Tooth of the Husband

Bleah. My poor sweet husband is having an emergency crown on his tooth tomorrow. I went in to have my teeth cleaned this past Saturday, and he came with me. Good thing he did: his mouth had been bothering him some, and they were able to work him in.

Turns out an old filling has caused a major crack in his tooth, and the good news was that they weren't going to have to do a root canal, but needed to get him in pronto to deal with the problem tooth and crown it. He goes in tomorrow, and he's a little nervous, understandably, as he's never had one before.

They gave me plenty of nitrous for mine, and I know they'll be kind to him, but I'm going with him tomorrow just in case he's woozy.

I just had a crown fitted last weekend. Please convey the appropriate sympathies :)

Thank you, sweetie! *hugs* I will do so. I keep telling him he'll feel much better once it's done. I've had mine about a year now, and haven't had any problems at all.

Wow, the exact same thing happened to me last month - old filling and all.

Not sure what he's going to have done, but I had a partial crown fitted in 2 hours. The least pleasant things were a) drooling all over my damn self while I waited for the crown to be made, and b) waiting for the numbness to wear off (took longer than they said).

Now everything is better, and I don't have the horrible ugly silver filling anymore. :)

Much hugs and luck to husband.

(And your package is finally in the mail, BTW - it's a magazine about life in the Triangle that came out soon after you had mentioned interest in the area. Talks about everything from food, weather, traffic, cost of living, etc. Some info is happy, some is sad, but I still maintain that the traffic here is better than Atlanta!)

I had a similar thing with an old filling in mine. I think it's just our age and way of dealing with teeth back in the day. Our kids will have better teeth, I think. And, like you, I now lack the oogly silver filling. :)

You are so sweet and kind; I will definitely pass the good thoughts along.

(Re: the package -- you dear, wonderful individual. Thank you so, so much, Mur. That was incredibly nice of you. I was talking to my cousin last night, and I told her how goofy it was, but even just that one weekend there, I felt instantly comfortable and instantly at home, like I didn't have to stand on ceremony or be anybody but myself. Not that I try to be anybody but myself, but you know what I mean. I feel like I have friends there -- Phaedra keeps e-mailing me "when are you coming up, woman?" etc. :) I hope I can use this magazine to pique David's interest a bit more. I mean, there are lemurs near where you live! How can you beat that, I ask you? :) If it were just me, the decision would already be made.)

*hugs*

Even if he won't relent, I'm coming to visit sometime within the next year, dammit. I miss you, I miss Phaedra, and I have always really liked North Carolina.
