A stick to the face in broomball took out three of my top incisors and broke one of the bottom ones as well. I spent a couple hours in surgery last week to stabilize and reimplant some of the damaged teeth, and just went back in yesterday morning to have the shattered roots–and the third avulsed tooth–extracted. Next week is a root canal for the bottom tooth, followed by a crown. Hopefully I’ll start the procedure for implants pretty soon–depending on whether I need a bone graft, I may be basically back to normal in a few months.

Not really much pain, I’m just a little inconvenienced by having to eat slower, and my lips are kind of torn up but healing rapidly. Hopefully I can get back to full activities soon!
