    After I get there never had any problems, besides hurting my wallet .... :rolleyes: I need some stuff done and have been putting it off for a while. Wednesday I sneezed hard and my jaws banged together. One of my teeth started hurting like *&%$$. Must have Jammed it, cracked it, or something. I made an appointment for 1100 today. Only got relief at 0430 this morning. So Off I go to see "Dr.Tommy Tooth".

    Good luck.

    I've been blessed with good teeth, I have 2 fillings, one as a teenager and one in my early 20's. They are on bottom teeth, the same spot, one on the left side, one on the right side. Basically mirror images of each other. It was just a depression in the way those teeth formed.

    My dad pulled one of his own teeth one time "mumble,mumble,mumble...I'm not going to a f-ing dentist, mumble,mumble,mumble" and that is a direct quote.

    The issue was my top partial dosnt fit good any more, after about 15 years guess it about time to have it corrected. Had one tooth that had to go anyway. No big issues that are pressing and I will wait till after I find out about the Eye surgery by the end of the month. Now that I have full control over my lips I feel fine. Just have to eat Oatmeal and Yogurt till noon tomorrow. He also said no hot coffee till then either ..... but like I told him....aint gonna happen. Him and his son have the practice and he is an old Navy Vet. Said he understood. I will wait till in the morning tho, will meet him half way.

    I had some similar conversations with my oncologist during chemo and my surgeon when I was wanting out of the hospital as quickly as possible. I stated my case and they read my body language, talked to me like an adult and we came to agreements.
