miser da'incisor - cross fingers


I had a damned tooth come out of my uppers today and immediately started calling around to see if I could get'er stuck back in.  Well, it didn't take long to realize that they (the ?Pros?) want you to make an appointment, then the office visit, lab work and God knows what else?  So I googled up "D.O.C. Repair-it", read the reviews (pro and con) and made the trip to CVS pharmacy.  Came home read the instructions (scout's honor) and stuck that booger back in the hole it came from.  Been several hours and all looks good so far but time and usage will tell I"m sure.

I put this in the Equipment Repair Thread because we don't have an Old Pharts aka Ripley's BION Thread.

I told my dentist the last time I popped the crown off one of my teeth that I was going to J-B Weld it back (that was pop off #3) instead of waiting a week then spending $175 of which I sometimes get 50% back on insurance. The other crown, so far has stood the test of time and is about the same age

Luckily my bridge only came off once in 20 years. I was eating a pop corn ball one christmas, found a big "kernel" I couldn't crack, only to discover it was my two front teeth!!!!

Don't remember how much it was to glue back in, not too much I don't think, and no other hassles. Must be about the first and ONLY time that's happened!

I have a few crowns or caps, a bridge, and a couple of years ago, I lost five front teeth; knocked them loose when i took a header and did a face plant on the concrete, and they just went bad.  Now I have a partial that replaces them, and it won't stay in when I try eating with it, first chomp and it comes loose.  The Doc has tried adjusting it a number of times, but it won't stay put.  Looks good when I am not trying to eat with it in, though.  biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

When I decided to go into dentures the dentist could literally wiggle all of them because my gums had turned loose of everything. Yes, it was probably due to my NOT taking care of them like I should have all of my life so now it was time to pay the fiddler. He told me that I could come in every few days and he would pull two or three until they were all out and I said "ain't gonna happen ! I want to be put to sleep while you remove all of them and when I come to I want my falsies to be in my mouth !" He did say that was the best way to do it but that it took some endurance and tolerance to pain before it would be normal wearing them. Well, he did not lie, it was a booger for about 6 weeks but slowly got better each day and now I'm glad I have them and don't have to worry about teeth ever again. The first few nights I had to wear them 24 hours with medicated packing between them and my "SORE" gums.. (FWIW, I was actively shoeing horses at that time alsodisbelief) I remember waking up the second morning and I couldn't find my teeth Well, I finally found them in the bathroom sink - - - - no idea how they got there but I imagine that's where I spit'em out that night. All is good now and I probably should get an extra pair made since these are my originals and "stuff" will endure just so long. I've been lining my own teeth since around 1990 with Cushion Grip - - - - before that they made my gums real sore and I had to use all kinds of crap to hold them in - - - - now all I do is soak at night and then rinse and pop'em in in the morning. Sorry I got so wordy.

My oldest son,, Chris now 46 y/o  has had to have all his teeth pulled and new implants done,, they did it all in 1 day,, omfg.gif,  he looked like warmed over death when he came out of surgery, had no clue where he was at or what had happened,, but they did a good job I guess,  It was impossible to get him to brush his teeth when he was a kid,, and he paid the price,,, but the carpenters union insurance paid for the new teeth,,, 

they implanted studs in his jaws and attached teeth to those I guess,,   disbeliefdisbeliefdisbelief

?most? of the people that I know that have had implants for a long time have had trouble later in life with them - - - - I guess the problem is that they have to be attached to something that is slowly aging meaning the jaw bone which degenerates with age like everything else. I sat and listened to my Wiffy tell her B.I.L. that implants were better than dentures when she has never had implants and doesn't wear her dentures properly and never has. After they hung up I told her that she just gave him some stupid information and didn't know what she was talking about. Did NOT go over well at all.

One more comment and I'll s'hup - - - - the "KEY" to being able to wear dentures is that they "FIT" and don't move around when you're chewing or talking AND that they "DON'T IRRITATE" your gums, no matter what you chew. It took me lining my own dentures for me to accomplish that.  Before I got that accomplished it was touch and go and I took them out a lot during the day and went without them !

So, are you gonna go see the chopper fixit man, now?

Rat, that sounds somewhat "disturbing".  My Dental Doc is, as Tom T. Hall put it in "Watermelon Wine", an old, grey black gentleman.  Now his assistants, on the other hand, are mostly cute, petite, sweet young things, and the hygienist is a wee tiny lady in her fifties.  They are, though, really nice to me.

 I really DON"T think (know) she was doing it intentionally , its just that they were so ( lets just say they were so fully developed) that it was bound to happen,,, I would say she has a huge  customer load,,  especially old codgers like me,,, but I ain't complaining ya know,, don't think she even noticed what she was doing,, but I certainly did  headbang.gif can't wait till my appointment  date,,,,, Sherryl will probably cancel itcry

 

 Her assistant was a real tiny asian girl,, maybe 4-6 max.. but obviously born in the usa  cause she didn't have  the least hint of a accent.

Even after the problem last summer with the one tooth, I still have all 32 but some have more filling then tooth from a dentist years back that needed to put hisw two daughters through college. My current dentist hesa fromma de olda contry - but his hygenist is a sweet 35 or so Y.O. nice looking lady who really does a good job. While she isn't so well endowed as BRs, does manage an occasional rub. And that one tooth - well let's just say that soon I'll have but 31 chompers as that tooth is cracked below the gum line and is loose.

Meller - try some J-B Weld once things pass. It might be the wrong color, but it will sure hold the tooth. I suggest a good cleaning forst thoughevileyeevileyeevileyeevileyeconfuse

I was gonna suggest superglue,, (colorless) but what ever will hold it in there will work,, just don't open you're mouth wide.. just a puckered smirk,,,,biggrin

That's what caused my crowns to fallout,, the old dentist I had for years was good,, but didn't leave enough tooth to last very long,, so the filling and crown fell out, when what was left of the tooth broke off,, now the stub needs to be dug out and , don't know what they will do from there,, implant ??   I hate dentists anyway,, and implants at my age sounds like a waste of money,,,,  both teeth were molors,, so its not like won't  I'll have even teeth... 1-3-5-7-9 missing,????

I have to survive the scraping and cleaning first off,,,,furiousfuriousfuriousfurious sure do have shoulder problems tho,,,, biggrin

Well, I have an update but I probably should keep my mouth shut until the tooth has been in there longer.  However, that's not my Style so I'm just gonna spit it out (pun intended).  This last week I was bare footed and went to set in my recliiner and stepped on something that kinda hurt.  Looked down and low and behold it was my tooth that I thought had gone to the great septic tank in the sky.  Obviously when the tooth fell out it must have gone under the recliner and somehow the recliner musta gotten slid back and "viola" there it was lying in ambush for my tender feet.  Anyhow, I did me a double cleaning and drying and mixed up another batch of repair epoxy.  This time I laid the goop to both surfaces and held them together longer than required and DID NOT clean around the base (ok so it's a little ruff there but at least it's there).  I have eaten several kinds of food that might affect it like pizza, burgers, ribs and chicken fried steak and ?????SO FAR????? it is still in tact.  Fingers Crossed again.

Now, if I'll get off of my butt and go get another set made before something else happens, I'll be good to go for a while. I've had this same set since the late 80s and I know people that have already had to have several sets made in that length of time. Kinda reminds me of that song:

"Put food in your tummy tum tum tum tummy"
"tum tum tum tummy tum tum"
"but if you haven't any teeth up above or beneath"
"you can gum it with your gummy gum gums"

Went to the dentist this morning for the first round of deep cleaning, they are doing it in 4 different sittings... I was really dreading it .. but it really wasn't bad at all,, just rubbed a little pain killer on the gums and started scraping,, the worse part was the gagging on the residue that runs down you're throat,,

I looking forward more to the work the boob endowed dentist will dobiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin
