I'll be starting the first stage of my oral implant! It's been held off for a little too long, as I had to wait for my insurance to refresh. I don't care to know just how many procedures I've undergone over the past year and a half. I'm just glad that it's finally coming to an end. Or so I hope?
So today's procedure is to drill a post into my jaw to fit the crown. It's basically the more permanent version of a "bridge", without any further damage to my surrounding teeth. I'll be put under... despite this procedure being a little more delicate than the extraction, I was so traumatized by the former, I opted for anesthesia for the later.
In preparation, I have a couple trays of jello ready in the fridge, a couple bottles of apple and cranberry juice, cans of soup, yogurt, instant miso, milk, and soft fruit for puree... as I probably won't be able to chew anything for the next two weeks. *sigh* I had my fill of yummy food today - a sammich from Aloha Salads for lunch and Thai Lettuce Wraps from Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Once the clock strikes midnight for me, I can't have any more liquids or food - which includes brushing of teeth or chewing of gum. .___.;
I hope all goes well and I won't have any further complications. My teeth and jaw really need a break! ^^;
