The photos were taken a few months ago. I had a ten year old crown removed, a root canal done, and a new crown made. I started to write about it, but I didn't want to make anyone panic. Other than the root canal taking a long time, my teeth are heavily calcified making them hard to work on, it was not unpleasant. The vibrations when the root canal was being done are unique, like nothing else, not unpleasant, but unusual. I am very happy with the outcome, a complete success and the new crown is made out of some miracle substance that is likely to outlast me. (The doc said, you will break your jaw, before you will break that crown.) The 3 or 4 hours of time in the chair, payed off with being pain free and able to eat anything that does not eat me first.
To your health, this weeks Sunday five
1: Would you sooner see your Dentist or have your taxes reviewed by the IRS?
2: Have you ever delayed a Dental appointment, for more than a year?
3: Do you take a daily multivitamin pill?
4: Do you like or dislike your doctor? (Or don't have one?)
5: Would you trust a doctor that smoked?
1: Would you sooner see your Dentist or have your taxes reviewed by the IRS? I don't really fear either, at least with the dentist I know what to expect.
2: Have you ever delayed a Dental appointment, for more than a year? Yes, how long did I live in Kentucky?
3: Do you take a daily multivitamin pill? Yes, started based on a recommendation from a Doc, 35 years ago.
4: Do you like or dislike your doctor? (Or don't have one?) I like her, I wish her office would go to electronic records and electronic prescribing.
5: Would you trust a doctor that smoked? Yes, as long as they were honest about it. My father's doctor smoked, Cliff was honest that it was unhealthy and that he would likely live longer and healthier if he quit. He died of a massive heart attack driving his boat at high speed.
