Dental Surgery Day

Renee had her tooth pulled today and a post implanted in preparation for installing an artificial tooth.  The extraction went well.  The root of the tooth was fractured, and the surgeon was surprised there wasn't any infection caused by that.  Since there was no infection, he was able to install the implant today.  Now Renee will need to wait 3 to 4 months for everything to heal and then the crown will be installed.

The challenge for the next few days will be to control the swelling and hopefully prevent any infection.
