The dentist told me to avoid chewing on that side for a week and not to get any hot or cold liquids on the tooth. Drinking isn't a problem as I have let my tea cool down and am drinking it through a straw, as I would a G&T if I wasn't giving my liver a rest following Saturday night's overindulgence. It's food that's causing me grief because, following the injections and the tense state I was in, I can now only open my mouth about half an inch. I tried to eat a chip and it wouldn't go in so I had to shave bits off and poke them between my teeth. At this rate, I'll soon be under 9 st, which would be absolutely brilliant but tooth trauma is not the way to go, diet-wise, believe me.
