Another cavity

We had a visit to the dentist today, and my fear of having cracked a tooth has been confirmed.
Actually, a bit has broken off and I have a cavity, so that will be filled next month.
Hubby got away with a quick file down of rough edges, descale and polish, so he is all smiles.
No problem. I’m coming out in sympathy with Maggie, though at the moment I don’t actually have toothache.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Bummer! I had a redo (root canal) of an old filling because the dentist was worried it would all collapse soon. Set me back $1000 in February. Eeks.

    • Holy shit!
      I have a crown that is over 30 years old, and although there is no infection, it’s not loose and isn’t bothering me, the Xray showed that the root canal wasn’t completely done. This is three teeth up from the one with the cavity. He said if it does start to play up it would be a case of removing the crown and pegs holding it together, redoing the root canal, repegging and re-crowning. ‘Nah, just take it out’ I said. ‘Or’, he continued, ‘we could take it out’. I like my dentist!

    Not many teeth left now, so visits to the dentist are becoming more pleasant, I am pleased to say…
