Default pipe wrench - 2 teeth

well I made a really dumb move,while trying to break a 1" copper pipe loose from a water heater in a tight area the galvanized nipple in the top snapped,20" pipe wrench to the bottom lip.it rolled 2 of my bottom teeth into my mouth.I managed to push them back in place,but they still had to be pulled.now I have this thing called a flipper and what a pian in the azz it is.anybody have implants?I have to get something better than this stupid thing.

I got a couple of implants about 10 years ago. Basically, I forget I have them. Best permanent solution available!

I've got two completed now and I've got another two on the go with one more to follow.

The procedure really isn't that bad at all, it's the sting on the wallet that hurts the most!!! I hope you've got an extra 10 to $12,000.00 laying around, cause you're going to need it.

If you've seen the artistry that Garett does to just a piece of wood, can you imagine what he has the dentist do to a tooth in his head?

Front teeth, go with gold!!! You'll fit right in (in some places).

i always told everyone at work that a pipe wrench is the most dangerous tool in the shop. I have the bruised ribs to show for it too!

Sorry to hear about your experience.

I've seen crowns for that, but not an implant.

probably going to be $3k. The flipper is the worst. If you ever break it Superglue works...don't ask me how I know.

I second the 3 K. I had one done and all toll with the extraction and implant and all was almost 4. Maybe they will have a 2 for one special.

I got a quote recently - extract 2 teeth 2 new titanium post implants and crowns for 6K.
I have 2 existing implants done @ 1988 and as the poster above said you dont even think about them.

I recently pressure checked the rafters in a garage with my cranium which resulted in FIVE loosened crowns! There goes my boat money.

Anybody ever go to the Philippines for implants? I need two, and it's not so far away for me. Has to be cheaper than the US of A, as long as they use real metal.
