What a great way to celebrate my (Chinese calendar) birthday! Doped up on novocaine and with a newly gap-toothed smile.
(Hugs and sympathies to my friend who's already gone through this and is already dealing with having a "flipper". I'll be thinking of you.)
Edit: And it's restaurant week! Won't be doing that this week, not while I'm on a liquid diet.
Related question: does anyone have a dentist/periodontist they like in Eastern MA? Going to the dentist in CT has been a scheduling challenge.
