Well, I got a permanent bridge installed yesterday. Lower left side, now I no longer have a gap in my teeth where that bicuspid used to be. This completes the dental odyssey which I began in May, when I went to the dentist for the first time in almost 20 years.

Must admit, there's nothing quite like bridgework to make you feel very definitely middle-aged.

On the other hand, for the first time in years, I can now chew food on both sides of my mouth. That's going to take some getting used to again.

just don't get OCD about it like I was when I was a kid. I had to chew food evenly on both sides of my mouth or I was not happy.....
