My smile is back!
Thank you to those of you who enquired. I am pleased to report I have my smile back and am recovering well from oral surgery on Friday.It was a pretty yucky weekend, in fact I didn't even make it out of my PJ's! Three doses of the heavyweight codeine helped, and after that I got by with the OTC painkillers. The actual pain from the site was minimal considering the bone grafting done.I had the most discomfort from a suture that had a knot rubbing on my palate, it was BAD, but happily my dentist fixed this today. The other problem was the temporary full upper retainer, with a composite replacement tooth built in, it made all my other teeth ache!So yesterday I stayed home then I didn't have to keep it in for 8 hours, and to allow me to deal with my discomfort in private. I also suffered a pretty major and rare bout of depression all day, it just hit me that I'd lost a front tooth, and the Hubster had to deal with an unusual problem - a very quiet introverted Sarah!But today at noon I got my interim replacement 'flipper' tooth which will be in for 8 months until the implant is complete, and that painful suture fixed. The replacement is a good match and very comfortable, so my mojo has returned along with my smile.
