Finally a new tooth!
I'm finally getting my new tooth today. OK let's go back a couple of months, while I was on vacation in August I broke a crown thankfully in the back of my mouth. The crown didn't actually brake but the tooth underneath did. When I went to the dentist and after x-rays he told me I had broken the root and the best option was for a tooth implant. I'm thinking how much is all this going to cost and let me tell you A LOT! Our insurance pays for some of it but still it's expensive. Anyway they put the implant in back in October and it really wasn't that painful, my face was a little swollen and mouth a little sore for a few days. The implant has to heal for about 4 months before the crown process can start. Finally today is the day for the crown YEAH. I'm just glad it was a lower back tooth so you couldn't tell I've been missing a tooth all this time. I know too much information but I wanted to share.
