My oral surgery

Since I have celebrated my usual robust good health with you in previous posts, I thought it fitting to include this shortfall on my part.

A mere 24 hours ago I was in the oral surgeon’s chair waiting to be operated on. A couple of weeks back I managed to break a tooth biting into a hard piece of chocolate on one of my breaks while bike riding. Turned out that I needed an extraction (of the root), a bone graft and an implant for a new crown.

This is an actual X ray of my head. I included it for those interested in full details and because it cost $250.

You should be able to make out the missing tooth right next to the two front ones. Only the root remains.
