A long-ass time ago I posted about some extreme sensitivity and pain, mostly associated with temperature. Well, turns out the tooth had a cavity, died, and had to be extracted.

First a chunk broke off, then it shattered at the gumline.

Now I have this stupid piece of plastic called a flipper that's basically a placeholder until I can afford a permanent bridge. It's expensive af and my insurance will only cover half.

It makes me sound like I have a severe speech impediment, so I'll only be wearing it at home and at night. You can't really see the missing tooth anyway, and I can't eat with it in. That, as you may well imagine, is a problem to me.
