Sorry to hear that, but it is better to get them out because they can cause a lot of health issues, even heart disease. Get it done now so you can look all pretty in your store boughten teeth! My husband has to get all his out, too. Most of his lower jaw teeth are out now and he has a plate. All the upper ones need to come out, as well. I told him as long as he doesn't come a'running at me with no teeth in all scaring me, we were good. And not to kiss me without his teeth in...

It could be worse bb ~ if you were a cow we'd advise culling. :eek:

Spend the money and get it done!
I do for sure feel sorry for you though, its not going to be near as much fun as getting a new cow or two. :cry2:

That's a lot of money for tooth extractions. I was looking at some of my grandfather's ledger books from the 50's and 60's last week. He had a turpentine crew working for him at the time. I saw a bill from the dentist in town for tooth extractions for some of the turpentine crew- $4, some $5.

Just a thought...my daughter's grandmother went to the dental college in Dallas. She saved a ton of money and was very pleased with the results.

Like I said...just a thought.

I'm a little confused as usual.
For teeth removal I understood $20000.
Now you say $1500? Is that a tooth or for the whole bunch?

I can still direct you to a place on Saturday night where they remove a lot of teeth for free. Of course any fine will be extra.

Bigbull you should SERIOUSLY consider going to Mexico to have the work done. I know several people who have done that and it cost about a third of what it costs in the USA. I believe there is a place called the Washington clinic where most folks go. It's right on the border and they send shuttles over to the American side every day and bring you back to your hotel at night. With extraction and fitting the dentures, you might be home in 2 or 3 days with your new choppers.

As far as I know the dentists are for the most part trained in the US, and they do good work. At the very least go down there for the extractions you will save a fortune.

I had forgotten about that. There are people here who don't go anywhere else. Altho, right now, with the border towns being under siege...I'm just sayin'... :shock:
