To think that this tooth has stayed with me through all my adventures, good and bad.  

Never left me while sailing through the air after being hit by a Cadillac at age four.  Was there when I shot my first rifle and pistol at age nine.  Walked down the isle with me at my high school graduation and survived the vomit chucked up at the party that evening.  Stood up with me while I raised my hand when joining the Navy, and again when I married my wife.  Shared the joy of bringing our three children into the world and the grief when we lost one.  85 years through thick and thin..............

But it all came to an end at around 11 am this morning when my dentist and friend decided that it had to go.  

Good by old buddy, despite the grief and pain that you caused me over the last 24 hours, I still love ya.

OWCH! Nothin' worse than a sore tooth. I lost more weekends to tooth-pain than I should have. I remember the last time I went in to the DDs to have a cracked tooth looked at. Sat in the chair, tilted my head back and he injected that Numbing shot and the pain just melted away. oooH, I shoulda had this done weeks ago. Gargling with whisky just wasn't cutting it anymore! Ya gonna get one of them fancy scmancy Screw-in Stud mounted or just a flipper?

A very cute recounting of what you and that tooth have gone through together, Bob...they say that human cells are replaced by Nature every 7 years...I do not think that is true with teeth, otherwise dentists would go bankrupt?

Bob, did you put the tooth underneath your pillow last night, and the tooth fairy replaced it with money? Very Happy Or, an A.C. Gilbert Mooney in full box at the foot of your bed? Very Happy

Smile Smile

It was a molar, all the way back upper left side.  Big tooth three roots.  Didn't come out easy, Doc pushed and pulled for over two minutes, creak, crack, crunch.  This wasn't my first extraction, two others one a previous root canal.  Thinking about implant replacements, but, I'm 85. Beware of the "Dry socket."  I still have all my wisdom teeth.

My son has perfect teeth, no cavities, a floride benefit that people of my generation never had.  We got to talking about it, I told him, wait until you have your first tooth pulled.  He reminded me that while serving aboard the Nimitz a Navy dentist pulled all four of his wisdom teeth at one sitting.  Removing the early wisdom teeth is supposed to prevent problems later in life.  

We always put a dime in an envelope for our kids.  Doc kept the tooth otherwise I would be expect around one K$ had I done so.  Didn't happen.  Smile

Hey Bob. I got the same deal today. Probably the first extraction I've had in 40 years. Right side upper molar. Been putting up with an abscess for the past six months and thought I'd better make the decision and get it checked out. Well, the x-ray told the truth. Abscess was indeed attached to the suspect molar and I was then given a choice. Root canal, $1,600, plus a crown for another $1,600. $3,200 investment didn't seem like a wise choice, so I told him it had to come out. Sounds a bit like yours Bob. Hanging on tight- didn't want to leave me, but at least it came out in one piece. It was a great choice. Dentist told me straight out I dodged a bullet. Root was cracked all the way down. There was no hope of saving any of it, so I just saved myself $3,200. lol!

Gotta say, I'm getting a little hungry. Appointment was just before lunch. (I didn't consider eating before I left). Small bowl of scrambled eggs for dinner. Nothing that's going to tempt me to chew. Ah well, that's done. Waiting for the next chapter of "The signs of ageing".

Same thought here Rod.

For $3200 I could buy an old clapped out Mazda RX-7GSL-SE crispy and begging for restoration.
