Broken Teeth

August, 2014: I went to three toastmaster’s meetings in a row. They all took place late at night. On Thursday I was exhausted but didn’t recognize the symptoms: I kept falling asleep every few feet as I was moving around the house.

After my shower, I was transferring into bed and passed out. Halfway to the bedside table I woke, but there was nothing I could do to stop my body from falling forward. I stopped my downward motion with my mouth and broke five teeth. The front two already had caps so they broke way up in the root, which will heal. I had to get caps for the other three as they had split.

Several years ago, four of my bottom teeth had come loose and had to be removed. I have four implants there.
