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. Then, I had a fall and it broke almost in half. The dentists want to pull it and give me a partial denture. I am… Continue reading Can I Save This Tooth
I have an infected first molar. There is not a molar behind it. My choices are a root canal treatment (which is rather expensive) or extract the tooth and get a dental implant (which is more expensive). Of course my dentist gives me all the expensive options.

About nine years ago I had a partial denture made through my dentist. The lab that made it did a fantastic job. So, when it was time to get my new one made, I decided to go directly to them. The weird thing is, it hasn’t turned out nearly as well. I’ve had countless problems… Continue reading Went Directly to the Dental Lab for My Partial Denture

I’m losing a couple of teeth due to an accident and am hoping to get dental implants. The big problem with that is I have diabetes. Will that knock me out of contention for dental implants? If so, what are my options? Timothy Dear Timothy,

I wanted quality implants that were full-sized, a dentist with experience, and someone who’d let me start with four implants and pay them out. It took a while. I finally found the one I wanted.

I need some advice. I just took over my mother’s care. I’m distraught over the care she’s received, especially her teeth. They’re a complete mess. It’s like the nursing center never gave her dental care. She’s on disability but there’s a waiting period foRead More
Can you help me, maybe give me some options? I’m so upset I’m shaking. I haven’t been to a dentist before. My parents never had the money to take me. They tried. It just seemed like everytime they’d saved up enough something would happen, like a car breaking down, etc. I Read More
