I went to the dentist about six hours ago and replaced the temporary tooth with a hopefully permanent one. The dentist glued it on, in addition to the needle that goes up in the ceramic tooth and down into the root. I was mildly surprised that it hurt (the temporary tooth had stopped hurting long ago). It still does, although I feel less than in the beginning. Or I may just be getting used to it. I am not really worried about the pain, but if I get an infection, I will be worried. Infections these days kill people, like before penicillin was discovered. A big no-thanks to all the people using antibiotics against viruses or "just in case", thus dooming mankind to go a century back in time. Meh.
