Tan... before you do anything get a second opinion!

Once your real teeth are gone they can't be replaced and real is always better.

Not all dentists are honest...

I went to one 2 years ago that told me I had 7 cavities.
I didn't believe him so I went back to my old dentist and I had NONE!
I go every 6 months for a cleaning and check up so I knew there was no way that I could go from zero cavities to 7!

Just becareful!

smiles, T

Maybe I will just have to suck it up and really find another dentist. Or ask both these two dentists to talk to me at the same time. They work in the same office! Then I can atleast gage what could be right to wrong......

I had 4 teeth pulled last month along with gum surgery. At the same time as that work was done, the dentist did "bone grafts" because I have the same problem you do. Got 2 bridges last week. Implants are too expensive.

I truly hate going to the dentist more than almost anything else but I was so fortunate to find this guy. He's been wonderful & I totally trust him.

I grew up in a family where the dentist was way more important than the doctor. If your teeth and gums are healthy, chances are you will be healthy, too. Lack of care for your teeth and gums can lead to heart disease and death!

My dentist is of the belief that teeth get pulled as a last resort of last resorts. Better to keep them in your head if possible.

Just my 2 cents.
