My Tooth

So where have I been all week? Well, mostly I’ve been busy with the first week of classes, but also I had my left-front tooth removed after years of trouble. It was ankylosed (fused to my skull) and decaying below the gum line. Here’s an X-ray.

As you can see, it was quite sick. Lucky for me, it’s been dead for years, so it never caused me pain. Also lucky, was that the extraction procedure went smoother than expected. It was the most pleasant dental experience I’ve ever had, although I was a little scared to have dental surgery done in Lilburn—Jeff Francoeur’s home town. Thanks to Dr. Forest Butler for his excellent work. I recommend him to anyone.

Anyway, I just wanted an excuse to post this really cool digital X-ray.
