I'm going to try and consider this morning a success, despite the fact I am unlikely, at this point, to get anything done. I did, however, get up before I had to start getting ready for work. This is progress. I managed to roast my sleep schedule during the break, and then I went down to California, and now my poor little brain is quite confused as to when it should be going to bed and when it should be getting up.

Anyways.

My tooth hurts something fierce. I believe this is mainly because of abrasions during the dental work and probably the unaccustomed fit between my temporary crown and the gums around it. It is not severe ouch pain, just a dull, miserable ache. Last night it wasn't so bad, but today, I realized: Aha, this is why the dentist told me to suck down Advil.

Speaking of.

As someone who has lived through it, I think its more likely to be pain from the abrasions and not the crown. A crown, even a temp, shouldn't cause pain - if it does, something's wrong. (Is this a crown on a live tooth, or did you have a root canal done that I'm not aware of?) If its from a root canal, the pain makes sense, as does the advil - part of the pain from a root canal tends (in my experience) to come from inflamed tendons at the base of the tooth. (Assuming the nerve was still alive - I had a nerve go completely dead before the dentist even saw me, and got a root canal without novacaine.)

Yeah, it's the surrounding area, not the nerve or anything. The crown is on a live tooth.
