HA, well there will be no "restoration", that was a tad optimistic of me, to say the least. So "as near as they will ever get to their former glory" is, in that case, now!! They are a million miles away from it. Come on, no, this can't be so.
Another quote, me on Thursday on the same subject "If it means removing the remaining teeth and having false ones, I will be mortified but if that's what it takes to smile again . . blah blah".
Mortified was an understatement. If that's what it takes, I might not bother smiling again.
Being my ever-optimistic self I have found
- It's only the top set of teeth (Big Wow Whopee-Doo)
- I will be asleep when all the work is being done (ripping my remaining 6 teeth & 4 severed roots out)
- I only need one more visit to the dentist for the impressions to be made.
- I might have to give up smoking to have a general anaesthetic due to my lungs.
