Today we were just going to drill out the bad parts and make the tooth ready for a cap. Until we got in there..... What the heck is all this? I'm too young for dentures!
Seriously though, those last pictures were staged. I happen to have one of the best dentists in Southwest Iowa and he has a really good sense of humor. When I asked if I could get someone to take a picture for the blog, Dr. Scott was all for it and even helped ham it up a bit for your entertainment. We were able to get the tooth shaved down with no pain, and I have a shiny temporary cap while my permanent cap is being made. (So I don't have to go around with one stubby tooth which would have been kinda funny too.) I go back in two weeks for my real (fake) tooth, lets hope I don't have anymore problems. Oh, I'm happy to report... I was able to eat lunch without worrying about that pesky chunk of tooth popping off while I chew.
Here's to your dental health...
Love, Peace and Teeth.
