A Goner

1 Dec

I couldn’t stand it anymore. My strickened pre-molar hurt when I played golf on Saturday and it throbbed on Sunday when the masseur patted me down on the back after the massage.

So I decided to see the dentist yesterday. Sure enough; just as I suspected something was not right after the persimmon episode, he confirmed that the tooth had really split down the middle; the bite on the persimmon seed did it in.

He even scrapped out the loose old filling to prove his point and I could see one half of the tooth wobbly when he probed it. It’s gone and I cannot salvage it anymore.

What choice do I have left but to have it extracted?

The big day will be this Friday and I will have a gap for a month before I decide the next step: a bridge or implant.
