We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A common nightmare has teeth falling out of one's mouth. I have always had pretty bad teeth. And, like all normal people, I hate going to the dentist and I hate the costs incurred. Implants are expensive. A few weeks ago, we posted about Perfect Teeth. I don't need perfect teeth, just strong functional teeth that don't look like I am from England. Lost 2 front teeth playing ice hockey when I was 15, and it's been downhill since then.
There are new technologies now that will make implants obsolete, make removable false teeth obsolete, create large, perfect bridges held in by metal bars, etc.
Guy told me that I could bite spare ribs in half with those titanium bridges. Great party trick. I want some. As I commented to friends this weekend, when they burn me to ashes those teeth will still be chattering in the fire.

I enjoy reading the "farm news" every day. As a dentist, I can see through your writings that you have been encountering lots of dental failure over the years. If you would like, I would be happy ( and honored) to review your current dental status. I have extensive training in all phases of general and reconstructive with lots and lots of spent $$$ on continuing Ed. Not saying to travel, but a treatment plan and current x-rays plus photos would perhaps help you with a second diagnosis/analysis. Btw, I use lots and lots of 3D diagnostic stuff, and it is awesome!
My dentist made me a permanent temporary crown the other day out of UV cured dental material. He said don't get a post or implant yet, the technology is changing way too fast and will be much better in a few years. It's amazing stuff. I want that stem cell implant tooth!
