Welcome To Case's Column

Since this will be my first venture into the mysterious world of blogging, let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings "Case's Column". I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, I'll set aside a place here for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Here you are. My very first blog page. Come on in and share in the experience. I'm interested in seeing where this is all going. And thanks in advance for dropping by!

To Tell The Tooth? Getting To The Root Of The Problem

Posted 05-02-2012 at 07:55 PM by case44

Part 1 is already over, with yours truly having gotten a temporary filling put in an abscessed tooth. It's also the hard part, so when I go to the endodontist tomorrow morning, I'll know what to expect. The root canal treatment will be over in no time.

When I go in for the second (and, hopefully, final) appointment, a permanent filling will be put in place to, once and for all, bring restoration to said tooth. I'll admit, I really needed it. Thankfully, the lesions below tooth 24 didn't grow any bigger, as they have been there for years unchecked. It's located in the front, but it's in the lower bridge. Still, it had been noticeable to those standing up close to my face. Root canals aren't about pain, folks; they're about healing. And tomorrow will see the beginning of a new journey, one where dog poop is turned into gold. Be glad I don't have a gold tooth. Instead, the abscessed tooth will be restored to much of its former color.

What's wrong with having all of your teeth in good condition?? Be sure to get your teeth checked as soon as you can. You can thank me later.

    That procedure took only 35 minutes. Not bad.

    Better, mal. Thanks. The tooth really won't become white again (have to do a bleaching for that), but the roots below the tooth will function as good as new. Didn't have any big pain, either.
