Sorry. This is not a "How to Train Your Dragon" post. I had a visit with the dentist today. I was all set to get a root canal on one of my teefs. After working on it for a bit, the dentist informed me that there was decay deep down in the tooth. He could continue, but the tooth would probably have to come out in the near future. He gave me the option of just jumping to that step. Since it's not really visible in my smile, I told him to go for it. A short time later I was one tooth lighter. I'll probably opt for an implant early next year after everything heals. Thank doG I have a primo dental plan that I chose years ago since I knew my mouth was a disaster area.
