The infection actually ate away some of the jawbone so they had to take a piece of one of her ribs (!), grind it into a powder, pack it into the hole once the infection was completely gone, wait a couple of months for the ground bone to become one with the jawbone, and then do the implant. Luckily she had good insurance, but the lost time, pain and aggravation was terrible. If I ever have this problem, I think I'll go straight for an implant, like WereBear.


I think that they call it bone grafting to add bone back but how did they take the rib bone from her, did she go to some sort of specialist to do that? I've heard another dentist talk about grafting but he had a pac which he showed me that came from a lab. I asked him where do they get it and he said cadavers...ugh!!! bet using your own bone would take a lot better with no rejection!

I'm leery of bone, or any tissue, from another person. When looking at an optional surgery a few years ago, material from a cadaver would have been used---they said the body did not reject it. I wasn't so sure.

Looked thru the recipes in The Dental Diet, and found the ingredients are 90% of what I already buy and use. Others are intriguing and at the least has me thinking I could try this.

Liver left my diet years ago. Mostly because it is not readily available anymore. When I started living on my own, liver and onion and bacon was my go to.

Chick pea pasta is a new to me food. One I am betting my boys will eat. Chick pea has brain supporting bio-chemicals, and my oldest will eat a can of these at will, so maybe he will find the pasta ok.

Pickled ginger is very easy to make, recipe listed. There is a recipe using fish heads. I have had the heads in the freezer for sometime-- just didnt know what to do with them.

He does have meal plans, and chia and flax are the only grains I see.

Will look for ginger this weekend to make the pickles.
