Cut for squick.

The tooth was split all the way into the root, there was no possibility of saving it. So they pulled it.

Pulled is a little misleading. First they had to break off some pieces to get a better hold of it. Even with the novocaine, it's not a pleasant experience

First there was the electrocautery of a portion of my soft palate. Having to remove anything metal from my person just in case.

I am now at work with a mouthful of bloody gauze, feeling like I'd really rather be elsewhwere. The novocaine is beginning to wear off, and I'm gonna try to suck on some crackers for breakfast. Stitches come out a week from thursday.

I could definitely use some love today.

NOoooo!

I look forward to the day when they can grow fresh new teeth for us, and just replace the old ones when they go bad.

Yeah-- we briefly talked dental implant, but I'm more focused on the now and the ow.
