That Time When Patricia Waller Put Her Dentures In a Jar!

When I was a kid, my grandmother gave me a pair of her old dentures to play with and my mom was so mortified! Her reaction was so visceral, I didn’t even try to argue with her. As an adult (and mother) looking back, I can understand a little better now why this episode upset her so much.

There’s something artistic about this image, but it also highlights the way that an actual medical issue is often overlooked. Many who need dentures from a Dentist in Modesto, for example, may not fall into the elderly category. In fact, there’s been a rise recently in younger generations needing either partial or full dentures. I suppose that’s the power of something as strange as some knitted teeth – it gets you to think about the bigger smile at hand around the country.

“I don’t have false teeth. Do you think I’d buy teeth like these?”
– Carol Burnett
