Excessive eating of hollandaise sauce
can be DETRIMENTAL
to your dentures
. Just listen
to this anecdote
My grandmother is one of those mature women who
just can't change their ways. She always cooks
delicious, but terribly fatty, foods, and she
especially loves to include hollandaise
sauce in any meal.
Well, five years ago, my grandfather lost a few teeth
up front. He got dentures, but after a month of
grandma's cooking, the plates were completely
corroded. Thinking this was due to his purchasing
cheap dentures, he was embarassed, and went to another
dentist to buy the most expensive dentures there
It didn't work.
Finally he went to his initial dentist and told him about
how he wasted so much money on two sets of plates.
The dentist spent quite some time asking questions and
ruling out possible causes. Only after 30 minutes did
he think to ask,

"Well yes," answered grandpa. "My wife loves the stuff
and uses it in nearly half of her dishes."
"Hmmm, well, I think the only answer is to get you
some chrome dentures"
"But won't they be a little unsightly?" objected grandpa.
The dentist answered, "Possibly. But really,
There's no plates like chrome for the hollandaise
Oh come on,
with all of that build-up, you had to
know a really bad pun was on its way.
