Bad teeth!
« on: August 14, 2016, 11:31:21 am »
Been fighting another rotted/broken tooth, going in morning to get it pulled. He is going to look at pulling them all. I'm sick of the pain and having bad teeth. I have had like 6-8 pulled over the years mostly on the bottom. This ones on top.

I really feel for you, Woodhauler.

I feel fortunate that I have not had an issue with my teeth other than a semiannual check-up/cleaning for a few years now.

But it wasn't an easy road to get there, I had some repaired and some removed, and the $$$ involved!

Wishing you good luck in becoming pain free!

I don't have any lower molars {for 50! years}, and plenty missing topside. I can eat any *DanG thing anybody can.
 Can't count the crowns in place and have spent probably about 1/4 of this years income on the remaining snags this year. Don't regret any of it as it looks to me like teeth in a jar suck too. But every bodies situation is different. Just my 2 cents worth. You decide.

Well back from dentist, waiting for novacane to wear off before I go to haul wood. Dentist was really nice. In at 8:30 out at 9!! He will be the one to pull the rest when time comes.

Glad to hear you have a good one. I had a root canal done and I feel asleep on her. I had one removed and the dentist gave me the shots and sat down and talked to me for about an hour before he started to remove it.
There is no reason for ANY pain. Let that shot set up. I almost walked out on one dentist and I told him why. I never went back to that one.
Yes,I may not be able to eat or drink for 3-4 hours after. That side is numb for about that long after I leave the dentist.  :D

 Doctors or dentist are all the same, get you in and get you out, they need more $  >:(. I'm on dentist # 4 and I don't think this last one is the 1 in 10  :( . My upper teeth always hurt more than the lower ones.

WH,

   Hate to hear it but glad you have a good dentist.

   I am lucky to have a good dentist. My daughter's best friend worked for him so that attracted us to him. He has been real good about getting me in on short notice back when I was working overseas and would only be home a couple weeks at a time a couple times a year.

   The last 3 teeth I had pulled I replaced with implants and I love them. It was expensive and a long process to get them in. First one had to wait 6 months for the bone to fill in then he drilled in the implant (think putting rebar in wet concrete) and wait another 6 months for the bone to grow around it then he put the healing cap and crown on it. The last 2 (Upper front) took an extra 6 months because when the bone filled in was too thin so he had to do a bone graft so another 6 months then put in the implant. The whole process is time sensitive and you have a short window to take the next action.

   On the 2 front teeth I noticed one going gray, went in and the dentist did a root canal on one then noted other one was dead so did it too. That lasted a couple years then he had to put crowns on and a cold Snickers bar pulled them free. When the Dentist found both dead he asked if I'd been hit in the mouth or other injury. I told him I'd fallen off my big horse a week or so before and might have hit them together then. He asked "Didn't you feel it hurt?" I told him "Doc, my a-- was hurting so bad I never noticed my teeth hurting."

I wish mine went so well!  I had three root canals each about 10 months apart.  First one was a bit painful.  Second one, there was nothing that would kill the pain.  It was the absolute worst pain I have ever felt and I've had some doozies!  I had the movie "Marathon Man" with Dustin Hoffman running through my head... :-\  The third one finally was nearly pain free.

 Was the second time a top tooth near the front? That's the one that got to me.

No.  All 3 were bottom molars.

I've got good teeth.  My problem is what my dentist calls "operator's tooth syndrome".  When operating equipment some of us clench our teeth pretty tight.  I've had three crack.  Two have been repaired.  One with an extensive filling that's holding well.  One with a root canal and a crown.  The third had to be pulled.  It was split to the root.  I wear a bite guard now when running my machines.
