These kind: I just went through step 1, having a molar removed and cadaver bone grafted in. yuck! Just had the thought "I wonder whose in my mouth." Double yuck "And what part of them?" Anyone go through this before? She said it will be a 6-8 month process. Next step is get stitches removed, then in 4 months, they screw in the part that goes into the jawbone. That heals a few months then they add the tooth part. I'm concerned as to the level of pain I am in for. I am still numb and waiting for this to hit. Also curious about hot/cold sensitivity. Metal is a great conductor. The tooth they had extracted had a gold crown on it and they let me keep it. What's the street value of that and with it gone, do I have to sell all of my "Thug Life" shirts?
