I’m feeling rather fragile today, all because I visited the dentist yesterday. Or to be precise, the Oral Surgeon. After many years of battling gum problems I decided that enough was enough. My peridontist once told me that I was one of the small percentage of people who could never eradicate this problem. So yesterday, I was booked in for a “full clearance”. That’s dental speak for removing all the teeth. They all came out, and the new plates went in. Intravenous sedation was used and once the initial line went in my arm, I was away with the fairies and quite honestly didn’t feel a thing. On waking up I felt a bit sore around my jaw, and retired very early to bed last night. My mouth is still rather tender today, so I am taking the pain killers as prescribed, and the antibiotics. Still need a hug though!
