You will be ok if you replace it with a bolt on, titanium fang, costs shed loads though

Snail, you owe me a hot date and I'm a looker so you'll have to put out :D

There is so much shiite on this forum. Gothicghost, you don't need to have the tooth replaced, but you will need to have a symmetrical row of teeth. Ask your dentist to remove the same tooth on the other side. You need to have a symmetrical mouth to pass the medical and selection, something to do with air pressure in aircraft. Good luck mate. ;)

False teeth are a no-no in an operational environment, as they might fall out and block the air inlet from the respirator canister.

Same with aircrew, where they might mumble over the RT ... although the difference is hardly noticeable.



Dental implants, with a titanium base screwed into the bone, are expensive [£3k or more] but give a great advantage in biting fight.

You'll be OK if the tooth is missing from the side of your mouth.

If it's one of the front teeth, there could be a maintenance issue in the winter. The Army doesn't like central eating problems.

Teeth.... get them sorted now or you'll be spitting them out when you do compulsory milling during your first week training.......(normally fighting for best bed space)

And get them sorted in civvy street. Whatever you do don't let the army dentist take a look inside your gob.... they'll use you for dental experiments giving them valuable experience for when they get out and earn shedloads in the private sector.

Take me for example:

AFTER my first dental check up:




(Although drinking too much cookhouse screech (orange flavour) probably didn't help...)

If you've got the £3k plus for a proper implant ... I did, fortunately.
