Oh, Crudtastic

I’ve been having the occasional stress nightmare about having my teeth fall out. Well, guess what?

No, not a tooth as such, but I’ve clearly lost part of one. My lower right first molar has a filling in it, and part of the tooth on the side of the filling is now gone. I thought there was something a little odd about the texture of the hummus wrap I had at lunch. Only a few minutes later did I think, hmm, that’s odd, something in my mouth feels oddly sharp.

I’ve scheduled another visit to the dentist, and everything seems stable for now. The filling looks pretty firmly attached, and there’s no pain involved. Still, it’s mighty disconcerting to have a sliver of tooth just up and vanish.
