Always think of this while I'm there. Enjoy!
While I was up in Provo with the BY-U kid, I broke a tooth... brushing my teeth. How's that for irony? I called the hygienist (#3) who explained that in older or larger fillings (both apply in my case) the filling expands and contracts and over time this cause a fissure and eventually a crack and then one day while you are actually taking care of your teeth they turn on you and fall out.
So today I saw the doc, who I have to tell you, was fabulous. The best I have ever been to. With Thor's job our dental coverage changes so often we have to find new dentists on a regular basis. It's like playing MineSweeper only with dental insurance. Any who, this new doc was amazing! I never even felt that first needle prick to numb me... a miracle I tell you!
Now as I am typing this my face is still buzzing and my lip is doing Elvis impressions. The only thing that is feeling funky is the place I was chewing on yesterday when a pretzel got me in the wrong place. It's on the other side of my mouth so it didn't get any buzz juice, dang it.
All's well that ends well but that ending will have to wait until the 8th of September when I go back for the rest of the job.
