anyone lost front teeth from bike related crash ?
maccruiskeen – how do you think False Teeth at CYB got it’s name 😆
Haven’t lost any front teeth but manage to crack three rear ones falling off a few years ago. Must have grimaced as I hit the deck!! One was removed a while back, one looks like it’s on it’s way out and the third is on it’s second cap after I swallowed the first one in another topple!!Posted 3 years agoeveryoneSubscriber
Managed to smash 3 front teeth in knobbing about on a bike when I was about 12/13. Cue ~5 years of extensive dental work including temporary caps, 3 full root canal fillings, 1 tooth transplant, 3 teeth removed (pre-molars taken to get a reasonable transplant tooth), 1 week with a pre-molar for a canine, then finally 2 permanent caps and shaping of the pre-molar.
Teeth have now been fine for the past ~5 years *touches every wooden object in the close vicinity*Posted 3 years agopaul4stonesSubscriber
it looks better in real life
Yeah, the camera can be unforgiving. Looks good though, especially as it looks like the labial plate went with the right one. Lowish lip line helps too 😉 Excellent whitening result.
I came off a skateboard last week and broke my wrist! Time to start acting my age 🙁Posted 3 years agoceepersSubscriber
Broken wrist, Bugger! I live in fear of something like that (though not enough fear according to my wife! :-/)
The lip line is normally a bit higher but I had to numb him up to get the temporary comp veneers off!! The picture makes the ul1 look a little off angle but it’s better in the mouthPosted 3 years agocoreMember
Yup, aged 10 faceplanted the road/verge, had been going like hell down hill, wearing a baseball cap, wind got under it, I took a hand off the bars, end result was one tooth snapped in half, the other 3/4 gone. Also took the skin off pretty much every pointy/knobbly bit of my body, that was probably worse!
Had the teeth capped with the aid of metal pins ’til I was 17, had to have them re-done several times due to football, rugby & getting punched quite often……….
Had crowns & managed to keep them in one piece since then luckily, one abscess soon after fitting lead to some additional root canal treatment, which was nice…… Wouldn’t know they were crowns now, perfectly happy with them.
It did help that my dentist was the keyboard player in my uncle’s band, and a family friend, aptly named ‘driller’!Posted 3 years agoiaincSubscriber
…..so various pokings and xrays and she is fairly happy with the way my teeth are settling. The slightly loose one looks slightly odd on the xray, but she wants to leave it for 3 months and re X ray, as it may settle and could be a result of changed bite point, in which case it should settle on its own. SHe reckons it is only a tiny bit loose so lets see what nature does.
Still no apples unless cut up though 🙂Posted 3 years agotowzerMember
as a small nipper I was in a steep downhill speed war contest with the girls next door (they were on a scooter I was on my trike) I won at the cost of full speed face plant into a lighthouse – blood spattered whitewash and a lot of howling, I didn’t loose my teeth but they’ve been bent since then, partly because of the crash and partly as I had to be restrained by mum when attempting to punch the dentist, when he was doing the toffee tray for the brace he didn’t pull it down before trying to take it out of my mouth and it hurt like hell and nearly had me dragged onto the floor so I had a go at him and once the dust settled I refused to go back…….Posted 3 years ago
