Going to the dentist, and I'm gonna need suggestions.
« on: September 05, 2017, 04:14:44 AM »
It's one of the front two. Obviously, crunchy is off the menu in the near to mid future, but I'm trying to figure out what the hell I'm gonna eat.

I see broth. A future of broth

And I know I'm gonna catch poo for my v8 breakfasts, but sometimes I just can't eat. I don't mean I don't have time. I mean I can not physically force myself to eat, even with my stupid food requiring meds.

I also hope they don't suggest extraction because golly. That. poo.

I lost my 2 front teeth to a couple of pool cues when I was 16. Had a denture for around 3 years and then got bridgework.

bless'ed bane of my life and I'm on the path to implants.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

You can try meal replacement shakes... tofu. Obviously pasta ... yogurt ... you could probably get away with ground turkey , chicken or beef. Add some  taco seasoning ...

I drank a v8 last night. Thank you for the suggestions so far.

Things went better and worse than I hoped. When the dentist said she had to do cancer checks, my heart skipped a beat, and I am not looking forward to the surgery, but aside from the wisdom teeth, they didn't want to pull any of them. On top of that, this was the nicest dentist I've ever been to.

When I was little, even a clean checkup came with dire warnings of dentures. The last time I went to a dentist, they accused me of meth use.

Maybe people would go to the dentist more often if they were nicer.

Nah, pretty sure it's like dogs and vacuum cleaners. You hear that whir, even if if's just the water pick, and you regret every time you missed a brushing.

Melons are usually soft, too.  Many fruits can be blended into a smoothie.

You aren't supposed to eat them.

I'm surprised that they don't come with a health warning.

I was in a pub before the days of chips. It was either the cues or pork scratchings.

I rest my case...

You made the right choice.

I know. If I'd had opted for the scratchings I'd have lost at least 3 teeth.
