HI PEOPLE I'm still here. Haven't been online as no computer at home. My freak of nature tooth wasn't a tooth at all. It was a piece of toenail clipping or kettle scale (so to speak) erupting through the gum. It's now sitting on my TV set, waiting for the dentist to look at. I googled the matter and apparently you can get bits of bone working loose and coming through the gum. How weird is that.
I hope you're all okay. Sorry I can't hang around today. The internet gives me panic attacks. Well, kind of. Take care xx
