Many of my back teeth are rotten and all I have in many areas is stumps. They don't cause me any pain and the rest are good. I don't want unnecessary and expensive work done, but I wonder if I could improve things without too much hassle or expense. Any ideas?
Hey, what has your dentist recommended? If the price is high, you could consider going to a dental hospital attached to a University. I know plenty of people who have had their teeth fixed by dental students.
I couldn't live with rotten teeth even if they weren't painful.
You need to visit a dental hospital and get them sorted. When you lose the lot, your face will collapse. This is not a cosmetic operation..... This is a necessity, if you don't want to end up with dentures and if one of your rotting teeth becomes infected and causes a bone infection, that's what you'll have to look forward to.
Thanks all. Not with a Nhs dentist at the moment. My dentist claims he can repair some of the teeth using some new-fangled technique which is expensive and not guaranteed to succeed, but I think I'd prefer to have the worst ones whipped out. Thanks for the,tip on the university dentist-think I'll try that route first.
