Dental News

Dental News....or an update on the tooth that is trying to self eject now and not wait to be extracted.

The damn thing got really loose as I was eating last night. So much so, I only was able to eat about half of my dinner. It did stay in last night though this morning it is clearly way looser. I had set my alarm  to be able to call in when the office for the dentist opened at 7:30 and did so.

Told them the issue and they called the oral surgeon people and then called me back. I am to be at the oral surgeon place at 12:45 to do paperwork and then they will "work me in." Code for come spend the afternoon with us. They will numb the area and remove the tooth that wants to leave the plane now. While they have me in they may look at the others or not as it all depends on how things work out.

In theory, I should be able to drive myself and will be doing that. In theory, this should go off without any issues other than being there awhile. I am guessing I will be filling prescriptions for antibiotics and pain pills on the way home.

Not looking forward to this at all. But, at least it is today and not Saturday afternoon at five.

Thank you, sir.

Dental issues aren't fun, as I know from personal experience (and I'm certain other readers of your blog also know), but I'm glad this ordeal--and they're always ordeals--will bring you some relief, whether immediately or eventually.

Praying for your health, oral and overall.

At our house things like this usually happen about six on Friday evening. Glad you are being seen today.

I was seen, told it would be safer to do the surgery and take them all at one time instead of just dealing with the one today, so at eleven tomorrow they take all six of the bad teeth. Not sure which nurse gets to put them on a string and wear them like a necklace. Wanted to ask and was afraid to.
