    Go get your teeth fixed and ignore what that driver said.
    Truckers get their teeth fixed every day and some do it while on the road and some near the Mexican border get them fixed in Mexico because it's so much cheaper.
    That guy probably also believes they check the color of your sheets at the scales and if they're not white you get a ticket and put out of service.

    Where do you get an IV for your teeth? I got kinda bad teeth and have to get work done. And what caused the damage? do you brush your teeth?

    Yes it is true


    YOU CAN NOT DRIVE UNDER ANESTHESIA.

    DON'T EVEN TRY IT!

    Some people are predisposed genetically to have bad teeth.
    Smoking causes periodontal disease:
    "Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It's typically caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—to build up on the teeth and harden. In advanced stages, periodontal disease can lead to sore, bleeding gums; painful chewing problems; and even tooth loss."
    In my travels I've noticed the British have the worst teeth and Asians from countries such as Thailand, China, Philippines, have the best teeth.

    Which part is true?
    Can't drive under anesthesia is common sense.
    But, having to get a new DOT physical; never heard of that.
