Sure is a big difference in having dentures made in Canada as opposed to Mexico. I had two sets of dentures made in the past 15 years with one set made in Palomas Mexico and the other one in Algodones Mexico. Today was my third appointment at the Albert St. Denture Clinic and the assistant denture lady really took her time with more measurements and fittings making adjustments to the upper and lower impressions. I don't remember all that exact nose to chin, side to side, and minute adjustment stuff, etc. at the Mexican dentist places. They might have but I don't remember anything like that. Maybe that is why my upper denture always had such a downhill angle on it that a skier could have identified with the degree of downward slope. Maybe too that is why I never smiled much. I should mention something here that may be of interest to many fellow Ontario Seniors. There is a dental plan available from the Ontario Seniors Dental Care Program that enables Seniors free or low-cost dental work. And it covers dentures. My overall denture cost is $2,700 but with this program, I only to pay $108.00. Kelly signed us up for this program about 3 years ago and this is the first time I have used it. Kelly has used it 3 times and next week sees a Dental Surgeon in London Ontario. I will be back to the Denturist next week for a final fitting before I get my choppers.Home again I quickly loaded up the Pheebs and we were off for a Jeep ride. Beautiful looking morning but winds were icy cold. Stocked up the bird feeders, burned some trash, and that was about it for me venturing outside. With warmer temps on the way, I am so much looking forward to more active times in the not too distant future.
It was just me in the Jeep this morning heading for a 9:30 Denturist appointment in Clinton Ontario. Clear blue skies overhead and an icy wind coming up from the south. No melting today.
