Before I went to bed, I could sense some swelling in my mouth on the upper left side. I woke up this morning after just a few hours sleep with it very tender and obviously swollen.
My main dentist¹ (who was in his office on his day off) saw me this morning, briefly. It was enough time for an x-ray and an opinion. Two teeth will have to go because of a periodontal abscess.
My second session is set for 3:30 this afternoon at the periodontist. No one is more thrilled than I!
¹ – When you have more than one dentist, you know you’re coming to the plate with an 0-2 count before the first pitch.
