Today was not a good day in the dental sense – for me personally. On the weekend I was eating something and felt an ominous crunch. The tooth that crunched was the one that recently had a post and crown. I knew exactly what had happened. I hoped it hadn’t but, well, I was pretty sure. A vertical fracture down the root. No hope to salvage that one.
Today the diagnosis was confirmed. As I sit here writing, the upper left side of my face is slowly awakening.
Just a few complicating factors are putting off the inevitable – my huge sinuses surrounding about half the root and a partner who chose to do the prudent thing and let me see an oral surgeon to have it out. So I am minus the crown and awaiting an appointment. It can take a year to get in to that office.
The gap feels pretty weird.
