…or “When Good Teeth Go Bad.”
I have a temporary crown on a bottom left molar. Yesterday it started throbbing. By 2 a.m. it was a red-hot icepick jabbed into my jaw. You know the scene in “Castaway” where Tom Hanks bashes his tooth out with a rock? I was fantasizing about doing that. Handfuls of Advil didn’t help. Tylenol PM finally knocked me out. Today I have Vicodin. Tomorrow, root canal.
