So last week the big day finally arrived.  I was so excited because I was finally assisting with the surgical extraction of a wisdom tooth!  I’ve done hundreds of simple extractions where the tooth just comes out, but I’ve never gotten a chance to assist on a surgical one. There have been many opportunities but something always happened and I always missed out.  Not this time!  It was the coolest thing!  We had to cut the gums to get the tooth out, and after it was finally out doc put in sutures to sew up the hole. The tooth was so big that I had to take a picture of it so everyone could see.
