Stop crowning around

The best laid plans always seem destined to fail…or something like that, right?  Well, such was the case for todays scheduled blog post.  Today was supposed to be the day where I release the latest podcast for everyone’s listening pleasure.  I’ve got all the prep content outlined and had a great conversation with Terry Reinert of TKR Photo all smoothed out and ready for insertion when…

A temporary crown came loose.  This crown had been in place for going on a year now and the new dentist in Colorado had seemed more or less unconcerned about (but will be later today).  She had me coming in for cleanings, x-rays, evaluations, and pretty much everything except the crown for 3 or 4 visits now.  On my last visit I actually brought it up and mentioned some mild discomfort – asking when that procedure would be completed.  The response “there’s other things we’d like to take care of first.”

I am now getting the distinct impression that these visits were purely for the purposes of collecting a co-pay.   While the initial auspices of being proactive on dental hygiene sounded good, more and more this is seeming like a thinly veiled excuse for collecting as much as they can.  So, now that this almost 12-month old temporary crown has come loose, in my mind it is time to “stop crowning around”.  (Collective groan from the audience, I know….but couldn’t resist it.)

So, what all this means is that the dull throbbing in my jaw has prevented me from being able to focus on getting the quality content out that I would like.  I doused the side of my mouth in a toothache OTC med and it certainly numbed my mouth enough to prevent me from talking without a “theriouth lithp”.  So, the podcast wil have to wait until Monday.  Have a good weekend all and we’ see you back here then.  Until then, Happy Shooting!

    Hope all goes well with the tooth. Not a fun way to spend the weekend that’s for sure.

    I had a crown come loose with exactly the same symptoms. I couldn’t get in to see the dentist for a few days, but he recommended I get some temporary crown adhesive at the drug store to hold it for a few day. It worked and the ache stopped as soon as the crown was in place. Hope you can get it looked after soon.
