Teeth Aren’t Toys

Had a fun one come in first things this morning.

A patient needs a repair on their denture.


You’d think it’s because they used it for chewing and broke it on something hard. Or maybe dropped it. Or it’s just old and needs a refresh. Or because it’s 9am on a Monday.


They let their kids play with it.

I’m sorry but with the immense materialism present in the world who in the heck thinks playing with someone’s dentures is a good idea? Or FUN?

“Hey mom! Look at the evil teeth attacking the city! Rawrrrrr”.

That’s gross.

Get them a fidget spinner. Or some vampire teeth. Or build some teeth out of Lego so at least you can fix it at home with your own blocks.

Patients . . .
