Do you see what I see,

a tooth, a tooth it dances in the night.

Well not quite but almost. I got my tooth today, it’s been a day that I’ve been waiting for since I was 10 or 11 years old and the OPG showed that I was missing an adult tooth. I was so excited that I managed to burn my thumb with the straightener this morning – why on earth I thought it was a good idea to pick it by the plates was a good idea, I’ll never know.


So this is my tooth. It’s not perfect yet, it will get reshaped slightly and the brightness toned down a bit when I come back from Japan but the important thing at the moment is for my gum to start accepting it and growing round it.

I’ll tell you right it was a mighty weird feeling the first time I ate something this afternoon and just as my tongue moves round my mouth, it can’t poke itself between the gap any more.

Here is to the future!
