Nothing could make me feel older today than hearing my dentist say he doesn't think my tooth can be saved. In all likelihood I will be needing a bridge.
WAIT A MINUTE!!!
Don't old people have bridges???
So, apparently the ear pain I have been experiencing is a nice little abcess. Nothing that a round of amoxicilin can't clear up. But, I have me a ticket to see a new specialist, my friend and yours, in the dental field. He would be an endodontist. I get to see him tomorrow and he will hopefully deliver the final verdict on this tooth that has been haunting me since 2002.
