    I can't remember who it was, but I recall reading in the book of his circumnavigation in a small yacht, somebody performing an appendectomy on himself.

    Isn't there some famous quote about a doctor working on himself as having a fool for a patient? Home dentistry? OK, I can see that in an emergency, but when you guys start talking about do it yourself hip replacements, I'll have to draw the line πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜

    Please don't do what I did. A crown on a molar came loose and I glued it back on with CA (yes I did know it was poisonous). Unfortunately when I put it back on I accidentally turned it through 180 degrees. Couldn't close my mouth properly until the glue decayed. 😁

    I had some sharp edges on a tooth and just used a diamond coated nail file. So much better than a points file!

    Talking of glue, about six weeks ago I had a bit of an accident. I was spray painting Düsseldorf in the garage. I have an electric door which I have a habit of ducking under whilst opening. Whilst leaving the garage, I got things wrong and lifted my head too early and struck one of the mechanism brackets. The result was a 5cm gash on the top of my head. The boss is a nurse and she insisted I went to A&E. Cannot argue with a Hungarian Nurse. After going through screening by a doctor and a triage nurse I got to see a doctor. He cleaned the wound and then glued it back together. It worked very well but took three weeks before I could get it all out of my hair with a lot of hair loss where I had pulled out the bits.😊

    That was the second time it came loose within a year Nerys.
    The dentist's assistant messed it up in the first place!
    When I finally got to the dentist and he gave me a €30 bill I told him 'You must be joking!'

    Dentists would dread you sticking caps back in etc, it may do them out of a bit of business if it got around that such DIY repairs were acceptable.

    Last time I was at the dentist (February) he asked how my modeling boats was doing, and would I like a bag of used dental burrs (about 50) of course the answer was Yes! hardly used, won't have to buy any for quite some time, worth mentioning to your dentist, if he's the friendly type, can he save some used burrs for you.😊

    "the next time I loose a cap I'll just glue it back with ca glue....he panicked and said Nooooo!"
    Don't see why Joe!
    About six years ago I did just that, when a crown came loose on the very morning I was getting ready to drive to Strasbourg for the Christmas Fair and lights. Didn't kill me, and the crown didn't fall out😁 And yes, I did Dremel out some of the original cement.πŸ˜‰
    The Strasbourg fair is said to be the world's original Christmas Fair. Well worth a visit.

    Some sources say that CA glue was invented for / used by the military in Korea and Vietnam for closing wounds quickly after field surgery.
    Don't remember seeing it on M.A.S.H. though.
    I expect Klinger had flogged itπŸ™„
