I am in serious pain. I went to a dentist on Friday after exruciating pain on Thursday night. I have good oral hygiene, but apparently this stems from a filling from childhood. The super duper news is that I get the choice of a root canal or extraction. YIPPEE!!!
It is my last tooth and I chose to have it extracted. I'll officially be toothless. I have much anxiety about it. I HATE, HATE, HATE all things dental related.
Pray for me during this time and send the Tooth Fairy my way with some of that magic dust. :)
