A crown, A crown, my Kingdom for a crown.


I'm a bit cranky. Irritable. Uncomfortable.

I have (had) a temporary crown on a molar.

It fell off. While I was eating.

When my Dentist was preparing the tooth for the crown, she laid a protective coating over the nerve in the tooth. Then the assistant laid on the cement and the temporary crown.

The crown is currently in a baggie in my pocket.

The coating on the nerve has, I think, melted.

So now I'm a bit cranky. And irritable. And I'm becoming more and more uncomfortable.

8am this morning the Dentist's office will open.

I'll be there when it opens. I'll be a teddy bear by the time I leave her office.

I'm keeping an eagle eye out for you, Lou. I will make sure to steer way clear until after your dental appointment.

That has gotta hurt. So sorry you're in pain. Hopefully you can get in to see the dentist first thing.

Blech! Dental work is one of my least favorite things!

Oh, I so sympathize. I'm a bull (bullina?... and don't you dare say it!) when it comes to pain. Anywhere but in my mouth. I'm a total wuss about that. I've been known to cry at the dentist. Just last November, in fact. I hope you've been healed by now.

Ohmygosh! The same thing happened to me on Tuesday night. I wasn't even eating anything chewy or crunchy. Probably a good thing it wasn't crunchy, or I might have damaged the crown or another tooth. Go ahead and be cranky. We all understand! Hope the rest of your weekend is better.
