Oh Frelling Frell Frell

Okay--given my history, I have often held in my hand a crown after wearing it.

It isn't usually imbedded in a piece of chocolate and was recently in my mouth.

Frantic phone call...

"You can come in any time Monday."

"Monday!!??--I have to wait that long????

"You'll be fine. Just come in any time Monday."

*Oh, it's going to be a lovely weekend.*

At least it was chocolate that did it and not something regretable, like brussel sprouts!

I'm so sorry that you have to deal with a dentist - AGAIN.

Wishing you the best for re-coronation.

Dentists are often remarkably sanguine about these things, but then, you're not talking about not THEIR mouths.

OTOH, as long as you're not in pain, it'll feel weird and distracting, but they're probably correct that you'll be ok.

I hate to say this, but... get used to it. You must have better teeth than I do, but it's gonna happen sooner or later. I went through multiple major dental foo about 3-6 years ago. Same scenario - grew up on well water, lots of aging fillings and weak teeth because no fluoride as a kid. The implant was particularly fun.

Have you ever tried "Dent-temp?" There's a "temporary filling/crown cement" stuff you can get at an eckerd or Rite-aid. If the nerve is exposed or there's a nice "food catcher" in the tooth, it can help keep it clean and protected..even if you just use it as a patch and don't actually re-cement the crown in place.

Just a thought... sorry to hear it.

I'd thought of that, but it's a tricky tooth and I don't want to mess with it. I'm just going with really soft food and lots of rinsing.

The bitch of it is I'm supposed to get the permanent crown on Thursday--I'm not sure whether it's even worth going in on Monday. *sigh*
