Mom’s Teeth are Falling Out

Can you advise me on what to do for my 86 year old mother? Two weeks ago, she lost a tooth. We had it replaced with a removable partial denture because she just does not have much money and my husband and I are in a tight spot financially ourselves. I can barely afford the… Continue reading Mom’s Teeth are Falling Out

Can I Save This Tooth

I’ve been to two different dentists and both of them want to pull my tooth. I have a front tooth that had been chipped. I’d repaired it with dental bonding.

Dealing with a Broken Tooth

My husband recently fell and broke both of his front teeth. Do you know what we need to do to get this fixed? Will he need to extract them, or maybe get dental crowns?

At this recent appointment, he told me that I have gum disease and said he’d like me to make it a priority to come every six months otherwise I could lose my teeth. I don’t have any dental insurance.

She’s Too Young to Lose Her Teeth
