I still am very fond of my dentist in spite of some of the things I've had done. I had an accident 38 years ago that broke my mandible ( jaw bone) in two places and took out several teeth and damaged many more. I have had a slide hammer used to get reluctant temp crowns off, lots of crown lengthening (trimming gums lower on tooth), multiple full mouth impressions, and a couple of sessions of tapping a screw extractor into a damaged head screw holding an appliance frame to implants. I don't need thrills from an amusement park. Hats also serve to change facial proportions so swollen jowls are not so obvious.
