I hope you're doing better with your new "choppers". I've had similar problems with my teeth all of my life. It certainly all makes sense now that I know that this is a symptom of Sjogren's.
While I was teaching, I was covered under the district's great dental plan, as well as the plan for the AF Reserves. I took advantage and got a large number of my teeth crowned and even got one implant.
Man, did I hate the proceedure for getting that implant. Now, I no longer have any dental insurance, so I hope that what was done stays put!
