I just hit an incredible speed bump that got me to the dentist instead of the emergency ward. I've been battling a sore tooth and at first I wasn't concerned because it seems to happen every year for me at this time. But, when my face started to swell and it was evident I had an abscess I was scared. The internet is a great thing but sometimes reading too much about a symptoms can make you start to wonder if you are sick or dying.
So, after a treatment of antibiotics injected into my jaw to take care of the periodontal abscess and being sent home to take antibiotics I'm on the mend. Eating isn't easy or enjoyable. I feel quite miserable actually.
Dental health is part of total body health care. Thank you for the lesson Universe.
