I don't like this pitting. There's no real bite to it.

Needs a bit more to chew on.

Yes. It's odd. And in other ways, dentures are very similar to real teeth.

Don't believe everything that you read about teeth on the internet is accurate.

Indeed, I find most threads about dentistry contain floss information.

Dentures are like bats. They come out like the stars at night.

Joke thread?

Hey, some people truly get very agitated over small dental problems. Why just yesterday I dropped my toothpaste on the floor. I was crestfallen.

And I still remember last summer when I was going for a week-long hike on the Appalachian Trail and I forgot to pack my toothpaste. I was very upset. I ended up wandering around aimlessly.

That happened to me, but fortunately I was in New England, and could just follow the drumming.



(You know, the drumming. From the toms of Maine.)

"Different to" is a Britishism, or at least it's used a lot more in the UK than US.

No one knew I had a dental implant until it came out in a conversation.

My only experience with Polident is when I accidentally hit my neighbor's pet parrot with my car.

Well mainly in that they don't have carries in them, and don't need root canal therapy.
