Had to have some dental work done recently. Here's how it started: one night (a week ago from Wednesday), one of my teeth broke. I think it cracked while I was eating popcorn. Anyway, some time after that, a piece of my tooth just came off! So, the next morning, I called Dr. Lee, my former boss. I hoped he could look at my broken tooth. Fortunately, he was able to see me early, before his first patient came in. So I hightailed it to his office. Dr. Lee took a look in my mouth, surveyed the damage, then X-rayed the teeth. He'd noticed a hole in the tooth next to the one that had cracked. He found cavities in that tooth. Some food must have gotten stuck between those two teeth, and damaged them. He proposed a crown on the tooth that broke, and a filling in the other one. Now, my dad is a retired dentist, and Dr. Lee had taken over his practice. Dr. Lee suggested that Dad could do the work on me if he were available. If he couldn't do it, Dr. Lee would, but he'd have to charge me for it. Frankly, I didn't care who was doing the work. (I was sure that if Dr. Lee charged me, my folks would help me pay the bill.) Anyway, we called my dad about the situation, and he agreed to work on my teeth. We set up the appointment for the following Wednesday. The wait wasn't a problem, as my tooth wasn't in pain, and it wasn't cutting up the inside of my mouth. On that Wednesday, I went back to Dr. Lee's office, where Dad came and worked on my mouth.
Had to take a shot of Novocaine to numb the upper left side of my mouth. Anyway, the operation went smoothly. Fortunately, I didn't need a root canal. The filling was done, and the base for the crown was put in. The crown will be installed a week from Wednesday. The reason it wasn't put in right away is because Dad likes to wait before putting in a crown, just to see if there are any problems that need to be treated in the meantime. Which makes sense, because whatever problems there might be shouldn't be sealed in. Anyway, I'm glad I had this problem seen to, before things got too bad! In the future, I should try to floss more often!
