UPDATE ON THE TEETH SITUATION

Wednesday the 21st I had an appointment to have the implant that had come out some time ago replaced, and to have the implant on the right side of my mouth capped with some kind of devise that protects the gum and is one step closer to the final thing. Before beginning any of his work he said, “we better check that the implant is OK.”. He pressed down on it with some instrument and asked if I felt any pain. I guess from my flinching when he pressed he knew there was pain. “This one is no good either”, he said, “I will have to replace it, along with the left side”. So I basically had the same operation redone that was done more than three months ago. I am now going to have to wait another three months for the final steps that anchor the denture firmly in place.

And today I went to the other dentist to have the dentures relined to fit my receeded gums. When he looked in my mouth he became concerned that the material used for the impression – that had to be taken – would adhere to the sutures that were still exposed , and when the impression was removed would tear the sutures loose and cause more bleeding and maybe have to sew up the gum again, so back home I went with nothing accomplished. The relining won’t be done now until Cornie gets back mid April from his trip to Turkey. I wonder what my sins are that cause all these delays and problems?
