Get Your Dentures In Just One Day!?
Thugs attacked my Grandpa, and stole his car. In the ensuing fight, they kicked out his leg, and hit him in the face. His tibia broke and then when they hit him in the face, his dentures shattered.
Everything is okay now. He had a cast and they found his car (those awful people are still at large though). He could only eat liquids and semi solid foods because of his dentures, so once he got out, we whisked him right away to go get dentures in a day.
My Grandpa was really not picky about things. He did not care if they gave him snap in dentures or denture implants, he just wanted dentures in a day. He wanted to get back to eating cheeseburgers and living the life.
Thankfully, he got his dentures in a day, and things worked out. He even joked with orthodontist that he remembered the wooden dentures of Washington. The orthodontist actually told him that that was actually a myth, that Washington never had wooden dentures, but that people did use them back in the day. Another fun bit of trivia he told me Grandpa (though he tried to hide it, my Grandpa was nervous and this trivia put him at ease during his dentures in a day procedure) was that the first recorded set of dentures dates back all the way to 16th Century Japan.
Even I went back, since the service was so professional and since he was the best dentist around. Tooth enamel is the hardest surface in the human body, and mine were in pretty rough shape, he said. Not wanting to end up as toothless as your typical North American from 100 years ago, I decided to get help from the dentist with Invisalign, whose primary appeal was that they were transparent. The best part? It was all affordable.
