Holy Ship! I CANNOT believe you posted this Pat! I have been in absolute shock for 2 weeks coz 2 weeks ago I got seafood poisoning, causing me to black out 6 times, fall down and knock MY NEW CROWN OUT. I just got my two front teeth crowned at Christmas after putting it off for almost 10 years. I was so happy with them. Then I found out I had broken the right front tooth root, and I am going in for the beginning of getting the implant tomorrow morning. (6 to 8 months of waiting yup)
I was actually laying in bed this morning at 11:30 unable to move I am so scared. I know it's stupid but god, it just sounds so INVASIVE. I also cracked my other new tooth and that will have to be replaced but the root was ok. No insurance coz I just go them done this past Dec. I am so glad you posted this because I've been so whacked out I couldn't even come here and talk about it. (I also broke my finger).
The dentist I saw, a very good one, said the other two bridges I have wouldn't even be done today because root implants are such an advanced technology... no need to destroy good teeth on either side for bridges any more. Not that that applies to you.
So it's a good thing I guess.
ha That is such a bummer that he chipped your other tooth, I can't believe that. Wow. I guess accidents happen to the best of us though
I've actually been praying to get through this like I might die or something. so again, thanks for posting here and it was really good to read the other opinions.
You are not the only baby.
