"Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?


Recommended Posts

Dentist. Crown needed and that horrible filing and fitting occurred on Aug. 30 for a tooth with fractures. The temporary crown fell off in 3 days. But it doesn't feel too bad. Placement of actual crown will be on Sept. 13. He was hinting that another one might have fractures too. But I think I will put that off for a while. :classic_rolleyes:

 

My old dentist, that I had for almost 50 years finally retired in his 70's. I'm not too sure about this new dentist and his additional charges and additional recommended procedures. :classic_unsure:

My dentist has learned very well how to compromise.😉 Dentists these days seem to love x-rays. I do not.

Knock on wood I have made it to 55 yrs old with no cavities or dental issues.  Same for my brother and he's 59.

I like how my teeth feel after dentist cleaning but dont like how it feels while she is cleaning.

LOL...tell me about it! Just started at a new dentist and they took like 30 x-rays as part of an initial visit. 

 

Mine has started taking macro photo's and showing them on a TV screen. Not pretty

In January I have in store a bone graft and dental implants on the right side of my mouth, lower.

 

In my younger days I used to chew on ice and now I am paying for it after broken teeth as well as dislodged crowns not repairable.  

 

Waiting for the new year for a new deductible.

 

Moral of story.

Dont chew on ice.

 

Singinalot, beautiful pictures.

 

Tried posting before, but lost in wherever.

I'd go for a cleaning every month if I could.

 

I also love my dentist.

I used to do that too. But I think it was when I had hyperthyroid issues. I don't do it anymore, but I think it explains the tooth fractures later in life. My eyes never quite recovered either. 

 

Absolutely gorgeous photos Crystal! :classic_biggrin: What a beautiful area and you have captured it wonderfully in your photos and videos. :classic_biggrin:

Good morning.

Those photos of @singinalot are fabulous and remind me of all the wild west western films I used to watch.

It is currently 66°F and sunny but it was raining heavily an hour ago.

Wishing everyone a lovely day.

Take care and stay safe.😷

Graham.

Andrew, hope you'll feel better quickly!  We just got home from our dentist.  Jim has been going there for the past 3 Wednesdays for a root canal.

 

Separate trip for same root canal?  Ouch...must be a tough one.  🤕

I went to the dentist today too. Just a cleaning.

 

Bucky and I have appointment coming up next week once we are home.  Cleaning...but I am still having issues with one of the crowns (IMHO should have had root canal in that one before she put the crown on...but was not offered that or suggested. 😞 ).

Almost same exact thing happened to me.  Both crowns (unfortunately were right next to each other) were badly cracked, unknown to me except was getting painful jaw and some infection....which was why I made appointment.  

 

Sigh...apparently all part of growing older...broken bones AND teeth.  😞  

 

Akin to you... I had a wonderful dentist, that we considered a real friend for over 20 years...but he  also retired.  My new dentist is no where near as good, and Bucky really doesn't like her at all.  I like her as person, but she is no comparison to our old one.  Not happy about the new crown giving me grief.

What, you don't like glowing green in the dark?  😄  

 

Yeah, I am no fan of Xrays either.  I don't know how frequent flyers put up with it.  😮

Chewing on caramels in my youth did me no good either.  😮

The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand;
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.
We've had so many happy years -
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come, so let me go.
Take me where my needs they'll tend
And please stay with me until the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve - it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years -
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.
.

LOL!!  Looks much more delicious...but sooo bad for us.  😉 

 

Me..I love my eggs.  I get lucky a lot up here in Maine, finding local country farmers that have fresh free range eggs for sale.  🙂

Toffee pulled a lot of my fillings out.

Now I have crowns and several implants after I was told the root canals would no longer hold crowns.
