Bionic TEETH!

Wednesday, July 23, 2008
Okay, they're not really bionic, but it amuses me that people land here on that search phrase, so I'm using it.

I finally got the gold crown for my implant on Monday, so I've got a full set of choppers again.

I've decided this implant/crown procedure is the cat's pyjamas. I really had a good experience, and while I'm not really willing to go out and get my natural teeth pulled so I can replace them with implants, I would recommend this procedure to anyone missing a tooth.

A word of warning, however - my dentist, who really is a good guy in spite of his penchant for original sin, tells me that it is imperative to get a high quality maxillofacial surgeon. My guy was so fabulous, I was in and out with no muss or fuss when it came time to install the crown. I guess that's not always the case.

So here's to Dr. Hunter and his staff, who took excellent care of me. If you need an implant and you live in Colorado, Dr. Hunter is your guy.

No, no...I want Bionic woman noises.

But not a sleep-number bed...

I never heard bionic woman noises. I only ever even saw the bionic man in passing when I was playing at a friends house.

They are the same noises. Because machines only have gender in really, really sick Japanese Manga.

Been there, seen that. (On the train, I swear). Did NOT buy the T-shirt.

Y'know John, I'm pretty sure I didn't need to know that.

Then I shouldn't mention that Sailor Moon has been turned into...something prurient?

Random Michelle K said...

Sailor Moon?

Manga?

Michael reads manga. I don't get it.

That plant material never had a chance (with your bionic teeth).
