So today was the first post-extraction visit to the dentist. The cleaning didn't go very well, one of the worst since the initial cleaning. I suspect that my teeth have not adjusted to their new positions now that the wisdom teeth are gone, so the sensation of pressure on them was extremely uncomfortable. They shot another X-ray of the suspected cavity, and found more bad news. The decay is below the gum line, and extends under the top lip of the tooth. They won't know what they are up against until they get in there. Probably a root canal and a crown. The hygenist was making all kinds of I hope they can save the tooth noises, which does little to encourage me. However it seems best to get this over and done with now rather than later so I made the appointment to get the work done for next week.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
