Bones Aren’t Just For Dogs

New patient exam.

Patient has worn, broken teeth.

They hurt.

Patient asks:

“When you fix my teeth with fillings will they last forever?”

“Well fillings can last forever if you take pristine care of them and your teeth.”

“Oh okay because I like chewing on BONES!”

“. . . . . ”

“Is that okay?”

“Eating bones, ice, rocks, or concrete isn’t good for your teeth. I doubt your teeth are going to last very long eating on things like that.”

“Oh. Haha. Okay. Hopefully they will last then.”

Well at least I have job security . . .
