Dentist update

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Well, the tooth is needed to break it to get it out, as I still have a wisdom tooth under the gum on that side which was making it harder to move the tooth that needed pulling. In the process, the crown on the tooth in front of the tooth I was having pulled came off and had to be reglued. Now THAT tooth feels weird and it's driving me nuts. Didn't have a lot of bleeding, which is good, and I've been using an ice pack periodically since I got home, as well as ibuprofen and vicodin.
When the hygienist showed me my tooth, I could see why it was stubborn--3/4 inch long... I should have kept it to scare the crap out of the grandkids---"See what happens if you don't take care of your teeth???" I wonder what the tooth fairy would have given me for it? Sure worth a lot more than a dime...
But at least it only cost me $125 instead of $600. That extra $475 will help pay for the gutters we have to have put on the house next week.

    Whew! Bet you're glad that's over! Maybe the re-glued crown won't feel weird once your mouth is healed; hope so!

I had to have an abcess treated a few years ago and got to watch (via tv monitor) as they filleted my gum. Since it was the end of October, I asked the surgeon if he'd print out a few still shots to put in trick-or-treaters' bags. He declined. Spoil sport!

    Glad you have gotten it out! I understand the long roots as i had one like that. My teeth have a soft enamel and the meds. I take have eroded that and thus losing teeth! Take care and I hope you have a good night's sleep!!
