Re: Has anyone ever had a dentist what to pull a tooth becuase of a minor cavity?
My old dentist preferred to pull instead of fix...he was working on me getting dentures....anyhow...almost all teeth can be fixed, and take it from me, do not let them pull until you get a second opinion!
Im 44 and I dont have that many teeth left because i let them pull them.
Ive also had a dentist tell me I needed a 4000 bridge.....my new dentist said no way my broken crown can be fixed.
Ive alsi had a dentis not correct two bottom teeth...he wouldnt even clean the tarter off of them because he said they would fall out....I had them cleaned and braced and I still have them...however Im now looing at gum surgery to correct the gums.
Ive also had an overbite that gets worse as I get older....my new dentist is sending me to a orthodontist...probably end up with jaw realignment.
My old dentst told me there was nothing that could be done about it.
Live every day as if its your last!
