The two teeth that were damaged beyond salvation in my recent fall were pulled this morning, and replaced by an RPD. It feels weird to have this foreign object in my mouth. For one thing, it makes it difficult to enunciate clearly, as all of a sudden my tongue feels as if it's too big for my mouth, but my dentist assures me I'll get the hang of it soon enough.

I went for coffee and a sandwich immediately upon leaving the dentist's, to see what it felt like to eat and drink with this thing in my mouth. Perhaps I should have waited for the novocaine to have worn off first, as it wasn't a big success. I'll try again tonight.

Earlier this year, I started a 365 photo project, but then I fell off that ladder and into a gloomy outlook, and abandoned it. I don't think I'll resurrect it, either; but I started messing with Instagram the other day, after the world and his wife had gone before me, and I may show you the odd one or two here, before I get bored with it. For instance, this morning I looked up and snapped this picture of (the gable of) our old town hall (1595; the bell tower is a later addition of the 1600s). These days, it's only used for weddings, book launches, and the council's New Year's reception.

Leave the palate in whilst you sleep for a couple of nights - it worked for me.

I did, because I didn't know where or how to store it for the night. Do people really keep them in jars when they're not being used? I forgot to ask my dentist...

My dentist says never, ever leave your palate soaking in water overnight. Rinse it, clean it with toothpaste, but leave it dry overnight.

Mine lives, when I remember to take it out, on the top of my face cream jar! Within easy reach in case I have to leave the house in a hurry in the middle of the night! But I have thought of keeping it in my underwear drawer.

Thank you! My dentist said never to use toothpaste for cleaning, but I'll follow your dentist's advice with regards the storing of it.

And your icon's right: I didn't need or want to know what you plan to keep in your underwear drawer ;-)
