More Dental Adventures
Ever since I had that big ol' chip in my tooth fixed it's been bugging me anytime I drink or eat something cold, or even drink room-temperature water, if it makes too much contact. So I finally went back to the dentist. He probed around with his little air-blower thingy to see where it was bothering me and exclaimed, "Oh, that makes our lives easier!" Man, that is definitely the sort of thing you want to hear at the dentist. Anyway, he thinks probably all it needed was some varnish to fill in a little "insufficiency." As opposed to, y'know, a root canal. The whole thing took 15 minutes. Right now, I've got a giant wad of gauze in my face that I'm not allowed to remove for half an hour, and I may have to go back for a couple more applications. But I will definitely take that over a root canal. Whew!
