Oh the pain!

I love popcorn! I've admitted it, finally! It's not that I just love it; I eat it at least 3 times a week. Things have now changed. Popcorn has betrayed me. As I was eating my lovely snack late one night last week, I heard a crack and began to feel grittiness in my mouth. I spit it out and felt around my mouth with my tongue to see if something was amiss. I found that the wisdom tooth on the upper left side had a rather large section that was now missing with sharp edges poking my cheek. Being new to town, I hadn't yet found a dentist so I left it for a couple of days while I found one who could fit me in. Two days later I found myself in a dentist chair with a large pair of pliers in my mouth as the dentist wrenched my tooth back and forth, back and forth with all his might to remove the offending tooth. I thought he was going to rip my head right off my neck. It was unreal! Finally I heard a popping sound and it was over. Now I have a massive hole in my upper jaw and liquid foods are my new food of choice. Popcorn you have betrayed me! ...........But I still love you!!!



Oh no's! I had something similar happen to me, but my molar cracked and I had to get a crown done instead. Darn those backstabbing popcorns!
