Oh No, Not Again


As you may remember, a couple weeks back I had a tooth pulled.  I'm pleased to report that it has healed very well, and other than a bit of soreness for the first couple of days the extraction site has troubled me not at all. 

A week ago, I woke up with an intense pain in my mouth... on the side of my jaw opposite the extracted tooth.  A visit to the dentist and a X-ray later, a massive cavity was discovered.  Turns out this one went in from between two teeth, which explains why it didn't bother me until it hurt like the dickens.  Dr Tooth gave me two options: a $4000 root canal that didn't have the greatest chances of succeeding, or another extraction.

I get the tooth out on Friday.  Sunuvabeechmartin.

At least it doesn't hurt all the time.  Just when, y'know, something hot or cold hits it.  I should be able to make it that long.

1 These prices are pure robbery. I had extraction and implant done in $3500 (including site preparation with a bone graft, cost of making the implant itself, and all the work).

2 I love a grinning duck I know what ya mean. I gotta go to the dentist next week to get two fillings fixed. Ugh.
