I have like five baby teeth left, but…
At two years old, I needed my first filling. At three, I got a whole bunch more. At nine, my teeth started breaking, and I would feel sand-like stuff in my mouth sometimes. Bits of teeth. At ten or eleven, half of a molar fell out. The dentist had to expose the root to fill it in. At eleven, I got an abscess, and was sick for a week.
And so on and so on…
At age now, I had a weird toothache. Apparently, the tooth had dissolved from the inside out. The dentist pulled it, but the swelling didn’t go away.
I noticed a weird, flaky chunk of grey stuff under a flap in my gum where the tooth used to be. The dentist decided to take time of her holiday break to check it out.
I had had a partially dry socket, but it was healing.
Then last night I was feeling my teeth last night, and I realized that there was a gaping whole in one of my teeth. Another filling fell out.
