Eating Teeth

WE WERE IN Cedar City, UT today to shop and had lunch at our favorite place, NINJA, a sushi restaurant.

I bit into an eggroll and felt something hard in my mouth. Gingerly pulling it out, my wife says "What is it?"

"It looks like a tooth," I said, mildly shocked. When, a moment later, I realized it was MY tooth, the shock level increased.

It's a tooth just to the left of my big front teeth. Never filled, never bothered me, never a problem. It didn't hurt, it made no sound, it just came apart, leaving a slight protruding remnant sticking out of my gum and a Grand Canyon size gape in my mouth. I could play the role of one of the hillbillies in "Bubba Goes Fishing."

I don't like to think about what this will require, dental work-wise. I hope it doesn't mess up my whistling.

Just one more sign of the inevitable but you can get a temporary flip tooth
while waiting for a bridge.

Chewing a tough steak at the local hotel diner my top plate broke in two
I laughed it off to the waitress and got a free voucher meal next time

Yes very offputting and dismaying. But you must go right away to get it fixed. I recently had an old filling replaced in the back of my mouth. I just one day noticed this HOLE. Somewhere it fell out. Hope I didn't swallow it.

Puts you right off your lunch, eh.

Put it under your pillow and let us know what the tooth fairy brings you.

What a shocker. Not much makes a person feel the effects of aging more than random bodily disintegration.
