Numb face

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Well, I got back from the dentist only a few minutes into the OSU football game.

So, that is good!!

However, I cannot easily eat anything yet. One side of my face is entirely numb, now four hours after the injection. My ear is numb!!

Anyway, I am very pleased that the root of my tooth was saved, and that my choice of a PFM crown is appropriate. I know that that crown requires more of my original tooth to be removed, but I am OK with that. I have a PFM for a front tooth (now 30 years old), and all is still well.

I go back in 2.5 weeks to get the permanent crown.

Meanwhile, I await a fully functioning face!!

    He works on Saturday? Wow. My dentist doesn't work even all the weekdays.
    I totally relate to the numb ear. Wait until it begins to wear off and is tingly! I hope your game will distract you sufficiently :-)
