It feels weird to have a huge hole in the back of your tooth. The temporary filling is so, so gone! I am happy.
Before they started the filling part, I let them know that my gums were starting to wake up. That happens -- the gums start to wake up before the whole thing's through, making the ending bits very uncomfortable if there's any monkey business going on in the general area. So I got another couple shots of numb-juice in my poor gums. My gums are not going to be happy with me until this is finished.
The filling's in, and I have a smile again now! I'm so very vain about that. I don't have ugly temporary filling in my front teeth. I wasn't talking about it too much before, but oh, it was bothering me, and now I have other things to worry about!
I can't chew on the tooth, not really, not for the reason of lack of strength, but because it doesn't meet up. Crown goes on in two weeks. I have a smile again. It's a little crooked, but it's my smile.
The lower part of my sinuses felt all numb. That was really weird. I don't think I like that. I liked the dull ache when the anaesthetic wore off even less than that; I was happy when it graduated into a painless throbbing. Eventually that went away too. Now my gums are just a bit tender, as you'd expect from them having needles stuck into them and other things rammed around in their vicinity.
