Our Daily Sykes #388 – "Ancient Teeth"

This unidentified landscape reminds me of my dentist. About 20 years ago my dentist looked into my mouth and commented. "Ancient teeth. Our teeth get older than we do. Many of us are living far too long for our teeth. They were not designed to work after sixty years, or not so well. Now you may wish to floss, but it will make little difference. You will have troubles with these teeth like I do with mine. It is nearly inevitable. We carry ancient teeth you and I. Crumbling ancient teeth." Such honesty is refreshing in any chair, but at such a cost. My dentist has long since retired to play the best golf courses of the world, and let him grind his teeth. He has the best dentures that money can buy.
