Well, I had my one month appointment yesterday (I was a bit late, I'd like to think that traffic caused the lateness, but in reality, it was the fact that I stayed at work until the last possible second, leaving downtown Seattle for an appointment in Bothell two minutes prior to said appointment). Clean bill of health, I don't know why I couldn't just do a Go to Meeting or something and have the dentist peer under my tongue without me having to waste 3 gallons of gas to drive all the way out there for him to poke my scar and say "Looks good! See me in 6 months to make sure everything is completely healed". Good news is that it appears as though the surgery relieved the pull of tissue on my lower gum, meaning I won't have to have tissue reconstruction behind my front teeth! Score for the periodontist!
