I need to tell everyone something so I don't feel so awkward when I come. I am in the process of having a implant done on my front tooth. Surgery for phase two will be on this Thursday.
The thing is that I have what they call a "flapper" fake tooth for the time being. The thing is that I can only wear it for so long before it starts to make me gag. At that point I need to take it out and go toothless. Everyone at work knows so, I no longer think about it if it has to come out before the day is done at work.
I know we will all be together all day and evening and I have never made it that long wearing the flapper. At some point during the day I will end up having to face everyone without a tooth, which is sort of embarrassing, but i don't want to miss out on things and hide in my room.
Thanks for your understanding and letting me share this before it becomes a reality in front of everyone.
