I finally got to see the dentist.
It turns out the problem had nothing to do with the gum recession (good news for all of you who seem to have the same problem!).
There is an infection in the tooth which flared up as it was working its way into the bone. The tooth has died, but the infection is still there. He gave me an antibiotic to fight that.
The next step is a root canal (doesn’t that sound like fun?) to get all of the infection out of the tooth. Then a crown.
Don't ask me why a dead tooth needs all this attention. Evidently even a dead tooth is worth saving. I don't understand it all, but I trust that my dentist will lead me down the right path (or should I say canal?):)
I just went to Walmart to get the prescription filled. While waiting, I found these little treasures in the 75% mark down aisle. Eight napkins and an animal print flower vase shaped like a purse. How cute is that? If only I had some animal-print dishes, I could do a safari-themed table.
Hmmmm....I do have black dishes that just might look cute with the vase filled with tree branches......and my new gold charger plates that Santa brought me. Oh, I do love new table accessories!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
