I am writing this today whilst still under the influence.
My much feared visit to the dentist has resulted in the loss of two teeth. Not as bad as I feared I really expected to lose the three on that side.
They were decayed down into the gum and were not able to be saved.
I know it was my own fault, I hadn’t set foot in a dental surgery for nearly 10 years.
My mind may be numbed by the anesthetic used, my mouth certainly is, however it was a comparatively painless experience. (LOL. Or I would if I could.)
I’m sure the pain level will increase later so I’m bypassing BTD today and taking whatever I need to get through today and tonight (Paracetamol and Codeine). I’m drinking plenty of fluids, maintaining my increased vitamin C and Echinacea intake, all to help minimize the risk of infection and speed the healing process.
It’s fixed the immediate problem anyway and now I have to go back in about a month for a full examination and to make a decision about what to do with my gaping cavity.
At least vegetarian food is soft so I won’t have to chew too hard today and I’ve got some left over soup which I’ll puree to eat later.
