Recently, I had a molar removed. I’ll spare you the details, just know that it is now gone.
The process of having a tooth removed made me appreciate my remaining teeth all the more. Many of us in the western world are blessed to have access to dental care. This is no small thing. We must remember that when we’re apprehensive about visiting the dentist. The dentist is our friend!
Back to my molar. I was in extreme pain up to the moment it was removed. It hurt so much, I couldn’t even sleep which made the whole scenario worse. I couldn’t help but remember that infamous scene in Castaway. If you have seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.
As for gummy candy, all I can say is that I’m a fan. The absolute best gummy bears I’ve ever had are from a humble source: the generic store brand from H-E-B. Unfortunately, as far as I know, they do not make gummy teeth.
