First phase o' surgery: Extraction of old shotty tooth/crown, bone graft, suture mania, and the "flipper." I talk with a mega lisp with the flipper in. I sound like Homestar Runner. Upon extracting my tooth, the periodontist discovered that the crown had, in fact, cracked in half and what was left underneath was just a mound of decay. Yummy.
My former dentist owes me a bundle.
My main complaint is that I can't eat any solid foods. Eating things that simply slide down my throat is incredibly unsatisfying.
