Sierra Night


Tooth broken.

Wore my mouthguard last night to keep in in place. It doesn't feel loose anymore, but over the course of the day it became super temperature-sensitive, to the point where it's hard to talk because of the chill of the airflow.

Had to call home to find out which dentists here would cover me. I think I've either exposed a nerve or fractured the tooth. I made an appointment with a recommended dentist in the meantime, but it turns out he wasn't covered. Other dentists are now closed because I had to stay late at school for a worthless review session. I left a message with two of them and I'm crossing my fingers that they can get me in tomorrow as soon as possible. Must cancel appointment with other dentist.

I know it's childlish, but I feel like crying. I like my teeth, I hate it that I've permanently damaged one, it really hurts and I can't make it feel better, and now I'm freaked out that sometime before tomorrow, it's going to break further and get worse. This week is hard enough. I really, really do not need emergency dentistry on top of it.
