New hair-do

All I want for Christmas ...

Had to go for another impression for my dentures this morning. :-(

Apparently the last one had a problem and didn't get all the existing teeth.

This means the new gnashers are going take another week to arrive.

At this rate it'll be 2004 before I get them! :-((

The saga of the teeth!

Once upon a time there was this silly boy who stopped brushing his teeth and didn't go to the dentist because he was scared of needles.

You can guess what happened! :-))

25 years later all the nagging by his parents and friends paid off and he finally plucked up the courage to go and get them sorted. ( Maybe the fact that he hoped someone he really fancied would take more notice if he had good teeth was also a factor. :-)) )

Anyway 1st of April this year he started the treatment, and at first all went well as the dentist was a really nice bloke and managed to find a good balance between number of extractions and number of injections.

Anyway after a while problems started. Not because 'our hero' got cold feet or because the dentist slipped up. Oh no, the people he worked for started sending him to site which meant missed appointments. Then the lab doing his dentures had problems with the impressions of his gums. Looks like a 4 month job will take 6 1/2 months. :-((

Ho hum!
