Friday evening I cracked a molar while eating a jelly bean, exposing a sharp edge, which my tongue kept probing. I called the office Monday AM, got an appointment for that afternoon. X-ray was shot, Dr Morse examined the tooth, explained my options. The no-brainer was to extract the busted tooth, which was decayed, not worth trying to save. He used a laser to further expose the tooth w/o having to cut back the gum tissue. The tooth was extracted w/o much pain, and because the procedure causes minimal histamine production, I didn't even need pain reducer.
Good job, Ron! Thanks again!
