Doing Fine

Just thought I would let you all know I survived the dental ordeal and am doing fine. I was in the chair for 2 hours and it wasn't that bad. I took some Advil before hand and I think that helped. I am just sore and tired and trying to get used to this monstrosity in my mouth, otherwise known as a temporary crown. Its like wearing a retainer that you can't take out. Sure you don't have to floss but it still feels so strange. In two weeks I'll have the permanent crowns and that will be so much better.

Glad to hear that it was not too bad. Hope the soreness will pass soon. xo

I'm glad to hear it too, Kate. I have 5 dental implants, got 4 at the same time, split my jawbone to do it. Believe it or not, although the 1st day was horrible, the Vicodin helped a lot, and after that I watched lots of good tv for days. The dreading was worse than the doing.

I had an emergency dental visit today just for a gum abcess, but oy! was it painful. Thought of you!

Take care,
