10:53pm: So I finally got off my butt and made a dental appointment, which was today at 3pm. Since Sunday my tooth has been feeling better but I was still kind of worried I might have developed a cavity and I was rather nervous when I got the dental office.

There was good news and bad news, the good, despite my lack of check-ups over the probably five years, my teeth are in good condition, they just needed some cleaning and a fluoride treatment.

The bad news? Well, the pain in my teeth is not from a cavity, its from teeth grinding! And unfortunately it seems it must be happening at night since my teeth are showing quite a bit of sign of grounding. Dang, I always thought teeth looked sort of jaggered anyway, but yeah no.

So, the dentist recommended I get a splint, Grandpa has one, although I'm pretty sure his if for snoring more than teeth grinding. It's about four hundred and fifty dollars to get one made, although my private health insurance should cover a fair bit of it. So instead of coming back later to get the moulds done - because why do that? - I returned to chair and had done then and there. Praise the Lord for dental advancement, last time I had a mould taken of my teeth it took like half an hour and it was horrible! It was still unpleasant but only took ten minutes.

Anyway, the upshot is that I have to go back next Tuesday when the splint should be ready and hopefully will be comfortable, I can't even even stand to have a tongue depressor put in my mouth so I'm a bit concerned...but I guess I'll get used to it.

I'll keep you all updated!

Anyway, I better be off, I didn't get quite enough sleep yesterday - shakes head - so I better make sure I catch up on it.

Oh! I almost forgot! Having stayed over at the parentals last night I went swimming in the heated pool with Mum at the Retirement Village - man it's been aaages since I've gone swimming. And before that we went to the weekly morning tea in the common room thing which involved scones, most delicious! :O)

Goodnight all!
