I went for my post op appt today. My surgeon removed all of the knots from my stitches- they are supposed to be self dissolving but they didn't. When I got home, I realized the doc missed 3 of them.....so I snipped them with nail clippers. I think I missed my calling. BTW as a followup to Dentistry 101.... the new crown didn't fit the rebuilt stump....and it was the wrong colour.....so the dentist did a new impression and the new one should be ready next week. It will be 3 weeks by then since the original crown broke.
