Today I saw my oral surgeon for the last time! My jawbone is healing nicely and even though I have a sore in my mouth as a side effect of my new medicine, he says it doesn't look troublesome and can monitored by my infectious disease specialist unless it gets worse. Woot!
So I had my permanent bridge placed and got my new mouthguard today.
I just have to see my regular dentist in a month for a check-up.
What a relief. It's been quite the saga!
