I finally watched this.Following on from dental matters discussion on this thread...
Loveable chancer Keith Duffy is doing a documentary on RTE 1 at 9:35 tonight called:
Keith's Teeth: A Dental Odyssey.
"Keith Duffy traces the fast-changing story of Irish people's relationship with their teeth".
I'll give it a watch before I decide to get dentures. G'WAN KEITH
I finally watched this.
a lot of it was about budget treatments in Turkey that were complete crazy cosmetic unnecessary and horrific.
I had to turn it off when one woman was talking about having a 10 y.o. plate of damaged teeth (rather than teeth being implanted individually) pulled out an replaced again in Turkey.
People with good teeth are paying a lot of money and tolerating considerable pain to have this nonsense done.
I was shocked and upset hearing about this.
BALD AND PROUDFriend of mine is an oral surgeon and I asked him recently about the Turkey teeth phenomena, he brought it into the wider area of dental tourism.
His opinion was that if you go to Hungary or Bulgaria for treatment then it's much of muchness to here, you might get a good dentist, you might get a bad one, but said he'd never advise someone to go to Turkey as the variance in quality at the bottom end is wild.
They've booming cosmetic industries in general in Turkey, loads of bald frauds go off there for plugs, people go for lipo work.
I had a notion reading all this horror over the last couple of days: I would strongly consider voting for anyone who could believably deliver free dental care. I think it's a total win, when you consider how it affects physical and mental health.
But dental health is physical health. Your mouth is a part of your body. If you had a bad foot that would affect your mobility and from there your overall health. If you had bad teeth that would affect your diet and from there your overall health. Gum disease is linked to brains finding it harder to flush out proteins linked to alzheimers. Taking care of your teeth is an overall lifestyle thing and if you didn't do it for 20 years they might well fall out.
Simply remove the eyeball! Dentists hate this hack.
