That would be great if that was my problem. Problem is that I just got both of these crowns and they are doing it right after. It cost me thousands of dollars and this happened with another crown I had years ago. I am wondering if I just can't have crowns...? They always do this to me. Like I said, I have very long roots that dds's are shocked when they see how long they are on xray. I don't know if they can be cleaned out fully.
I want to save the teeth, but I will have to spend thousands more and I will probably just end up having to spend thousands getting an implant, if my other crowns are any prediction of the outcome.
Why I can't I be one of the people that crowns work for? This is so upsetting to me.
