Just Got Back...

...from the dentist office. It has been awhile since I have seen a dentist and the technology has really improved. Digital X-Rays are the coolest things since sliced toast. No more having to hold the film in your mouth while the tech goes back and forth behind the lead wall. Just an emitter, a receive and a computer, instant images.

I have a tooth that has been bothering me for awhile so of course I wait until my ear is all hot and my eye is swollen half shut before I see anyone. After the antibiotics work in the infection and get the swelling down, I'm in for a Root Canal. Oh joy.

But at least they have cool tools.

Be glad it's only a root canal! IT could have been a lot worse!

Kathryn and I make a point of having just finished a Snickers bar and an espresso before walking in. To, it's a given we're humming "Feed me, Seymore!" Dito on the joys of digital X-rays - so be good and take the full course of antibiotics and get that root canal over with (I had 3 last year). There comes a point where I had to recognize drinking heavily wasn't working well enough!

The antibiotics have knocked down most of the swelling already, on the flip side they make my beer tast bad.

So a root canal and crown will run you around $1500. Gotta love dentists.
