I went to the Dentist today for a cleaning, and mentioned that I'd noticed part of a problem tooth appeared to be gone. Yep- another Crown at $957 is in the works! And they're talking about the need for 3 more Crowns! Yikes! I did some figuring awhile back, and by my count this next Crown is gonna put me up to the $8-9K area, out of pocket since diagnosoed, and that hurts.
IT TRULY DOES HAVE ME WONDERING IF I SHOULD GET MY TEETH PULLED, and need some help with suggestions. I already have 6 Crowns and a Bridge, and below the Crowns are stubs the Crowns fit over. Crown is supposed to happen on 11/7, so I got a little time.
Should I consult with an Oral Surgeon? .
Think another new issue came out with the cleaning, and sensitivity under a different Crown when it was being scraped. Being 3 1/2-years out, any known complications still in play with an Op getting them all yanked? NPC, loss of gum tissue is still evident.
Of note, this was the turf Delnative woulda been able to help with in a major way, God rest his Soul. Gone, but not forgotten...Any suggestions for me?
