Hello all. Are you glad its Friday?
Well yesterday's root canal did not go as planned.
In fact after two hours patiently sitting in the chair,
my dentist tells me he is referring me to a specialist.
W H A T ? ? ?
You've got to be kidding?
Were the two statements I made to myself.
Yep, he was not able to complete the procedure.
It was too infected and he thought he would
compromise my bone structure.
Today I prepared myself for the worst.
I probably was going to lose my tooth.
The surgeon today was very thorough.
He explained every part of the procedure.
Stopped every now and then to make sure I was ok.
Showed me before and after xrays.
However this time after two hours,
not only did he finish the root canal,
but he saved my tooth.
I came home and slept for a bit,
and if not for the squirrel cheek, I would be fine.
I have to take amoxicillan and ibuprofen and
rinse my mouth twice a day with this medicine,
but will live the tale.
Unlike my dear fellow the skeleton key.
He is my latest creation, and I thought most
fitting to add into my boney tooth tale (post).
You see I lost quite a bit of bone from the infection,
and now it is filled with collagen.
Well friends, off to the store with Bob for a bit
to check up on things and then going out for dinner.
Skeletal Boney Blessings To All!
