  • I have a few friends who have one or two false teeth that are "cemented in", whatever that means. They look fine, but they do occasionally fall out. They then have to go to a dentist and have them replaced/ re-cemented.

  • Well there is bridge work - where they "bridge" a fake tooth in between two healthy teeth, partial dentures, dental implants - which are permanent but very $$$...

  • I have Dystonia in my neck and right arm. I was on all kinds of different medicines to relax my muscles. The medicines rotted my teeth so i have a denture on top and i have like 8 real teeth left on the bottom. I'm not on any medicines anymore. I'm haveing botox treatments now well I'm on Baclofen to help relax my muscles at night so I can sleep.
