I had surgery this week. It was periodontal, basically a skin graft inside my mouth, they removed skin from inside the top of my mouth and moved it to cover up exposed roots on two of my teeth. It looks pretty nasty, I'd give a picture, but some of you are squeamish. Anyways, the cause is apparently from my braces. When I was told to brush really well, I brushed too well and succeeded in exposing the roots of my teeth in 6 places. This surgery only fixed two teeth. That means I get to do it again two maybe three more times. They just have to wait for the skin to grow back so they can take it again. Now you may ask...Did it hurt? ...does Logan lack a brain? YES, it hurts, but worth it, I got two days off work. Thats all, good bye.

You'll have to compare notes with your dad...turns out he had it done too (before I knew him). Maybe it's partly hereditary?

Anyway, hope your mouth is feeling better!

I had no idea you were having this done to your mouth. Dad showed me his skin graft and it looks pretty cool. Now your mouth can match your foot : ) I hope you feel better.

Dang. Every time I go to the dentist they make comments about the gumline on some of my teeth. Never "you should have periodontal surgery" comments. Yet. Hope you enjoyed your days off of work.

I've got some of those, too. I asked a dentist about it and he said there's nothing that can be done to fix the condition. Time for a new dentist, maybe?
