When I had my teeth cleaned earlier this year, my dentist informed me that my body was reabsorbing one tooth. He sent me to an oral surgeon who removed that tooth (a molar) and implanted some cadaver bone to build up my jaw. Now it's time to have him implant the screw in my jaw in prep for my dentist to attach a new tooth (early next year). I HATE, HATE, HATE mouth pain, and not being able to eat right. BUT, I'm making plans for nourishment. I have a box of Instant Breakfasts, will be able to eat some soup, jello, and other non-chewed food the first few days. For pain? Well, the last time, the surgeon gave me Vicodin. :D That's the only bright spot.
THANK YOU! all who wrote to me. Thank you for the encouragement and especially thank you for the prayer. I know prayer changes people and things.
