Aargh

.
A tooth broke off - completely - at gum level. It is driving me crazy and the dentist can only see me on Wednesday.

There are times when I am tempted to get them all ripped out and replaced with stainless steel. Seriously.

Gnash! Gnash! Gnash!

My sympathies, that has just happening to me too. Wishing you good dentistry.

I can say that gold teeth have a wonderful tactile feel on your tongue (and an abrasive feel on your wallet).

Oh, that's just hideous. I had a tooth partially disintegrate while I was eating spaghetti (thanks to the incompetence of the NHS) so I feel your pain.

Hope it gets fixed soon!

Titanium is better for the body than stainless steel.
Hope you're not in too much discomfort.

I hope it's not hurting. A good dentist can do wonders though.

The same thing happened to me when I was at Clarion South. Astonishingly it didn't hurt but the jagged edge created a mouthful of ulcers. It has a nice new crown - but now another has done the same! It's the third in two years - but so far none have hurt. Got my fingers crossed that's the end of it.

My dentist keeps saying "Not another one. I don't want you to have a mouth full of crowns." Does he think I do?

Platinum, ok. Platinum...maybe I'll have to have a best seller first?

The jagged edges are wearing away my cheek and I am dreading seeing the dentist tomorrow. Because of the pain? You bet ... the pain of the bill!!

I had a jagged edged tooth (one next to it was extracted on Christmas Eve) which was ripping at my tongue when I ate, talked, breathed. Luckily the dentist saw me Christmas morning to file it down for me as I was flying to the UK that day and was in great discomfort. Our bills are assisted, but not very much I'm afraid. Hope yours will be OK til Wednesday.
