The tooth is out!

My dentist wanted to root fill it, but it was so filled already it might have shattered while he was working, or it might have continued to cause problems, so I asked him to just take it out. If it's not there, it can't hurt, right?

He was wonderful - explained everything, didn't hurt more than necessary, took great care of me. Now I have a big crater in my mouth, but that will heal over. It's sore, but it's bound to be, and the pain is steady, rather than the random pain that the tooth gave me before. I can deal with that.

So yay for me being a big brave girl! *dances*


And thank you so much to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. It was a bit overcast by knowing that I had to have the tooth out the next day, but I did have a nice day. I got a new guitar during the summer, so that was my present. And my stepson gave me a beautiful leather-bound, handmade journal. It's too gorgeous to write in!

I'm sooo sorry that I missed your b-day! I thought about your b-day a few days before Sunday, but on Sunday I forgot!!! :(
Happy belated B-day!!! I'm glad to hear that you had a great day!

Also good to hear that your tooth-disaster is over.
Had the same problem last year! My dentist root-filled it.
your dentist sounds so nice. Too bad he lives in GB... hm, maybe I could fly in for every appointment.. *g*
