Teeth Knocked Out

A stick to the face in broomball took out three of my top incisors and broke one of the bottom ones as well. I spent a couple hours in surgery last week to stabilize and reimplant some of the damaged teeth, and just went back in yesterday morning to have the shattered roots--and the third avulsed tooth--extracted. Next week is a root canal for the bottom tooth, followed by a crown. Hopefully I'll start the procedure for implants pretty soon--depending on whether I need a bone graft, I may be basically back to normal in a few months.

Not really much pain, I'm just a little inconvenienced by having to eat slower, and my lips are kind of torn up but healing rapidly. Hopefully I can get back to full activities soon!
