anyone ever fix a tooth cavity by themselves?

15 posts in this topic

i've got one and don't feel like running out to a dentist. i figure if i drink some scotch and my wife takes a titanium drill bit and gets out the decay and then we put in some epoxy, it will get the job done

any thing else i should know?

A hammer drill with a 1/8" masonary bit will work better. Make sure you use quick set epoxy so you can eat dinner later.

Good Luck

Is this a legit question. If it is, I would strongly urge you not to do this.

Cavity is a bacteria, simply drilling out the infected looking areas wont get rid of the cavity. Once the enamel of the tooth has eroded into a cavity there is no way to reverse the process unless you seek "professional" help.

You could pull the tooth, but if you use pliers, which is what I think you would use, you could end up breaking the tooth or you could leave exposed nerves which would be extremley painful.

If you wait to long, or you try to do it yourself and dont get all of the infection the tooth can become abcessed and you would need a root canal at that point which run about 800-1200 smackers including crowns.

Thank my mom for the info. Anything else just post and I will ask her.

Have you considered just pulling it and replacing it with an animal tooth. Contrary to popular belief it worked for George Washington. I am sure that your kitchen is a sterile as the dentist offices of the late 1700s. It's something to consider.

will consider it, will be planting sweet corn soon and last year had my patch ravaged by raccoons and so maybe kill one of those and use a fresh raccoon tooth, it might might even start to grow in

i been doing some pre-op experimentation with the proper novicane-effect levels of scotch. i'm guessing about 12 oz. to begin drilling with occasional boosters depending on length of procedure.

its like that comercial for some brokage company where the guy needs to cut out his apendix and the doctor says "cut below the 3rd rib" and the guy says "shouldn't you be doing this?"

entertaining post!

Just pick a non-rabid racoon. I also figured that you would be into a herbal pain killer given your user name.

I assume you are not from Woodstock, GA. If you were you wouldn't ask about it, you only need about half of your teeth down here in the south, it will rot out for you soon nuff. Wally Mart has shelves loaded with canned soup.

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
