    How did you all get picture icons under your names when you post?

    Go to your profile and select a Avatar picture (you'll have a selection of 100 pictures or so to pick from) :cool:

    Wasabi,

    When you go into your profile and click on "SELECT A DIFFERENT AVATAR IMAGE" an Avatar window will pop open with images to select from. To select your own custom image, go to the bottom of the Avatar pop up window and use the "USE CUSTOM URL" address bar or "SET URL" to select your own image that's not on the list provided by SDN! Have fun!

    Okay, I'm having a heck of a time pasting this. I don't see anywhere in my avatar list or the blank frame that will let me import or paste something. Could it be my Mac??? <img border="0" alt="[Pissy]" title="" src="graemlins/pissy.gif" />

    deciduous,

    After you've gone to the screen where you can select your avatar image, you'll want to use the "custom URL" field at the bottom of that screen to type/paste in the URL of the image you want.

    1) go to "my profile"
    2) change or update your profile
    3) message icon...go to "change avatar image"
    4) then at the way bottom of the page...just to the bottom left of where you can click "next" is a place you can type in your url
    5) click "set url"

    you should be able to see your image displayed...hope this helps!

    Sonrisa Dentista and I obviously don't have the available URL field. I don't know why, but I've been back there a countless number of times looking for it. It's just not there <img border="0" alt="[Pity]" title="" src="graemlins/pity.gif" />

    I don't have the url link either- maybe you need to be a senior member or something- not a 'member' like me!

    There's definitely not an option for rookie members like myself. If I did have that URL link, I'd definitely go with Steiner's. I once asked my buddy who is #1 at SIU what he thought when he gets a patient with a brutal set of teeth. He thinks:

    "You poor bastard"

    ---This coming from a future Endo. hahaha. Still the same guy as he was in my fraternity years ago...

    Now, I could be wrong. But I don't think Steiner's pic. is amelogenesis imperfecta. I think you usually get a "peg-tooth" appearance with that disorder--the teeth look smaller and peg-shaped and have an amount of space between them. Remember, I could be wrong about that. It looks to me like a good ol' case of severe periodontitis and other related occurrences. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    very good deciduous : its severe perio, in fact its ANUG (acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis) its not Amelogensis Imperfecta, b/c there is enamel formation.
