I still have all my teeth. However, all four of my third molars (a.k.a. wisdom teeth) are impacted. Mga impakto!, as I call them. This particular one was the one that was aching during Christmas, probably when it partially errupted.
Tricie and her groupmates are graduating from dentistry this semester and so commissioned me as their “special case”. I always knew I was (were?) special.

Thanks to Tricie, Jen, Tal, Weng, Nada, Zel, and Dr. Javier Sotelo for the wisdom tooth extraction. One down, three more to go. Any takers? I’ll need lots of anaesthesia – I bite!
