I broke my goddamn tooth!
Ewww! Gross! Yuck! I would never post this on Facebook, but since we're a horror blog...
This is a better look at my lower right back molar than I ever wanted, especially because a quarter of it freaking gave up and seceded from my tooth while I was eating chocolate chip cookie dough last week. I didn't even notice when it happened, so I prefer to think its sacrifice dispatched a tough chip.
As bad as this looks, the pain and discomfort have actually been minimal. The nerve is shielded by metal, so there's a little bit of cold sensitivity and that's about it. The main problem is the sharp edge rubbing against my tongue.
I'm getting it fixed Friday. And I was pleased to find my teeth are otherwise in good shape.
