Up here they want a weeks wages to pull just one measly tooth.

I'm down to my last 4 teeth now and one of them is on the way out. It's loose and sore and flopping around in my mouth when I talk. I've begged a few men to punch me in the jaw just to knock it out....they're all chicken though...won't hit a woman. I think it's discrimination, if I were a man they'd gladly give me a shot to the jaw to help out...but noooo

DH is 6' 3" and scrawny as all get out...bones sticking out every which way. I've even tried to run into him fast with my jaw sticking out but I think he's gotten wise to me...he's been keeping his elbows tucked in these last couple of weeks.

Maybe I ought to find a sympathetic mule? one with good aim and a soft-ish foot?

Maybe you need to do the string and door-knob trick, Lee Anne..That oughta pull the loose tooth out, eh?

Hope you get it taken care of soon, and inexpensively!

Best!

Well this is a timely blog -- after a visit to replace a crown I cracked (cause I was chewing on a Bit oh Honey) in May, I've had my teeth poked, x-rayed, photographed, 1 root canal, 2 crowns and 4 cavities fixed.

Only highlight was watching the "price is right" while all this was going on in my mouth --- but let me tell you the price was WRONG... I have now paid about $3,000 out of pocket and exhausted my dental benefits for the rest of the year! But my grin looks good -- Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Oh.... I used to love those Bity 'o honeys! I suppose nowadays I could buy one and just suck on them, protect my teeth that way.

Yeh, I hear ya on the dentist bill, Christine. No insurance here either so had to pay. That hurt much worse than the shots, the drilling, the scraping, gouging, fitting, etc. I feel for ya.

At least you got to watch tv. All my dentist had was music and it was playing things like "I Feel The Earth Move under my feet" and "Blood On The Saddle" while spittle and such dribbled down my chin. Sad

Glad you survived!
