Good news with my teeth never lasts very long.
The prevention thing works, sure, when most of your mouth is porcelain/crowns already and you only have so many more teeth to save.
But even the whole crown thing starts to fall apart before I'm 30. I'm pritti sure I'm going to have my first implant before I'm 30.
But then I think "Honestly, whats the point of doing implants one at a time as my mouth falls apart when I could just take out all the teeth, instead of waiting for them to decay, and get dentures!"
Maybe I'm jumping the gun. Maybe not. I mean I have the mouth of a 90 yr old I guess, might as well give up on it now.... save some money in the end?
One of my many crowns came off on Fri, leaving only the post, I came into the dentist today (Mon morning) and he basically said there is no bone for the crown to hang on to, just the post that was put in and a whole bunch of decay. Not sure how so much decay got into a place that was supposed to be sealed, but whatever my mouth does amazing things. He also said my gums either grew really fast in 2.5 days or they were growing up inside and around the crown for a long time so he had to cut a lot of the gum out to make a seat for the crown again. Kinda sounds like the gums grew the crown out. But whatever. There's nothing left to hang on to. But he cleaned out the decay and said the only thing for the crown to hang on to is the post and one day they both are prolly gonna fall out. And then comes an implant. And implants costs like 2 grand a pop. I aint doing that to my whole mouth one at a time while my mouth falls apart.
All that, emergency walk-in, clean out decay, and glue a crown back on was like $100. What does Obamacare say about that bitches?! Obama gonna make this worse or better? Assuming of course the government isn't on its way to the prophesied collapse already. I'm sure this is just the beginning.
I think my savings account for a new car has turned into a savings account to keep my mouth in tact. Needless to say the dentist scared me stupid and I'm kinda freaking out now. I guess that's his job and then takes yer money.
