Well now, that was interesting.

Today I had a dentist appointment, the last one of a series. I had one more spot that needed a filling, due to a previous filling cracking into pieces. Well, the dentist does his thing, gets it all nicely filled, sculpted, burnished, and whatever else he needs to do to make it all wonderful. So of course the next step is to have me bite down gently on the piece of carbon paper to check stuff. Well, it would seem that part didn't go so well and the new filling cracked. So back he went to the "filling removal" stage and redoing everything. Except the second time around he did some grinding on the tooth above before doing the carbon test. Well, actually there was grinding on the upper tooth several times. He thinks it was also responsible for the original filling cracking.
So how's your day been?

I hate that carbon paper. It is the root of all evil.

Knitters unite against carbon paper!!

Hope all is better from there.

yargh. and I like to tease my dentist that he went to school for 4 years just to tap my teeth for a minute and tell me everything looks fine. Guess he has a real job after all! :)

ARGH! The Knight has the fourth - or fifth? - dental appointment next week, which I believe simply confirms that everything is okay.

Surely your day can only get better.

I'm still laughing at Laura's comment. Had to repeat it to the hubby. ::snicker:: I got a grunt.

Hope the tooth is feeling okay after all that. Would have replied sooner, but our internet has been sketchy since the last line of storms we had.
