tooth extraction done

Okay, so there was no pain.  But…

It took Dr. Strong considerably longer than expected to get this tooth out.  It fractured into pieces when the crown was removed, and two roots had to be cut from each other to dig them out.  The ventral root had a bulbous shape on the end of it, and it was hanging on!  Finally, it all came out, and two dissolving sutures were put in, and the whole thing was packed in gauze.

On the way out, I said to the receptionist, “I hope Dr. Strong recovers well from this.”  She laughed.


The freezing is coming out, and I still taste blood.  It’ll take some time to heal.
