Zoiks! but I really wanna say SHITDAMNFUCK!!!
I was happily chewing on a piece of sponge toffee and I pulled out a tooth.O.o

It was a(n expensive) crowned and root canalled tooth and now it's sitting on the coffee table mocking me.
The whole thing just popped out. Shorn off at the gumline.
Now I've got a nice little playground for my tongue to visit when it's bored.

Can a tooth be put back in? I mean being root canalled it's like it was taxidermied and isn't going to die or anything, right?
Could a dentist re-install it, glue or sauder it back in place and bob's yer uncle? I don't know why I'm wondering, I couldn't afford it if one could. *sigh* I really liked that tooth too. Maybe I'll keep it in a jar and name it. How's Muldar the Molar sound?

The crown didn't just pop off, the whole entire tooth (root & all) came out?!

Yikes!

Some day when you have the money, you can have an implant tooth put in.

My future-mother-in-law is having that done over the Thanksgiving holiday.

You have my sympathies!

Yeah the whole tooth. :o( I'm still a little freaked about it.
I hope all goes well for your f-m-i-l.

Thank goodness it was a root canalled tooth!
I think I'd be in horrific pain if it broke off a live tooth.

Oh dear! I lost a crown last weekend, so I do understand, but not the entire tooth! Oy! My dentist was able to just cement it on temporary on Monday, but I do have to go back for some additional work. The "whole" tooth?

I can't imagine.

I'm glad your dental mishap will have a good ending sweetie!
I hope it's not too expensive.

Oh, man, that sucks! I know they can replace it, but yeah, I bet it's expensive. I don't think they'll put the actual tooth back in, though.

I'm missing a tooth, one of my molars, and when it came out (fell apart at the dentists--it was a baby tooth that didn't have a grownup tooth behind it, and it just went to pieces, literally), I never did replace it. That worked out OK, because A.) it was a molar so it wasn't visible in my smile, and B.) my teeth were way too tight in my mouth anyway, so it just gave the others some room to move. It was really weird having that gap there, though, took quite a while to adjust.

But I don't know if it's different having it happen as a grownup? You'd have to ask a dentist, I would guess, if you have one you can trust to tell you the truth and not just what will make money for them.

Also, heh--when I was in high school, my best friend gave me her wisdom tooth when she had it out, and I still have it, 30 years later. Which probably makes me kind of a whack job, but if you want to save yours, we can be whack jobs together...

::grimaces::
Your tooth broke apart in the gum?!?
::shudders::
I'm so glad it worked out in the end.
I'm lucky that this one isn't visible in my smile either.
(it's the second tooth in from the front)

It's official. We can be whack jobs together.
I still have the one and only wisdom tooth I had extracted.
:o)

HOMG! Your TOOTH!! That's crazy, I have no idea what kind of solution dentist-wise to offer you, but I will definitely participate in your disbelief. Good luck with having a tooth (or tooth-like object) returned to your mouth, poor sweetie.

MULDAR, AHAHAHAHAHAH. Also - really love your icon, btw. I think it's quite beautiful and it makes me all peaceful, mmmm.

hello little pickle.
Weirdly, my tongue is actually enjoying the new territory to explore.
I just hope that nothing gets in the hole and starts doing disgusting things. ::shudders at the thought::
