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.

relax into the painkillers, and ask for nitrous. record your dreams if you can. that's what dentistry is good for. (that and not dying early from hideous infections.)

happy new teeth!

greay, and I have to schedule an appointment with MY dentist for a cavity. I hate them wherever in the mouth they are, but this happens to be on my front tooth. Which means the shot will go DIRECTLY into my sinuses...Which is the WORST FEELING EVER!!!!
I have much empathy for you, hon. On the upside, you can totally have fun with your numbness...for instance, piercing parts of your face you normally would never think to pierce! Kitchen utensils, office supplies, wire hangers, EVERYTHING is a potential earring!
Have at!

Can you call someone to walk Sadie? And feed the felines? If so, do yourself a favor, and drool into the phone. I'm thinking you might be in need of some coddling yourself..... a rest on the couch, soft dinner, and something cool to drink.

Take extra good care of yourself, hon.

Take care of yourself! I am glad it wasn't infected!
