RE: I Think I Might Get Kicked Out of the Navy (Rant)
Call the dental school at the closest university, or nearby university. They usually do stuff for a way LOT less, or ask 1-800-Dentist about oral surgeons in your area that do stuff for free for military people, or at least on a sliding fee schedule.

Sounds like that tooth's horizontally or disotangularly impacted. Those are the least common, and hardest to remove. But if the tooth isn't moving or causing you trouble, most dentists wouldn't worry you about it. However, if that tooth ever does start to move, and if it's horizontally impacted, it could cause you some serious pain; it'd basically be growing into the roots of the tooth next to it.

Is there any way you can see about a different dentist?

Ah, you must be surface scum. Volunteer for sub duty. Ain't no fucking Dentist on a sub so volunteer for that and they'll dig those teeth out for free. At least that's what they did to Girly. 'Course SmoothhCriminal might not be happy that on a sub 150 men go under and 75 couples come up. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

You were on a sub Girly?
Little crowded on those things isn't? Also makes trips to the store a little difficult I hear.

Sounds like some fun right there. Tongue
After you get 'em out, go "oh me oh my, I just discovered I'm claustrophobic, my shrink says I can't do that, but thanks anyway"

It is horizontal, but the thing ain't going into the roots on the next tooth. The roots of my wisdom tooth is against my jaw, the the top part is near the tooth next to it, but not it's roots.

I knew you were a bubblehead without even being told. You fucking bubblehead's a fucking...well, like you. Thumbsup

I was a squid for a few years, but over the last few years I've been a sand sailor. Army deployment to the biggest shithole, then a year with Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, and the past couple years my parent command is another command that trains all those real highspeed, low drag folks. SEALs, SWCC, Riverines, Divers, and all that shit.

I'd rather be humping gear with the Seasbee's and that than be a bubblehead. No thanks, you can have that legacy, Girly. Oh, and as of last year (maybe the year before) they started letting the otherwised sexed on subs Shocking Imagine that shit!

Girly will kick the shit outta your scrawny ass. ... Just for kicks.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
