One of my teeth cracked badly. No pain, but looks like the dentist is getting a visit when I get back.|
Yesterday, the Belwood's muffler cracked almost in two. No fumes, just very loud, looks like I'm getting a new muffler.
yeah, get it looked at. Cracked teeth can seem to be not so bad - until an infection sneaks in through the crack, and then the pain can be transcendantly awful.
I cracked a tooth a couple of weeks ago. The dentist tells me I need a crown (expensive gloom) and tomorrow I go in to have it ground down to a stump, preparatory to fitting the crown. I'm not looking forward to that...
With luck you'll just need a filling -- I've had that before. But don't leave it too long. If it does get infected, you won't like it!
I've had all variants (thanks to crumbly teeth) - the requirement for a full crown like yours, just a filling, and once the wonderful news that 'it's just a corner of the tooth, I'll just smooth the edges and it'll be fine'.
Dentists charge a fortune, and my one's pretty pricey, but I'm prepared to pay it cause he'll fit me straight away if I've broken a tooth. Last time it was sharp enough to cut my tongue and I couldn't speak properly!
Yes -- that's why I stick with mine. I've needed emergency appointments several times for broken teeth and lost fillings etc and he's always fitted me in on the same day. It's worth paying for.
What size engine do you have, BTW?
Let's see, since we have to replace the muffler we're going to have to cut back past the muffler and if the tubes are too thinly oxidised we may have to replace everything frmo the exhaust manifold back, and I have found upgrades are often cheaper then new. If we go with an upgrade to say a true dual 2 1/4th inch exhaust we could put an X pipe to give some more midrange power. Maybe throw on some hooker exhaust headers, too. (Then you can say you have hookers in your car) and in the end get better gas mileage.
Danny: "It's just a cracked muffler. I just want to replace the muffler."
Big Evil: "Awwww..."
Does this make you at all nervous about pulling out the engine at some point in the future? o_O
