Hope it goes well!
Let us know how you get on.
As for me, the dentist has said I can hold on the denture until the crown drops out again. My choice, and if I want to go for it before then, I just have to call and make the appointment.
I have, however, had one hell of a month with my bottom teeth. Several of them are root-filled and when the x-rays showed a dark patch at the bottom of another, suggesting a slight infection, she decided an apisectomy would be the best preventative measure. That meant another root-filling, which she duly did. Somehow, though, the treatment disturbed whatever the infection was and it went from painful to agonising, and from one tooth to the entire bottom jaw. Two courses of antibiotics did the job but turned me into a virtual zombie at the same time. I actually had to miss a practice, it was so painful.
The dentist has now decided that the apisectomy is paramount. I have to call the hospital tomorrow for a consultant appointment. Meantime she's going to refer me to a private clinic (NHS funded) in the hope that we can get it done more quickly.
And when I get my hand around the throat of the little bee-atch who pushed me down that step all those years ago ... well, she won't need teeth!
Also keep up with regular hygienist cleanings and if necessary see a Periodontist(gum specialist) to prevent problems escalating.
Sorting out this can get expensive we could be talking Selling your Mark VI territory if you need implants.
I've been waiting for someone like you. .... that sounds a bit 'stalkerish' doesn't it......? But when you say "could be talking Selling your ...... if you need implants" - does that mean that it's problematic to play with implants? I ask, because I have a 'dental issue' and am probably looking at an implant. I'm only a beginner, in fact it was after my first lesson that my front cap fell out and was deemed irreplacable. I was devastated.
I had a 'consultation appointment' last week. They didn't suggest I take someone to drive me home, but I wished they had..... I got charged £100 to be told I could have an implant fitted that will cost me £2900!!
Good luck with yours.
He must be looking to replace his Ferrari at those prices. Or maybe it just needs a service.
