Geeze Loueze!
I had a headacke / toothache from hell last night while posting here to Y'all so rather than write a load about how bad my head & tooth hurt, I googled emergency dentist in Palm Bch. County. I called all that said the had emergency hours but they lied, No night time work! So I made an apt. for 9:30 this AM. Got there late as usual because I just couldn't get out of here (work). It always happens right when I'm about to leave work, all these emergencies come up that have to be handled before I can leave. GRRRRR w/ head ache delux I finally got there about 9:50 but they were so nice. They took an xray and the good dentist said it was a virgin tooth, no decay, no filling but next to a hole where I had one pulled about 10 years ago. An upper molar that split right up through the root like a split log! This one did the exact same thing. The Doc took pictures of it in my mouth and after pulling it out he showed me. He said there is no way to save it just like the doc said 10 years ago w/ the other one! Then he asked me if he could have it to add to his collection of unusual teeth. He asked me if I ever had a violent accident that would have smashed my teeth closed? I asked does a 120' flight off of a motor cycle landing on my head and splitting my helmet in two count? Or maybe a head on collision in a two seat Porshe that cut my friend the driver in half killing him and throwing me up through the T roof breaking my neck w/ my legs still in the car dislocating my left hip and shattering my pelvis leaving me in a coma for a week and a half? He said something like that would probably do it and it. He said it started as a small crack in your tooth which travelled like a crack in a winsheild over the last 30 years till now! Wow, I'm still paying in the weirdest ways from my stupid youth! Anyway, here I sit at my desk trying to eat some pasta w/out getting any in the bleeding hole! Happy days! At least the head/tooth ache is gone!Then at 3:30 off to the MRI to finally get my neck and back filmed for my Doc! First time in about 5 or 6 years. Yes, I've been putting it off that long! Being with Y'all here has got me motivated to try and start taking better care of myself. So if I haven't thanked each and every one of you lately, THAY ALL Y"ALL foor all the kind words and soft hugs!
Your Friend,

Geezee Pete, never heard of a Virgin Tooth..Wish I knew what to says, but so glad that it's not
a pain for you anymore...I'm missing teeth, I have two permanent baby teeth, which the dentist
likes to wiggle and I just wanna yank his hair out, like I have money for implants or crowns...

Well Pete, so sorry about going on and on in your post, good luck with the MRI today as I know
they are hard for you, wishing you the best...
Keep us posted

Tooth pain stinks but at least it usually pretty easy to figure out and fix. I just hate that even with insurance, it cost so much.

I went to the dentist yesterday. I knew I needed a lot of work, a medication I had to take for a while really wrecked my mouth. I was really glad I was sitting down when the dental casually gives me the total - $12,000.00! Yeah sure. For that price, these new teeth ought to take the calories out of the food while they are chewing.

Good luck with the MRI.

Thanks Chart, I do apreciate the post! Permanent baby teeth? And you thought a virgin tooth was odd?
I hear you Dagger, after he pulled my Lincoln log tooth the dentist said I do titanium implants w/ porcillin crowns and the girl up front will tell you ALL about them when you leave! Cha Ching! $5 grand each! x 6 or 7 missing now, lucky for me I have big lips and none of the missing ones are up front! I can't crew very well anymore but at least I don't look like a hill billy yet!
So onward & upward, let me tell you about the house of pain I visited this afternoon! No, I think the MRI experiance should have a new thread! So I'll see Y'all there!
Your toothless hillbilly friend,
Pete
