I feel like a 6 year old again

My smile has been edited thanks to tonight's soccer game! In addition to my newly missing tooth, I also chipped a top tooth, broke my glasses and was a bit shaken up to say the least... I am thankful that Pete and I have a great dentist who was willing to see me at 11:15 PM to cap off the nerve (and allow me to drink water, apply pressure, and breathe without pain)... but will require a few more dentist appointments, and a change in glasses prescriptions before I am back to 'normal'. Let this serve as a visible reminder to wear a mouth guard! :)

Thanks for all the comments! Due to the nerve injury, I had a root canal this afternoon (11/18). The endodontist said that a mouth guard would not have prevented this type of injury.
