Hi All ,

 

I've been with my dentist years and yet my teeth are in a complete mess , just as work was starting being done on my teeth my dentist left the dental surgery and now I've got a dentist who just sees me asks what is the problem and just fills any tooth ,

 

My back tooth needed extracting really badly and she said she had referred me to some place to have it taken out , as it was to complex for her to do , she said 3 months wait ,

 

It's been 10 months and my tooth is just horrendous ,well my whole set of teeth are ,

No matter what I do I've cut sugary drinks out etc but my teeth continue to deteriorate ,

 

I have to wait weeks for an appointment my front tooth where she filled it out where it snapped off , it fell off again and I've had to have ny front tooth in half for the last 6 weeks until I had an appointment

 

That appointment is on Friday this week , I wish I could tell her straight and ask her to please repair my teeth ,

Im nearly 40 and I've always wanted a nice smile I think it would help with the fact I don't go out

 

Any advice much appreciated

She will probably refer you to their Dental hygienist who charged me £40 for half hr appointment for info I could get off the internet.!!!

Most dental practices have more than one dentist, if yours does, you could ask to see a different dentist than the one you are currently seeing.

As an alternative you may also register at a different practice.

I'd go along with martin's suggestion asking to see another dentist at the same practice, or find out when she's on holiday and get an appointment then.

Hi WishPositivity

It sounds like you have weak teeth.Some are lucky and they last a lifetime.Some are not and they fall to pieces despite trying hard to look after them.

Also this can lead to many problems and pain at times.

 

I see you are nearly 40 now and you say they are deteriorating.

It sounds like you are going to need quite a lot of work done to them on and off for years to come.

I sometimes wonder is it worth it.

 

Have you thought about saying to the Dentist, any dentist i have had enough of this,whip them all out and have a nice new shiny set of Knashers instead of all this work.And expense.

And perhaps would increase your confidence.

Has the dentist told you why they have deteriorated.

I hope things work out for you,best wishes for the future.

Tawnyowl.

Hi all

 

Thank you all for your advice , my teeth started deteriorating when I was drinking litres of Pepsi every day , that's why I stopped ,

 

My last dentist (the one that started work she gave me a porcelain tooth) she said make sure you come to all appointments so I can rectify them ,

 

But with my dentist at the moment not doing anything they will continue to weaken ,

 

 

I've said in the past that I'd just rather have the rest taken out and have false teeth but the dentist just laughs it off ,

 

I'm going to change my dentist to the place I live now

Thank you All so much

I'm not sure I'd ever opt to have all my teeth removed, however much pain I was in, without thoroughly researching what impact that would have for bone loss in the jaw and other consequences. It's not only cutting out fizzy pop that is important, but your entire diet and, of course, oral hygiene - long-term. I hope it all goes well.
