Dentist and vacity

I got some pain in my teeth. I have a few holes…

Is there anything I can do to fix it at home rather than paying my life savings for a dentist visit? Or would that hurt?

Cant you just put a thing on it and fix it?.. I dont want to eat cans of corn for the next month.

1: Harden up.
2: Get your drink on.
3: Find some pliers.
4: Get in there and yank that sucker out!
5: Get your drink on.

Put a thing on it? No, it would keep rotting underneath. You could follow Chris’ advice. I would go to the dentist.

I dont want to drink alcohol. And I think that could hurt still it is a important tooth. I am going to try to go to the dentist, maybe they will XRay only the tooth that hurts to save money. Or I am going to dig around for coupons.

Man i wish my teeth were not so cavity prone

I’ve heard about comedy. I’ve heard about stand-up comedy. Now, my dear JREAM, are you a on-line stand-up comedy guy ? :wink:

I’d suggest going to the dentist and getting them sorted out professionally - if you don’t I think you’ll find talking to a girl a lot more difficult! :rofl:

Teeth are very valuable. Worth spending money on.

Perhaps you should also reconsider your brushing mechanism and frequency, and your diet.

How long do you intend to carry on living JREAM? Teeth typically last at least until you get into old age - assuming you get them seen to by a dentist.

If you leave them until they have rotted too much you’ll have a lot missing and will need corrective work like false teeth fitted. That will be several times more expensive and problematic in the longer-term than minor preventative work done while you are still young.

I took you guys advice and am going to dentist in a good week. Bummer. I decided to go to a dentist who is asian because they can be trusted in their craft. I don’t like the white man working on my teeth, they are too aggressive.

Diet got nothing to do with cavity, it all depends on your teeth genetic

I’ve got one word for you: sugar

:wink:

My mom told me drinking milk helps your teeth become strong lol :smiley:

Well if you don’t like the dentist working on your teeth, then go to another one.

Man Jream, I’ve gotta say I’m starting to think you do stand up comedy in your spare time myself!

Honestly, I’d worry less about a dentists nationality and more on what kinds of insurance or discount dental plans they belong to, if cost is a big concern for you.

Even with dental insurance it usually doesn’t cover more than $1-2k in work a year and it can cost that much to root canal and crown a tooth! I’d recommend looking at dentalplans.com to see there are any affordable plans that dentists in your area may go to - and by all means you should also ask your family and friends if they have a guy they like they can refer you to.

Good luck!

Go to India. The dental care there is cheap, and first rate! If the travel costs are less than the cost of getting your work done locally, it’s a winner for you.

Lots of people are going there to get dental work done.

Check it: India dental tourism

It’s a double win. India will most definitely award you with a stomach disease, so you’ll need to go to Mexico to fix that one cheap.

Just think about what Mexico will give you and where you’ll have to go from there and you’ll probably picture the medical version of a Jules Verne adventure around the globe :lol:

Mexico will give you a cocaine habit. Then you’ll have to go to Colombia to get it cheap from the producers. There you’ll probably steal a car while high and drive into Venezuela to avoid the authorities (and for the cheap petrol). There you lose a testicle when you get shot with a rubber bullet during an anti-Chavez protest. You move onto Manaus, Brazil, a where a witch-doctor gives you drugs to grow a new one, and then make your way down the Amazon into Peru, where a Candiru swims up your urethra. People tell you the only way to have it removed is to cut the whole thing off, so you fly to Cuba to experience top-notch healthcare. Not only do they remove the offending fish without mutilating your manhood, but they fit you a new testicle, which is just as well because the Brazilian drugs aren’t working. In return, you become a communist and join the Cuban army, which is sent on a peace-keeping mission to Tunisia. Your platoon commander is a fan of Gaddafi, so you “accidentally stray” into Libya and get acute radiation poisoning from some plutonium you weren’t supposed to find. One of the soldiers is actually an undercover CIA agent, and he calls in the cavalry, who whisk you back to Virginia, where you become a lab-rat helping them figure out where the Libyans got their plutonium from. One of the scientists is a pretty sexy lady in glasses and a labcoat (which you love), so you get married and once you recover, you buy a wig and move into her house and have kids. Amazingly, they turn out all right, although one of them oddly has a Venezuelan Spanish twang.

So, it might all turn out pretty well.

raffles, dude… i want some of whatever it is you’re on…

:cool:

Raffles, I’m mad at you!

I mean, no Europe?!

:rofl:

I’m sure it’s not the last time he has to go to the dentist!

Rudy, I make it myself - procrastination extra strong. Guaranteed results every time.

Who accepts coupons? Your dentist? Have fun. :lol:

If it’s that bad (that you get cavities often even after brushing & flossing regularly), they can cap your teeth in plastic. I’m not sure what the exact procedure is called or if they still do it. I just remember it was an option a family member described to fix something or other.
