As the 'looseness' progressed it amused my tongue to rattle the tooth about.
I visited my dentist last week for my regular check-up and, on noticing the tooth was loose, he offered to remove it.
I asked what would happen if I just left it alone.
He assured me that it would fall out of it own accord.
This seemed to me to be the more desirable path as it wouldn't incur any cost to me and I wouldn't have to undergo the 'numbing' up process.
Yesterday the wobbly tooth began to annoy me and my tongue just wouldn't leave it alone.
So I reached in and pulled it out:
If only all my current health problems were so easily solved.
