An Oral Fixation

Well people, by the time most of you read this, I will probably be blissfully inhaling nitrous oxide as my oral surgeon inserts a big ol' titanium screw up into my jawbone. Like this:

Found here. 

If you're one of those weird people that likes to watch YouTube videos of surgeries, you can see a video of an implant oral surgery here. Although I can't imagine why you would. 

So. I'm a bit preoccupied eating crunchy things that I won't be able to indulge in after surgery as I'm typing this. See ya'll tomorrow.

Pass the popcorn, John. *crunch crunch crunch*

Good luck! I'm going to have to have one or two of those eventually, so let us know how it goes, but break it gently. Never mind, feel free to lie. ;)

In the home stretch of a major restoration- I opted for a hybrid implant- 6 implants, all lower teeth removed. My temporary teeth have been ok, look natural, and should have permanent denture attached to my head by the end of this month. The most pain was the cost. Yiikes! But surgery recovery was fast, Friday surgery, back at work on Tuesday with little bruising and swelling. One implant should be easy!

My tummy did a flip flop when I read today's post. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
