Mona Lisa- Not

7 Feb

If you read my last post, then you know that I had plans to get a dental flipper to fill in the hole where one of my teeth used to be. I got it last week, and have been wearing it faithfully since then. As I suspected, I hate it. So, here’s my ode to the dental flipper.

How my dentist sees my dental flipper: a work of art. (Yes, I took a few liberties in my photo-editing program to give her some big white teeth.)

What I feel like is in my mouth. I call this a dental flapper.

The photo doesn’t do it justice. Professorgrrl says this photo looks like a piece of raw chicken sitting on a toilet. The “toilet” is actually a carrying case, Professorgrrl. I guess if you think it looks like raw chicken, then Tucker the Beagle would likely think the same thing. Note to self: keep it out of his reach.

    So Sad!!! Try a whole mouth full of Plastic— Or better yet- avoid it. Took me a month to learn to taste food again. The full flapper is SOOOO Bad!!

    I am a new follower also – came over from the XLH newsletter. Thanks for writing this blog; hopefully we can get to know you and what you are going thru and we can share our experiences. I am 54 and also have XLH and you are so right – once I got to 50 it seems to have gone down hill from there.
