On Tuesday, I got to observe two surgeries. The first was a tooth extraction which was disgusting because of the condition of the tooth. I won’t get into too much detail, but the tooth fell apart after the surgeon applied very little pressure. I walked out halfway through. The second surgery was way better. It was the first step of an implant being put in. This involved putting a screw into the bone where the missing tooth was at one point. I liked this a lot more. I have been thinking about going into oral surgery, but I’m not sure how I feel about it. I think I would be able to do it, but I’d have to watch a lot more surgeries to be sure.
