Tooth update

The good news:

No crown needed.

No root canal.

Bad news:

The broken piece went down far below the gum, so I will be having oral surgery on Monday, followed by more dental work ten days later.

The good news?

190 Euros.

She was so apologetic. She doesn't realise that in Canada we count these things in the thousands of dollars not hundreds.

Photos coming I hope...I am predictably having trouble with it...along with my internet connection, so if I disappear, you'll know why.

My dentist says I need a crown. Pretty cheap prices there....but the plane fare might make up for the exchange....

Sorry to hear that you have to go for more dental work than what you were expecting. Hope it isn't too painful.

Interesting place; great sunsets in Kota Kinabalu; preferred to peninsular Malaysia, more info and comments available.
