My dentist is a female. She took over a practice from another female. Both are super smart. Current one is hella hot too. Would bang if single.
Louisville or Lexington?

I got 4 wisdom teeth removed (which was a blast, btw), and afterward when I went to the dentist he said that I had a fifth wisdom tooth still hanging out in there!  :eek:

Shouldn't this have been something they noticed before they the procedure?
Holy crap! Yes, ask them how they missed it. That's a really rare case.  :eek:

This happened like 10 years ago.  It's usually a story I bust out during high end cocktail parties.

Rutgers, huh? Well I’d love to hear some more scarlet knight wisdom from you, I’ll tell you that much. And speaking of wisdom, I had five wisdom teeth instead of just four. they didn’t even know until they got in there.

Total scam. Buy a football mouthpiece and call it a day.

my friend said you need the special ones that are hard because soft ones make you grind harder.

my question is i need periomaintenance done, and have been to 2 dentists in town. one is a perio specialist in a nice office but i barely felt anything when she did it so made me think she didn't clean deep enough. another is just a normal dentist, and it hurt like a bitch, but i felt like she really got everything. in places in other cities i been in the past, it always hurt. which one should i go to?

My jaw has always been a little jacked. A bit of clicking and i have to reset a lot especially when eating. Some times it will completely lock, which sucks. Seems to be getting worse if anything, but still not like a huge problem. I've read that since its been this long I'm probably fracked and if I want to do anything about it, i'll prob have to have it broken and fixed. This seems like an awful thing. My dentist says I need to see an ortho, but i'm too lazy to set it up. Thoughts?

Also, why is the in network vs out of network so stupid?

JFC! This sounds like my worst nightmare. T's & P's my friend. Insurance sucks for all things, so I can't help you there, but I'd definitely see a specialist if it's effecting your life in a negative manner. I literally have nightmares about a locked jaw. That sounds awful! I'm sorry you're dealing with that.

How many teeth can I get pulled and still effectively eat food? Starting from the molars and working my way in.
Where did you get that overnight bag?

Do you like soup? Because if you do, you can get them all pulled. Maybe get implants if they're that bad and you can gnaw on steak all day.

Also, before you go to your next dentist, let me know where they went to school. I need to let you know whether they're trash or not. You're welcome!

What are the top dental schools? Top ones in the area?

UMKC is the only dental school I have ever heard of, where do they rank in the hierarchy?

UMKC is actually a pretty decent dental school. Top schools that I like getting docs from are Boston U, Colorado, Case, Tufts, Michigan, and NYU.

If you're not opposed to chiropractors, my ex had her TMJ fixed with chiro adjustments. Maintenance required but didn't require a broken jaw.

Is that why she ended up being your ex?

I don't think the chiro have her the bone. I do know the auto body shop owner and a car salesman did.

She sticks to the auto industry apparently.
