    I always find that Dr Jack Daniels is a great help with dental pain.

    So the dental practice can't even answer it's own phones now?

    Seems not . Must be just wanting to phone back the ones they want to phone back , and not getting any hassle.

    I was considering knocking back the remainders of hubbys Japanese Suntory whisky bottle during the early hours. (Must have been desperate, I hate the stuff :lol: )
    Googled remedies which could have relieved the pain, so was downstairs applying the contents of the tumeric jar onto my gums and teeth at 3.30am. Might have psychologically worked for a for seconds before it disappeared down my throat :roll:

    Just had call back from dentist. Seeing me 1pm .
    Usually feel like I'm going to my death , but with pain so bad this time I'm actually pleased to be going....well, sort of :hmm:
    School dentist on Lammascote road (building now a nursery ) butchered me so much all those years ago ,with the trainees let loose on me, it scared me for life.

    Now the one dread , apart from having offending ones out, is the time having come when his warning that all the intensive work of bridges and crowns in the past is going to collapse one of these days and the whole lot will have to come out,has arrived.
    After wearing false gnashers on a full plate for 6 weeks while all that was being made up, I'm dreading permanent ones.

    Aaah thanks @Trumpet . I'll get some in for future emergencies

    Part of me is looking forward to false teeth, no more toothache/earache/abscesses/ wonky teeth.

    When I was a kid I fell off a pedal bike and cracked my cheek against the kerb. I went to that dentist too (next door to Anson House) and the dentist said I'd broken a molar and it would have to come out. It was the only time I ever had gas rather than jabs so I didn't feel a thing !!! (apart from a crater zone in my gob.) But the big gap sort of disappeared when my wisdom teeth came through as the molar up from it was pushed forward. I often wonder what would have happened if it hadn't come out, and there'd be a big fight for space going on between established molars and upstart wisdom teeth.
    Who needs a tooth war in their gob ?

    I once asked for them all to be taken out while I was under the anaesthetic , to save going ever again ..he refused :lol:

    When I had those on a plate , I just about started to get used to them by the 6 th week when it was time to ditch them. I couldn't say S's with them in, and had to keep ringing people at work quoting our order numbers which all started 'SW' . Had to say ' Efth' for ' thugger' :lol: each time.

    If it weren't for the cost, having all your teeth replaced with false (but perhaps not removable?) teeth sounds like a great idea.

    I splashed out on some oven cleaner yesterday and attacked mine. (Usually give it a wipe over when washing up after cooking, but amazing how much black tar-like stuff came off using the Mr Muscle stuff on it.) Face mask came in very handy for that as well with so many fumes from the stuff.

    Didn't manage to see my usual dentist who knows all the work he's done on my teeth for the past 40 years. Panic stations set in even more at that news when I arrived at the surgery. X-rays showed a pocket of infection under the one tooth, as well as rest of gums infected. 5 days course of Amoxicillin and if that doesn't work it's go back next week and fill their coffers again for an extraction or root canal in addition to the £22.70 paid today.
    In the mean time got to go for a deep clean tomorrow morning with the hygenist .....special offer £35 :o My usual dentist normally does a quick scale and polish while he's doing the check-up....which they cancelled.
    Can't get to see my usual dentist as "He's really busy "

    Wishing I took after my dad for teeth. When he died at 84 he still had all his original teeth in perfect condition , not one filling or anything. When he went into hospital they insisted he took his teeth out for an operation. They didn't believe him when he said he couldn't :lol:

    I had three wisdom teeth removed last year.

    I had a local anesthetic - I don't remember anything!

    When my husband picked me up they commented that I was 'very chatty' gawd knows what I was saying!

    I still have my removed teeth and get them out on special occasions!

    The carer had 2 teeth out about 10yrs ago, under a valium injection in Crewe, he decided to tell the dentist all my (not his own) secrets, bizzarely he also told the dentist that my blood was blue which made me an alien! Dentist was VERY amused. (I hate to think what was said).
