I am a champion flosser and brusher, so big shock. In earlier years, a wisdom tooth had impacted the root of the last molar and apparently it caused some damage that developed to the point of no return.
The goal was to try to save the tooth, but once the periodonist had a look (I will spare you the gory details) it was a no go and out the tooth came. In with a bone graft. Most likely I'll have to get an implant to prevent bone loss. And I certainly don't want a domino effect on the other teeth.
So I've been a bit missing in action lately.
Of course, being a freelancer doesn't help. When work calls, I gotta make money.
That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it. *g*
