Mouth ulcers

I spent the early part of the morning on the way to the surgery sulking about my perceived injustice involving Manchester city football club in the recent Champion League match involving the team and the Barcelona football Club. In my own opinion Barcelona football team were a decent enough side and did not need the assistance of a twelfth man, the official in playing a good soccer match. The referees decision to award a dubious enough penalty kick and compound it with an ill deserved red card was too much for me to bear. Despite the most spirited efforts of the 10 man Manchester city side, the game was literarily killed off leaving them a mountain to climb in the second leg.

Now to the matter of dentistry, my first patient was one with ulcers which brings us to today’s topic.
