Doing herodontics again

Today seemed long.

On the plus side the sky was lightening in the east on my way to work and as I write this, the sun is still imparting a glow to the sky. 

But at work, the day seemed long.  It was busy enough , so didn’t drag.  In fact, I decdided to do a couple of fillings for a guy from out of town so he would have to make fewer trips down from La Ronge, and completely missed my lunch hour.  Maybe I am just too old to be missing my lunch – I don’t have the energy I used to have.  Or maybe it was the difficult filling I ended the day with.  That one bordered on what we term “herodontics”.  the last tooth in the arch and the filling went way down on the back side of it (distal) below the line where the enamel of the tooth joins the root.  Did what we call a sandwich restoration – using two different materials, one which can be flowed down into the far depths onto the root area and the other a regular bonded sivler filling.  A challenge.
