem Essen gibt’s natürlich immer einen Digestif! Papà, porta l’Averna!

Ihr seid bestimmt mit den italienischen Likören (meistens als Digestif bekannt) vertraut. Viele von ihnen sind leider sehr bitter. Averna hingegen ist ein feiner Kräuterlikör, der leicht ins Süßliche geht. Ein Teller Pasta und im Anschluss einen leckeren, gekühlten Averna – perfekte Harmonie!

  • Tipp: Zitronensaft einfrieren und mit Averna servieren, dazu noch eine Scheibe Zitrone. Kräuter wie Rosmarin, Thymian, Basilikum, Minze, Lavendel oder Oregano passen auch super dazu! Wer mag, kann den Averna mit etwas Wasser verlängern.

Auch bei meiner italienischen Serata passte er super. Toll ist, dass das Essen nicht immer stundenlang vorbereitet werden muss. Ein einfacher Teller Nudeln tut es da auch. Und Pasta passt immer! Am liebsten mag ich sie al dente und mit viel Soße.

Bei meiner Suche nach einem passenden Rezept bin ich auf dieses einfache sizilianische Gericht gestoßen – Conchiglie alla crema di zucchine, capperi e acciughe. Wenn ihr Kapern, Sardellen und Zucchini mögt, ist es genau das Richtige für euch. Ich empfehle euch sehr, es nachzukochen.

Rezept CONCHIGLIE MIT ZUCCHINI-KAPERN-SARDELLEN-CREME
ALS DIGESTIF: AVERNA

ZUTATEN (2 Personen)

  • 250gr Conchiglie (schmeckt genauso gut mit Spaghetti)
