During World War II, while many American women took to the factories working as riveters, young Russian women riveted the skies with bombs and bullets, striking fear and panic into the hearts of the German Army and Air Corps.

The last of these brave women, Nadezhda “Nadya” Popova, perished to the ravages of time on July 8, 2013. She was 91 years young. Born in 1921, she came into life in a small, coalmining town in the Eastern region of the Ukraine. She had dreams of becoming a nurse or a teacher, until that fateful day when a pilot was The Paper - 760.747.7119


blown off course and landed in close proximity to her school, in an empty field. Unable to fathom what it must be like to float among the clouds, Popova rushed with her fellow classmates to see the pilot. Manned flight was still relatively new and a novelty for the children of her small town to see. Standing near his plane, the pilot, a god fallen to earth, was more like something from a dream or a fairy tale than from reality. He was rushed as though he was a rock star by the school children, as each vied for space, hoping to get close enough to touch his hands or jacket. In an instant, Popova was transformed. That pivotal

moment changed her dreams and the future course of her life forever. She now wished to fly and soar like a bird and would never be content to be a mere passenger. She had to be in control. She had to be the pilot.

Always a free spirit, she would achieve that dream, but not in the way she hoped or expected. At the age of 15, she joined a flying club without telling her parents and became a crack pilot. She is quoted as saying, “Each time I walked towards a plane, my stomach would knot up, until I became airborne and I was thrilled all over again.” In




Raskova, a famous Soviet navigator and one of the first of three Soviet women to be awarded the “Hero of the Soviet Union” medal in 1938, was busy using her sphere of influence to persuade Stalin of the need for more pilots and ground support. Stalin agreed and Raskova organized the three women flying regiments. At the tender age of 19, the moment the German invasion into Russia was announced, Popova abandoned the life she knew. Without hesitation she ran to the air-field and enlisted. She was one of the first to enlist in her regiment, demanding to become a fighter pilot. She did indeed become a pilot in the first of three Soviet Union all-female fighter pilot

bomber squadrons. Thousands of other unsung women volunteers served not only as pilots, but as mechanics, staff personnel, navigators, bomb loaders and gunners.

Above, Nadezhda “Nadya” Popova, in camp, brushing up her hair; Nadya passed away in 2013, age 91.

Popova despised the Nazis and with good reason. Her brother Leonid, was killed by the Germans during the first month of the war. Her family home was seized by the Gestapo, who smashed out the windows and cut down all her beloved cherry trees. In August of 1942 she bore wit-

Morris Schwartz is dying and is on his deathbed. He is with his nurse, his wife, his daughter and his two sons. He knows the end is near so he says to them, ”Bernie, I want you to take the Beverly Hills houses." "Sybil, take the apartments over in Los Angeles Plaza."

"Hymie, I want you to take the offices over in City Center." "Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings downtown."

The nurse is just blown away by all this. As Morris slips away, she says to the wife, "Mrs. Schwartz, your husband must have been a hardworking

The sword of the German air force cut a wide swath as its blade mowed down the innocent, without prejudice. Young, old, it didn’t matter, the razor’s edge was sharp and cruel.

While their male counter-parts flew newer more advanced planes, the pilots of the three women bombardier squadrons flew in bi-planes from WWI and retro-fitted crop dusters. The plywood and canvas planes created a distinctive “whooshing” sound. When referring to these women pilots, who ran most of their bombing raids against the Germans at night, the Nazis coined the phrase, “Nachthexen or Night Witches,” because of that sound. For the women of the 588th, 586th and 587th Night Bomber Regiments, it was an honor to be referred to as “Nachthexen, a Night Witch.”

Ole, the smoothest-talking Swede in the Minnesota National Guard, got called up to active duty.

Ole's first assignment was in a military induction center. Because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about government benefits, especially the GI life insurance, to which they were entitled. The officer in charge soon noticed that Ole was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form of GI insurance. This was remarkable, because it cost these low-income recruits $30 per month for the higher coverage, compared to what the government was already providing at no charge. The officer decided he'd sit in the back of the room at the next briefing and observe Ole's sales pitch. Ole stood up before the latest group of inductees and said, "If yoo haf da normal GI insurans an' yoo go to Afghanistan an'

forms and boots too large, the young women, looking more like boys, would fly 18 to 20 endless missions in a single night, creating a constant barrage of bombing, which kept the German infantry and grounded pilots from rest.

The Night Witches, would fly a total of twenty-five missions before they were rotated out of the bombing/flight schedule, in order to obtain sufficient rest. Popova stated, "Our planes were the slowest in the air force. They often came back riddled with bullets, but they kept flying."

Despite being a crack bomber pilot, Popova preferred to hold onto her femininity; she wore a beetle brooch pinned to her uniform for luck and cinched up the waist of her too-large jacket, fluffing up her hair between missions, as seen in the picture below. She also kept a nearby white silk blouse and blue silk scarf on her bunk, just in case.

In four years, the three ‘Night Witch’ bomber squads ran over 30,000 missions and dumped nearly 23,000 tons of bombs on

I put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn't even look at a cow. I was beginning to think I had paid more for that bull than he was worth. Anyhow, I had the Vet come and have a look at him. He said the bull was very healthy, but possibly just a little young, so he gave me some pills to feed him once per day.

The bull started to service the cows within two days, all my cows! He even broke through the fence and bred with all of my neighbor's cows! He's like a machine! I don't know what was in the pills the Vet gave him ... but they kind of taste like peppermint. ••••• The train was quite crowded and a U.S. Marine walked the entire length looking for a seat, but the only seat left was taken by a well-dressed, middle-aged, French woman's poodle.

the invading German army. Popova was solely responsible for over 852 missions, most of which were performed at night under the cover of darkness. The female pilots were deployed to attack enemy camps and strongholds, bomb fuel and ammo dumps, bridges and concentrations of enemy soldiers, tanks and aircraft.

The women were relentless, like flies buzzing in the German soldiers’ ears, as each night plane after plane dropped its payload preventing both rest and retaliation. Like their male counterparts they participated in dogfights and cleared the way for the advancing Russian infantry, while attempting to dodge the barrage of bullets raining down on them from the anti-aircraft artillery. To quote a navigator regarding her fellow women of the 588th, Lieutenant Polina Gelman states, “Every day the girls became more courageous. To fly a combat mission is not a trip to the moon…Every attack,

The war-weary Marine asked, 'Ma'am, may I have that seat?' The French woman just sniffed and said to no one in particular. 'Americans are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat.'

The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat left was under that dog. 'Please Ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired.'

She snorted, 'Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!' This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window, and sat down.

The woman shrieked, 'Someone must defend my honor. This American should be put in his place!'

An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, 'Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your cars on the wrong side of the road. And now, Sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out of the window.'

every bombing is a dance with death. In spite of this, every girl knew the danger and none ever refused to fly her mission or used a pretext to avoid participating in a bombing. Our feelings were that we were doing a simple job, just a job to save our country, to liberate it from the enemy.” Some of the women flew obsolete Polikarpov PO-2 biplanes from 1928, which were typically used in training, and could only carry two bombs at a time with a combined weight of less than a ton. This resulted in a cyclical pattern of dropping their payload and returning to be reloaded several times throughout the nightly bombing raids. There were times each pilot would fly ten to twenty bombing expeditions in a single night, flying from dusk to dawn without stopping to rest.

As their planes approached the designated target, the pilots would switch off the engines, coast over the target, let go their consignment of bombs before switching the engines on again. As a member of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, Popova would turn her aircraft over, diving full throttle, in a well choreographed dance of death through the searchlights of the German encampments, playing the part of decoy, while a second plane glided in silently behind her to safely drop its load of bombs. The role of decoy would then be changed, enabling her to drop her bombs on the sleep weary Germans soldiers.

The 588th bomber squadron was the most highly decorated of the three regiments and the name was later changed to the “46th Guards Bomber Regiment.” This squadron produced twenty-three female, Soviet heroes. It is estimated this squad flew 24,000 combat missions from May of 1942 to May of 1945. The pilots and ground crews of the 588th were relentless, working non-stop on the verge of sheer physical collapse, as they flew and worked through every kind of weather and condition. By the end of the war, most of the surviving women bomber pilots had flown almost 1,000

sorties/raids and some of them from the 583th IAP, flew an astounding 4,419 raids and participated in over 125 air battles per pilot.

Letters to the Editor

City of Escondido Expose’

CONGRATULATIONS! Maria Dolin and her PE2 dive bomber.

In order to have more maneuverability and to save weight, there was no radio and Popova never wore a parachute. In late 1942, she was given the task of dropping food and medical supplies to a group of Russian marines trapped on a beach called Malaya Zemlya. To the trapped marines, her plane sounded like the wings of an angel. Dodging shell fire from the Germans, she had to fly low and could hear the grateful cheers of the marines over the gunfire. Later, when she arrived back to base, she found 42 bullet holes in her plane. In 1944, Popova flew 18 sorties/raids in one night over the skies of Poland. The old planes made of canvas and wood, had open cockpits, and the women had to endure flying in the rain, snow and oppressive heat. The aircraft was so light and frail, heavy winds could flip the plane or cause maneuverability issues.

As many of her fellow pilots and friends were hit by enemy, fire Nadezhda fell witness, watching as the shrapnel shredded the wings of the planes. The worst part of the war was to lose her friends. In one raid, she was the lead pilot. The massive Messerschmitts attacked with a barrage of gunfire through the searchlights. To her left and right, she watched in horror as each tiny PO-2 was shot down, bursting into flames. She stated she never cried as much as when she returned to the base and saw the empty bunks with half written letters.

as well. These women were coping with the physical demands and strain of combat, combined with the lack of sleep, food and warmth. Several were arrested and sent to the guardhouse for chopping up unused items to burn for warmth, or exchanging items with peasants for food.

The publisher of The Paper has done a wonderful job of bringing the devious behavior of our Mayor, City Manager, and several council members to the attention of their readership in their October 3rd issue. Every registered voter in Escondido should have a copy of this revealing article, titled, “ESCONDIDO… AND ITS TROUBLES.” On July 1st, I attended a meeting in Mayor Abed’s office to express my concern about the way Chief Maher was given a “forced retirement.”

The mayor offered several versions of the Chief’s termination. He told us about a survey conducted by the police officers’ association that resulted in Chief Maher receiving a vote of “No Confidence.” (Editor: President Michael Garcia of the EPOA claims that not only did such a vote/survey never happen, it was never even discussed within the organization.) During this meeting I questioned Mayor Abed’s honesty.

Natalya Mecklin, Order of “Hero of the Soviet”

During the bombing of Berlin, at the height of the war, the allied casualties were so extreme they ceased their bombing raids, that is, except for one squadron of female Russian Bombers. Despite the danger, they continued their assault on Berlin until every single woman perished. Thousands of female pilots received well deserved orders and medals for service, bravery and heroism, and twenty-nine women were awarded the title

Prior to this meeting, I wrote a letter that was published in the Union Tribune declaring that I could not support him as a political candidate. I also provided him with two personal letters outlining similar information. During the faceto-face meeting I repeated my feelings about his re-election efforts.

Several weeks later I learned that my wife and I were on Mayor Abed’s list of political supporters. We were never asked if we could be included on this list. Several others were also on the list without their permission and against their preferences. This incident, coupled with the honesty issues outlined above demonstrates a level of deviousness that should never be practiced by a political leader. /s/Orv Hale Escondido, CA.

EPD to Combat Roadway deaths and injuries with DUI Checkpoints

Thanks to a grant of $106,000 awarded by the California Office of Traffic Safety, the Escondido Police Department will activate another year-long program aimed at improving traffic safety and the quality of life. While traffic deaths from all causes declined by nearly 39 percent between 2006 and 2010 in California, but rose by 2.6 percent in 2011. State and federal officials anticipate that figures will show another rise for 2012. DUI deaths remain the largest sector, at nearly 30 percent of traffic fatalities. Recent trends show increases in two new categories – distracted driving and drugimpaired driving.

Activities that the grant will fund include: • Specialized DUI and drugged driving training such as Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE), and Drug Recognition Evaluator (DRE). • DUI Saturation Patrols • Motorcycle safety enforcement • Distracted driving enforcement • Speed, red light and stop sign enforcement

• Compilation of DUI “Hot Sheets,” identifying worst-ofthe-worst DUI offenders

In addition, the department received another new traffic safety grant, this one for $184,000 for an anti-DUI program aimed at preventing deaths and injuries on Escondido roadways. This second grant is designed to support the special DUI Checkpoint policy which assists in efforts to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol and other drug related collisions in the community. These actions will specifically target impaired driving offenders as well as educating the public on the dangers of impaired driving. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Drunk and drugged driving is among America’s deadliest crimes. Collisions involving alcohol have been shown to be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted often enough. Checkpoints have proven to be the most effective of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent and are supported by nearly 90 percent of California drivers, according to

The Department of Motor Vehicles hopes to set up a new office near Hiway 78 on Rancho Santa Fe Road. It awaits the outcome of this week’s San Marcos Planning Commission meeting, then a referral to the San Marcos City Council. if approved, the new office would replace the DMV office that closed in Escondido in May because of lease and parking problems.

DMV officials say the Rancho Santa Fe Road office, which is expected to open early next year, will be a temporary solution and that they plan to open a much larger office elsewhere in San Marcos in fall 2015. Traffic and parking are of concern when a DMV office moves in. Also of concern is the probable need, and attendant expense of setting up new turn lanes and a median strip, for an office that will only be at this location for a short time.

Carlsbad, already the home of a number of excellent dining venues, may be welcoming another ambitious project to the inventory. A two-story microbrewery and restaurant combination is in the planning stages for downtown Carlsbad. The facility would offer patio seating and ocean views.

City officials seem to like the idea, thinking it will contribute to the Carlsbad village area as a tourist destination and nightlife hub. The developer, Barry Blue, operates a local hotel and several vacation rentals with his family, has decided to enter the restaurant and brewery business.

To be called the Bluewater Restaurant it is planned for a location on the west side of Carlsbad Boulevard between Oak and Pine avenues, just north of a Best Western and just south of the Surf Motel. It will seat 132 people and have two outdoor patios with ocean views. The land is already owned by

Only 28, Blue has big plans for the restaurant but says it won’t open till 2015. The restaurant, which Blue calls a gastro pub, won’t open until early 2015 because of the extensive construction required. Blue said the project will cost about $2.5 million, not including the land.

The City Council has already approved the project but required the restaurant to close the patios at midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and at 11pm on weekdays, all out of concern over neighboring residents and protecting them from distracting noise. Thus far, all city officials appear to be on board and only time awaits the buildling and opening ceremonies for what promises to be another promising restaurant venue.

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several US territories, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.

An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week." The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket. The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want." Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog - now that's cool." Two engineers?

"We're supposed to find the height of this flagpole," said one, "but we don't have a ladder." The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple of bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground. Then she took a tape measure from her pocketbook, took a measurement, announced, "Twenty one feet, six inches," and walked away. One engineer shook his head and laughed, "A lot of good that does us. We ask for the height and she gives us the length!" Both engineers have since quit their engineering jobs and are currently serving in the United States Congress.

The Biggest Impact on Our Society By Tom Morrow

One of the biggest, if not 'the' biggest, technological development with the most economical and sociological impact of the last 100 years is television. No single device or system has been more important to the progress of commerce and society than the communications ability of television.

Surprisingly enough, the first television system was developed and patented by a German university student in 1884. It was a primitive "electromechanical" TV system that employed a scanning disk, a spinning disk, with a series

“Excavating Escondido” Explores City’s Past and Present – This interactive play addresses issues of identity, perspective and civic responsibility as it explores the city’s past and present, as seen through the eyes of local teens. Working in partnership with the La Jolla Playhouse and its theater artists, students and teachers from Escondido, Orange Glen and San Pasqual high schools have joined forces to create an original play that addresses these issues. On October 12 and 13, the community is invited to take part in the theatrical event. In the production, audience members become adventurers who are led on a quest exploring Escondido’s past and present. The audience and cast will travel around the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE), the neighboring Escondido History Center (EHS) and Grape Day Park. More than 40 teens from the three high schools will participate, and the two-day event will serve as their fall theater shows. Four free performances will be offered: Saturday, October 12, at 2:30pm and 5pm; and Sunday, October 13, at 2:30pm and 5pm. This is an outdoor performance

During the next 30 years, a number of systems were developed by inventors in Japan, Russia, and England, but it was an American, Philo Farnsworth, who developed the first commercially-feasible TV transmitter and receiver in 1927. It would be another 10 years before TV sets would be manufactured in the United States. In the meantime, Germany had developed the first working system in 1931. Portions of the 1936 Berlin Olympics were televised by the Germans to a very small audience only a few blocks from the stadium. Arguably, the BBC claims in 1936, it had the first commercially operated TV station available to the public as we know it today. However, there were very few sets to watch what little programming was available. At the 1939 New York World's Fair, the American TV system was demonstrated by RCA, but the approach of World War II

Now here comes the part in which I am more than likely to ruffle some feathers. I firmly believe that this embargo on Cuba has been one of this nation's worst errors as far as foreign policy is concerned. And this error is not just limited to foreign policy.

This week is National Fire Prevention Week and attention is focused on promoting fire safety and prevention; however we should practice fire safety all year long. Many potential fire hazards go undetected because people simply do not take steps to fireproof their home.

Key points to remember: Stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling, or broiling food. When simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay at home, and use a timer to

Since big box retailers don’t offer a new PC alternative to Win8, many small business and home users have been forced to accept new PCs with a Win8 operating system that they hate. There are Internet downloadable third party applications that restore the standard desk-top interface to Win8 PCs. “Start 8” and “Classic Shell” are the two most prominent. Many users have implemented these “fixes.” We routinely install “Magic Shell” on any

Microsoft’s gamble to use its overwhelming dominance in PC operating systems to force the Windows 8’s “Metro” touch screen interface on new PC buyers was intended to boost the sale of Microsoft’s fledging products in the growing touch screen arena (smart phone/tablet). Not only has the Win8 gambit hurt PC sales but it also doesn’t seem to have done much for Microsoft’s tablet/smart phone sales which

Governments schools and large corporate accounts have been able to avoid Win8 by ordering Win7 computers through the Corporate Services Groups of major PC suppliers. As an individual or small business you can’t use these services but you can still buy new Win7 desktop and notebook PCs from independent PC builders like “The Computer Factory.” We can build Win7 desktops in any configuration from basic to gamers and design workstations. We also can provide a full range of notebook PCs with Win7.


Fire Season is Upon Us; Be Prepared

We are now deep into the fire season. Santa Ana winds are blowing and we all watch the eastern horizon nervously, especially those of us who can remember the Cedar and Paradise wildfires from a few years back. Those fires cost dozens of lives, destroyed thousands of homes and caused billions of dollars in damage. Needless to say, we don’t want to repeat those tragedies. Sadly, more wildfires will occur. After a long dry season, our hillsides are tinder dry. Fortunately, there are steps homeowners can take to reduce the danger to themselves, their property and their families, including removal of combustible vegetation from within 100 feet of structures. Please visit the following websites for additional information: The Federal Emergency Management Authority’s section devoted to fire prevention Cal Fire’s website has information on fire safety, the state’s fire plan, fire season emergency declarations and much more San Diego County information on wildfires. Escondido’s Community Emergency Response Team Website (CERT) has training and resources available to prepare citizens to deal with emergencies and to provide assistance when they occur Valley Center CERT homepage San Diego County CERT homepage .do?id=46690&cert=

Temecula CERT homepage

While it would be nice to think we will never have another wildfire in this region, we know that wishful thinking will not protect us when a fire emergency occurs. Preparation and planning are the best defense against wildfires.

delayed the mass production of television sets and the development of TV stations. The nation's first TV station is claimed by WRGB in Schenectady, New York, which began on Jan. 13, 1928, but there were only a handful of receivers available to verify its signal. In 1951, I saw my first TV, a giant RCA mahogany box with a 7-inch screen. Perry Como was on for 15 minutes; the news followed. This was via an Omaha station. That first newscast was the station's camera rolled up to the AP teletype machine, allowing the viewer to read the news as it came rolling over the machine.

America's big cities had commercially popular TV soon after the war ended, getting on the air in a big way by 1949. The hinterlands, where I grew up, didn't get TV until the early 1950s. Our family got a TV in 1953. The nearest station was 130 miles away. Depending upon the weather, (Dad thought the clouds had a lot to do with reception), we

had at least 15 TV stations that we could, (and I emphasize 'could,') get a viewable picture. It wouldn't be until 1956 before we could get reliable TV. The technological advancements we’ve all seen in TV over the past half century is nothing less than phenomenal. What would Philo think of today's high definition flat screens? Whether it was watching astronauts on the moon, the rovers on Mars, or news events as they happen anywhere on earth, television has been an important constant in most of our lives since World War II. Like it or not, the advancements of television have had tremendous impact on the history of mankind.

Historic Memory -- In September 1950, the U.S. Marines and Army landed on the shores of Inchon, South Korea, re-taking Seoul and pushing the invading North Koreans back north. The Inchon landing was Gen. Douglas MacArthur's last big victory before being forced to retire several months later.

The Doctor is In! “adapt” to it, and often these dentures can be unstable. Is there some better alternative that can give us a stable replacement of our missing teeth but not cost an arm and a leg? Price is the million dollar question for those who are retired and on a fixed income. Fortunately, now there is an alternative that provides us with stable dentition without the tremendous cost of having fixed bridges done, or an array of implants. Implant Retained Overdentures

Implant Retained Overdentures for the CostConscious Patient As the Baby Boomer generation gets older our health-care costs increase, including dental care. With the advent of reliable implants we can “rebuild” our mouths, however, at times with considerable expense.

On the other hand, replacement of missing teeth with a denture (of which there are 55 million wearers in the U.S. alone) sometimes results in a less than comfortable appliance requiring us to

These will cost more than a conventional denture, but run much less than fixed bridges that require many implants. Normally only 4 (sometimes 5 to 6) implants are used to support an overdenture which lowers your cost dramatically. The denture is specially designed to lock onto the implants so that they won’t come lose when you’re eating, laughing, etc. (Use your imagination!) Yet, they can be removed for cleaning and are very hygienic. Actually, they’re easier to keep clean than fixed bridges supported by implants. Less Bone Requirements Drive Down Costs

When doing implant supported crowns and bridges, we need solid

bone structure throughout the arch, and frequently have to charge our patients for bone “augmentation” (addition of bone) to areas with insufficient bone to support the implant structure. I mplant Retained Overdentures require using less implants for support and we can “adjust” the placement of our implants into areas where the bone is most dense, often reducing or eliminating bone augmentation. Since the cost of augmentation can run anywhere from $450$800 or more per unit, that’s a big advantage both by avoiding surgery … and cutting costs! Care and Handling

Overdentures are “removable.” Most of our patients don’t like the idea of “removable” teeth. However, if you’re already in that boat, or headed that way, remember it’s easier and more thorough to remove and brush your teeth

and gums than it is to clean a fixed bridge in your mouth. As for placing them back into your mouth, overdentures literally “snap” back into place with stability and security. Price

In the final analysis, if you’re faced with some major rehabilitation of your dentition or in need of a stable denture, Implant Retained Overdentures is an attractive option! Cost is almost always a serious consideration whenever it comes to choosing your dental treatment options! An Important Money-Saving Reminder!

As the end of the year nears it’s important to use whatever dental benefits your insurance plan offers before they expire! We can help you plan your end of year dental treatment and help you apply it to your dental insurance benefits.
