I wondered if Dentists would be redeployed for something like that. All healthcare personnel to the pumps. Another reason to stop non emergency treatment
A few years ago, I had a hairdresser like that – buxom Moroccan lass, who when she was doing the back, that would be a rub (was never quite sure whether it was accidentally or on purpose!)In my 20's the only way to get me in the dentists seat was happy pills.
When I needed 4 teeth out I was so high no pain for 24hrs afterwards.
But the dentist now can do work without any happy pills.
This through calmness & talking to me about what she is going to do.
Talks me through what she is doing & a brush of her ample breast against my face is a plus point!
Phone call this morning from my very nice hygenist. All non essential appointments cancelled until further notice, No surprises there. Still I now have plenty of time for flossing!As I
But it will be hand scaling only.
With high volume suction.
And no polishing afterwards.
Just had the guidance on aerosol generating procedures finally arrive.
Morning @SDFA,Got my new front gnashers in on Friday, very comfortable I may say. I was a bit worried that the dentist was going to cancel as my denture was being held together by about 3mm of plastic and wouldnt last another week.
I suspect we will be seeing a lot more of this - View attachment 457600
Worryingly I have had an e-mail from a friend, he tells me that he has received an e-mail from his dentist in Stourbridge informing him that the BDA has declared that dentists will no longer treat the over 70s, has anyone heard of this????And right on cue, a text from my dentist cancelling all appointments for the foreseeable. Only open for emergencies.
Unfortunately pretty much true for all non emergency treatments.Worryingly I have had an e-mail from a friend, he tells me that he has received an e-mail from his dentist in Stourbridge informing him that the BDA has declared that dentists will no longer treat the over 70s, has anyone heard of this????
Thank you, the info is helpful but it only applies to treatment during this pandemic, my friend seems to think that this info from the BDA means no treatment now or in the future.??And just to reassure you further.
Any with fever or cough are being treated in specific locations run by public/community dentists
Except we have no PPE, so best you can hope for is a prescription slipped out under the door to you.
Yeah, Leathermans are good for all sorts of odd jobs. I never left the firebase without mine.Morning @SDFA,
About 7 years ago one of my molars 'shattered' leaving a shard of tooth, so off to local 'dentist'. His words. "Toot, make like new one hour no anaesthetic only R/s600". I politely declined and left. Went home got everything ready. Had a good gargle of 'Jack', made myself comfortable and began.
Saw my UK dentist about 10 months later. Her only comment was "You did a good job".
Never had an issue since and glad I had needlenose.
"Gissa job la, go ed. I cn do dat".
