What a pain... But best to be fixed up, I fought dental troubles for years, finally found a sharp ex-engineer turned dentist, Dr Lee, tall fellow, fery good, saved many, but earlier days had left me with a lot of gaps, so caps, bridges, full upper, but finally all the old silver amalgams gone, stability... So then, he packs up, moved to the big city, more $$...

So now I'm with an old time local fellow, several friends, family go to him, so it's a fun time with the whole crew.. We have dental, still left from my final years at Lucent Tech, does well until major work. Then, we pay and pay...

Root canal, a few thou... But I went to a specialist, had lost several older root canal teeth years ago, rather not gamble on any more! Amazing optics, he can see down that tiny hole! part of why the cost, but an amazing tool...

Terrible teeth as a teen, I blame it on my parents, they had false upper, lower, I guess forgot to teach me to take care of mine, so by my teens they ell apart, old Doc Peck didn't believe in pain killers, $5 a visit, he'd grind until it hurt too much, do a temp filling, come back next week...

Anyway, get 'em done, I blame a lot of early illness on my crappy teeth...
