So dentists will actually just give you the teeth if you ask? Isn't there a certain way that they need to be disposed because of health reasons? I just want to make sure before I start going to dentist offices,I don't want to get any strange looks. lol
Teeth are supposed to be thrown in the biohazard bin however we have been saving them for years. It's a customary thing to save teeth for dental students as they need them for certain studies.
Usually we save the teeth in a mixture of water with a touch of bleach and glycerin. Haven't had too many problems with that.
If you were to go into a dental office I would just ask them to save teeth for a "project". If they ask questions, I would be honest with them and say that you are learning how to recycle the crowns. My guess is that most dentists (if they are not sending the crowns in themselves) would be happy to give you what they had.
Take this job and shove it. I don't want to work here no more...
