Things that are pissing you off. - Page 2305

post #34561 of 64478
I had my teeth cleaned a couple of days ago, and they are concerned that I'm losing a tooth. It died a long time ago because I'm such a grinder, but now it looks like I'm losing bone around the root and am going to lose it entirely. Options are a bridge or an implant, and they recommend the implant. I have a morbid dread of the whole concept of implants.

If you aren't familiar with the joy that is an implant, here's the 30,000' view:

Step one - lose a tooth

Step two - remove the tooth, allow the gap to heal, get used to lisping

Step three - drill a hole in the jaw, allow to heal, continue lisping

Step four - glue a titanium post into the hole, allow to heal, continue lisping

Step five - glue a crown onto the post, stop lisping

Elapsed time: 6 to 12 months

Out of pocket: several thousand dollars

Aggravation level: infinite

FACK.

Potential Step Six: post becomes infected, implant rejected. Take heavy antibiotic course, let heal, redo implant, pray to all possible deities that it takes this time.

Holy shit. I'm a grinder too. I might have to cave and get one of those goofy night-time mouthguards.

My mom went batshit insane. My parents hate tattoos, and I keep getting them behind their back- on my third one so far. Has caused some fights. Somehow they found out about my newest one on Tuesday, there were some angry phonecalls, 'not their son', that kind of stuff.

Yesterday night, she told me she was going to kill herself, blaming me for it, then after we talked for a bit she hung up on me, leaving me to think that I had caused my mother to commit suicide. Fuck this.

Didn't get the part time job I wanted...I could have used the money and discount shog[1].gif

But they said I was a good fit and would be kept on file.

To state the obvious, your mother's actions were abusive and indefensible. I assume this is really about more than tattoos?

How old are you? Aren't you old enough to make your own decisions? Why don't your parents understand this? confused.gif

I used to be good at math; even got A's in the undergrad calculus and stats classes I took. Glad calculus is something I'll never have to brush up on--although I do wish I had retained more of that stats stuff.

It has happened to me before
The floss the dentist gives me always breaks, so I always toss it.

I always toss it; I don't need my dentist to give me an excuse.

Do it, your teeth will thank you for it down the road. I have severe gum erosion issues and destroyed the root of the tooth in question, all due to grinding.

Maybe you shouldn't have had that swastika tattooed on your forehead.

JSIA.

BTW are you a joo? Cuz that whole jooish tattoo taboo thing is bogus.

I thought there was another way they could do this. If I remember correctly, the brochure at my dentist office displayed a tooth that is screwed into a housing that is placed in your mouth.

get the implant, its a better long term investment.

sorry to hear this, but as the other member stated there may be an underlying problem here. frown.gif

Yeah, she doesn't handle stress well - think this just pushed her over the edge. Not Jewish, my parents just really, really hate tattoos. Think that me getting them means I'll never get a decent job/gf, and that I am wasting everything. Part of their reaction is also to the fact that I get them behind their back - but I do that because they hate them so much. I'm 23 by the way, graduated, moving out as soon as I find a job.

Had an important interview for one today actually - talked to my dad afterwards yesterday: "You should probably go take a walk, clear your head a bit so you can sleep well before your interview tomorrow." I THOUGHT MY MOTHER WAS DEAD. Ugh. If I'm going to get therapy for this, they're paying.
