I have dental insurance, so going to get my teeth cleaned twice a year is "free". Also getting all of my wisdom teeth removed didn't cost a penny.

You'd be surprised but it's not free...group insurance can be costly especially if you are healthy, and you do the math it costs far exceed 2 dental checkups :P   Also don't know what company you are using, but most group insurances offering dental I've seen cover for 1 checkup per 9 months.

That's why I put free in quotation marks ;). My whole family has dental insurance through my dad's job, but it is indeed one checkup every 6 months (per person) at no charge. I don't know the name of the dental insurance company though.

It's the same as your group dental, dental is the optional coverage.   Some cover 60%(or 80%).

That was painful to read Robert......They can allegedly regrow the tooth but not the enamel ?  Yeah I can imagine having regrown teeth without their protective enamel.  You'd be in excruciating pain 24/7... Ask someone with thinning, sensitive enamels :D

What would be nice is to regrow the teeth without the nerves this way people can't feel any pain at all :P  This would be a good alternative to dentures !  :pseudo:

Robert that is so racist they have darker skin in India doesn't make them black or African. India is a penninsyla at the bottom of Asia. Get your 4th grade geography straight. :P
