Okay, so today I went to the dentist, bright and early this morning. He had to use two shots of Novocaine to numb me up. He then proceeded to drill, splash water and use tons of instruments and gunks in my mouth. I have no idea what all he did but I just let him go about his business. When we were finished, I found out that this is just a temporary crown and my new one would be here in about two weeks. I didn't expect this and thought this one would be my permanent one. He said the cavity went deep and he had to pull out all the old filling. I could have a tooth ache since it was so close to the nerve. He didn't think I would but if I did, let him know. Oh, he also nicked my lip with one of the tools he used. The Novocaine is wearing off now and my teeth are sore. My lip has stopped throbbing but it's sore. When I went to make my new apt for the permanent crown, I found out that the lab would be closed for a week or so and it wouldn't be here until July 16th, almost a month. I hope this pain goes away. It's not severe or enough to call him back yet but it's just plain sore and annoying. I think I'll stick to a liquid lunch today.
