    I think these broken teeth are helping me lose a little weight again. There's no junk food snacking at all right now, eating only at mealtime or something soft between meals. A little sugar but less than usual. Eating is a total risk assessment, as I try to baby my teeth along till I can get in to a dentist who won't try to cheat me and is accepted by my insurance coverage. So it's smaller meals, smaller bites, more liquids and ultimately I think it's a good thing.

    By the way, powdered clove mixed in water and shaken vigorously makes a great mouthwash. Makes my mouth taste clean and it is an anesthetic that helps to soothe my gums. Just an 89 cent bag of cloves, mixed into a quart gatorade bottle of water, and kept under the counter, works fine. I added some cinnamon leaf oil to mine and have ideas for a better recipe, but this seems to work fine.
