Post What gives?

I am 62 years old. Very conscientious about diet and hygiene. I eat well, and I brush and floss daily. From age 20 to age 59 I had almost no dental problems whatsoever.

Three years ago, at 59, much to my surprise I had two molars break. I had both crowned, and with insurance my cost was about $900 for both.

Within the last 8 weeks I had two more broken molars. I went to the dentist this week and was informed that both were decayed, and both may need root canals, rebuilding and crowns, and he placed a temp filling on the worst of the two broken teeth (mucho $). Also after seeing the dentist, I had my teeth cleaned and the hygienist found another spot on another molar which the dentist will look at my next visit.

I find this situation unacceptable from both a cost and health standpoint, and I am looking for an understanding and solution to my situation. If anyone has any suggestions or comments, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Get a second opinion. If there is a charge for it it would be minimal compared to what you have spent and might spend.
