Had a little work done.

So I had all that dental work done finally. Monday was the day to get her done! My Big Brother was very good to me, in the sense that he did the dental surgery as nicely as he could. The freezing wore off a couple times, apperently I go through it fast because he really had me numbed up! So basically he pulled my front tooth that was trying to 're-absorb' from the inside, gross! And then he cleaned things out from the infection and put in a bone graft and membrane. Stitche dme up and bonded in a fake tooth! Don't I look lovely!? I think I look a bit like a rabid dog unfortunately. However my brother assures me I will look normal again. I go back in a few month after the baby is here to get an implant put in. Until then I have to be very careful with this temp tooth, it's not so permanent! Wish me luck, oh and sorry for the nasty pics in advance! Today I am more swollen and look like a woo-vilian from Dr Suess.

Oh, it looks... and sounds painful! I think I'm just a wimp when it comes to anything to do with dental work. Hopefully every else goes well though!

Your brother did a great job on your temp. tooth. Gums do look tender, but the tooth itself looks great! Thanks for posting I was wondering if you were going to do pics.....and sad to say I was really curious.

Oh man, I'm sorry that you had to do that, but at least it's behind now, right?? Good luck with the permanent one!
