You cannot see the missing upper teeth in this photo, or the lower ones..but..I am determined to save the rest of my smile. This photo was taken December 2007 and it seemed a downhill slide from then on with my teeth.
Well, I went to the dentist yesterday to get my stitches removed...settled in chair with a good magazine. One I had never seen before...but it had a great story about when your parents get older...their changes of personality...etc. :(
Kinda scared me! You sweet people WILL tell me if I suddenly seem...a bit surly? Cranky? Snippy?
Judgemental? Promise me this..
So..anyway...the dentist came in gave me a SHOT and then removed my stitches..said everything looked good and now I had to wait until January to get my two teeth! Can you imagine? I had a bone graft..two in fact..so that is the reason.
He then told me that the lower three teeth could not be implanted due to loss of bone..but if I liked I could have a neat device put in that would be nearly as good.
They would put in a post and the missing teeth would SNAP in place...solid. Then he showed me a model...and how it worked. Told me to try it..I did...it didn't work. He showed me once again and this time it flew out of my hand...hit the concrete floor and all the front teeth broke off!!
I apologized...he was nice...(at least he didn't call me an clumsy idiot.) He was mumbling something about trying to glue them back when I left.
Would you believe I have to GO BACK THERE..again!
Why was I born??!!
Love and hugs,
