See my lovely cavity/filling ridden mouth? I was trying to see if I could get a photo of the new hole I am feeling in my tooth but I couldn't. Guess my mouth doesn't open that wide....ha! I tried!
I am so thankful that I don't have excruciating sharp pain in the area where the filling fell out. I was so nervous the first time I brushed my teeth, drank coffee, ate yogurt....I thought I may go through the roof with shock but nope ~nothing~whew!! There is a dull ache just telling me something is wrong but a little ibuprofen can take away any dull ache right?
And on that note .... Guess where I will be at 9:50 tomorrow morning??? If you said at the dentist you were correct. Probably getting an X-ray and deciding whether to refill the gap or pull the whole tooth...it is the wisdom tooth I think but I will know for sure tomorrow.
FUN FUN FUN
*****Just got back from my appt. (As you see above the appt. was for 9:50 and its now 12:30) My dentist decided I should have it pulled b/c it seems to have cracked. Lucky for me the "other office to pull it was right next door" AND better yet a doctor had an opening to do it asap!! 24 hours of no exercise, no straws, and no hard stuff......I can handle that......its the wait for the Novicain swelling to go down and the bleeding to stop that's annoying. ;-) ********
