The Good and The Bad

I just got back from the Dentist and here the the verdict.

The Good? I got no cavities, and the health of my teeth and gum in general are quite good although the dentist said I should do flossing.

The Bad? Since I got no cavities, the dentist think the culprit might be my wisdom tooth. The X-ray shows that I have a big wisdom tooth horizontally nudging against the last tooth on the lower right side. So she recommend to have it taking care of, which means the minor surgery to take out the tooth.

Needless to say I am quite disturb by the news. Although it's not the first times I have been told that I need to take care of this. I sort of... well... I have been avoided to do anythink about this... It's going be relatively major for me, since it will be the first times I ever get cut open.

But the thing is... If I wait too long to do this and if I need to take care of it when I get older, it's going to be harder to recuperate and all...

So I think my solution would be, to see if the sensitivities still happens after a few more days. Then I will decided whats to do... I will be taking some days off from work afterward if I do it. Since I don't think I will be in the mood for work during the recuperating period.
