  I have bad teeth. Actually, bad is an understatement.  I have horrifically horrible are-you-sure-your-not-a-drug-addict teeth.   I have had countless cavities, abscesses, and root-canals. I’ve chipped, broken and cracked many. I’ve had or have braces, retainers and bridges. I have more porcelain in my mouth than you grandma has in her cabinet, minus the floral pattern.   I know more […]
