Dental distress

I have been having a problem with one of my implants for quite a while now. Let's say since late September. It has been better and then worsen. In other words a bit of a roller coaster so I decided perhaps I had better have it looked at by a pro. So I called a woman who has stayed in our park, in fact she stayed specifically to get her dental implants installed. I have had mine since 1998 or thereabouts. So on Wednesday I had an appointment with an oral surgeon. The same one she had in fact. And for those who wonder I am not getting this done south of the border.
So I had some xrays taken and an informative consultation for general care. He had me make an appointment for a cleaning and placement of an antibiotic sleeve and that will take place on Monday morning in Harlingen. I will also be on oral antibiotics for two months. And he told me he knows they are expensive but he wanted me to get a Sonicare toothbrush. So $69 later I have one and I think if I had one of those wonder machines before this all started I would not have the problems I am currently having. So my new regimen is to brush morning and night and after every time I eat. That ought to keep me somewhat busy.
