So, I've had a lot of trouble keeping various temporary crowns on for various reasons. After my latest crown appointment (to get the impressions made), the temp for tooth #30 was pretty wobbly and even after getting it put back on (it popped off fairly soon after), it was wobbly enough that the dentist gave me some of the temporary cement to use at home.

Well.

I haven't used it. I should, but at the same time, it often feels better to just leave the temp off, because the wobbles irritate my gum. That and I just haven't felt up to fiddling in my mouth, scraping off the excess cement. Not with sinus issues and whatnot. So, I take the temp out when I need to, and put it back in when I need to, washing it inbetween.

Today when I was washing it in preparation to putting it back in, I dropped it. Down the open drain.

I was able to retrieve it without much problem of course, but... EWWWWWWW!

Right now it is soaking in hydrogen peroxide, and then I'll rinse it with alcohol so I know that all the ickies are dead and gone, but still! EWWWWWWW!

At least it didn't skip over into the toilet, right?

*sigh*

I find you incredibly phlegmatic about the whole affair. *hugs*

I had a mini tirade to myself about how if the permanent crown comes off within a couple of months (hell, within a couple of years!) the tooth itself is coming out. I am officially at the end of my tether.

So that's the bright side that was grossing you out! I wondered.
