Shot the roof of my mouth with Novocaine (fucking OW!), then pretty much pulled the broken piece of the tooth out with hemostats. Not infected, but definitely irritated, and the possibility of a sinus infection is pretty high. There was blood, and it was mine.

The good news is that it looks like the break was outside of the bone enough that the tooth can be re-posted and a crown added. Unfortunately it will mean burning away some of my gum tissue (the joy inherent in those words somehow escapes me) to be able to do it, and it's a good three-part process. Start next monday.

In the meantime, a part of my head is numb, and I'm a little dizzy. I'm debating walking the dog, but I'm thinking I'm gonna take a few minutes first.
