As you can see above i’m currently missing one of my front teeth after my dentist said I had two choices in terms of what to do with my damaged tooth.
My choices were to either remove the tooth and be left with a gap or have a root canal and a new crown fitted.
This wasn’t much of a choice to me, as for pure vanity reasons i couldn’t be left with a gap even if i could later have a denture fitted. This was doubly so due to the fact i’m currently unemployed and feel that being toothless would put me at a disadvantage when attending interviews.
So I decided to proceed with the root canal & crown procedure. However I wasn’t told that i would be toothless for three weeks whilst waiting for my gum to heal.
Thankfully I only have another week to wait until the new crown is fitted and I’m able to smile again without feeling self conscious.
I really hope my dentist knows what he’s doing.
