My dentist appointment got cancelled last week, my non english speaking angry dental assistant called me to let me know the appointment was cancelled.I understood Geen Afsprek Donderdag (no appointment on Thursday) but the rest left me mystified, going to have to pop in and see when the next appointment is.

I didn't realise dentists give you cavities as well as fill them :)

I have had a couple of holes drilled into my teeth to hold my new plate, odd sensation having a drill working without anisthetic!

There was also some more imprints taken using much stronger rubber based compounds that were a nightmare pull out.

Annoyingly I got a telling off for not brushing teeth well enough...twice a day and after sticky meals....grrr what more can do?

Next week, I think I get my implant crownso that'll be an interesting day.

still in pain

Started my dental stuff with a fairly standard impression being taken, nothing to write home about on that. I have 6 or 7 more appointments over the next 2 months to make a plate to sit where my jaw used to be, and to provide a crown for the implant stud.

I'm still in pain thougha couple of "big yawns" caused some tearing in my jaw muscles and depending on how many follow up yawns occur, my jaw can be quite sore. At the moment it does ache a bit and its meant I am back to a 2 finger insert...but it should clear up.

I'll update you as and when anything ineresting happens.
