On a previous thread of mine don pedro said if I turned up with my dentures I'd be fine, I have partial dentures replacing about 9/10 of my teeth

Mine weren't rotten though mine just never grew in due to a condition called hypodontia

Can irregular bite be a problem?
My jaws are not perfectly aligned.
I don't have any troubles with eating and my bite force is normal. Only my smile doesn't have Hollywood look.

Also, if someone have implants is that counted as missing tooth?

As far I know, you are good to go. You don't seem to need any dental work. The Legion just do not have to start with guy who need dental work when there are so many guys that apply with good teeth.

I know this might be an older thread, but I had a question concerning having two missing teeth... I plan to have two bridges put in before I leave in August. Will the Legion frown upon having two bridges in place of two real bottom molars?

Thanks for all the great content y'all post on this forum by the way, I've learned so much! :D

If you mean implants with "bridges", then no problems. If you mean partial dentures, I don't know.

Yeah, the implants with bridges, like this: View attachment 5859. Like, I have a missing tooth between two teeth, then this one goes on. They sand the other two teeth down, then drop this bad boy in, cement it, and boom, two teeth. Besides all the wisdom teeth they removed prior to my first deployment in the Army, those are my missing teeth. The chewing teeth though. :( Oh I'm stubborn, I eat whatever I want anyways.

placebojones88 - wannabe

Kralte - guy who finished Castel

*Is from the same link posted by kkillert0fu here https://cervens.net/legionbbs123/showthread.php?21606-This-guy-finished-training-then-left-lots-of-questions-answered-posted-4-days-ago&p=213339#post213339
Like I have stated before, in the Legion there are no hard or fast rules.
They may change with the person who is on duty that day.
I assume that the cavities from this guy were small enough that they were willing to fix them.
Once you are a Legionnaire, they will take care of any necessary dentistry.

Lemurian, I really can not see this as a problem. A lot of poorer countries still use this old process. Once you are in then take advantage and get all the lead changed to whatever it is they use nowadays.

I take it that if its a gaping black cavity thats what they are looking for. Ive been doing some reading from the last pages of the forums and the stance has changed a little on the opinions. Thats why i bring it up. I dont have any missing teeth, massive holes or any holes that i could see in the mirror. I guess what is being implied are cavities that are so noticeable, it is obvious show stopper from this thread

What if you've lost more than the teeth allowed, but had them replaced with either implants or dentures? Is that a no-go?

I have one tooth that needs to be pulled out and 10 to be filled in. Do I still have a chance to join if I fix my teeth?
