Implant is in!

My dental implant is in.  I now have to heal for 10 weeks before I can get a crown made.  It was a really quick process took no more then 45 mins and that is with about 10 to 15 mins of waiting for the Novocaine to really kick in.

Now that the Novocaine has worn off it’s a bit unpleasant but not unbearable.  I tried using over the counter pain medicine but that really didn’t work so I stepped it up to some narcotic pain killer the doctor gave me.  Going to try to get off that asap as I don’t want to risk playing with that crap!  It has me feeling a bit off but it did make the pain go away fast.

I think the hardest part is going to be remembering not to eat on the right and not to use a straw!  I usually have a drink in the car with me during my commute to work and not I need to remember not to use a straw!  Real first world problems right here! 🙂

So I am now at the 2/3rd done mark in this journey… a few more weeks to go and then I can think about getting my remaining 2 molars extracted for shits and giggles.
