So I had a trip to the oral surgeon today about my wisdom teeth. My appointment is confirmed for the end of April. That's fine. However, he told me that he's extracting ANOTHER tooth, my hidden canine. The one that's haunted my dreams since I was 12. The tooth that's embedded in the roof of my mouth. It will finally be gone, and not cause me any more problems! However, this means I will be missing one of my adult teeth. This also means that when my baby canine FINALLY decides to take a leap out of my mouth, I will have a gap. SURE there are falsies, but since I don't know anything about those, the thought terrifies me. Here is a watercolour of me without my baby tooth. Haha. FEAR!
I was thinking more and more about missing teeth. I have never seen a business person with a missing tooth. I feel like missing teeth can depict poverty, for if one has the money, one will have great teeth. Dentistry is so expensive, but also such a huge priority. So unfortunate. I'm awful at expressing my innermost thoughts, so here is a sketchity sketch.
