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 upper denture and I absolutely hate it. The denture plate is constantly making me gag so I only wear it when I have to be in public. Is there such a thing as a soft denture? Callie Anne Dear Callie Anne, Just to qualify, when I am talking about a soft denture,… Continue reading Is there a Soft Denture?
I need some advice. My daughter had a congenitally missing tooth. We’ve gotten her braces to move her teeth into the right position. Our plan is to get her a dental implant when she is old enough but we need a temporary tooth replacement in order to hold the spot open until that time. Our… Continue reading Temporary Restoration Before Dental Implants
I am frustrated with my dentist and need some advice. My parents were never able to afford a dentist as I was growing up. I am 29 and just now able to afford a dentist myself.

I ran out of that and I think I’ve developed another tooth infection. Is there… Continue reading Antibiotics for Tooth Infection
I’m writing in a last-ditch attempt to figure out if I am on the right track for this. I had all of my top teeth pulled. Apparently, one of the teeth perforated the sinus cavity, but no one told me this after it happened. By day 3 after the procedure, I had a fever and… Continue reading Sinus Perforation after Tooth Extraction
I am sick of dealing with my teeth. I’m just 28 years old and they cost me a fortune. Every time I go to the dentist, I either need a filling or dental crown, even though I brush and go to the dentist twice a year. I’m to the point that I just want to… Continue reading Dentist or Oral Surgeon to Extract all My Teeth?
I called my dentist because I told him that I have what I think is a tooth infection. He called me in an antibiotic and told me to take that and then come in a week from now. I don’t understand why he won’t see me. I’m pretty sure that you can’t solve a tooth… Continue reading Dentist Won’t See Me
I have a hard time going to the dentist. I’ve pretty much been going only when I have to. The last two times, things were so bad I lost teeth. If I keep going this way, I’ll need dentures before I’m 40. What do you recommend? Lisa Dear Lisa,
