I am having a hard time with my last few trips in to the dentist. A year and a half ago I had a tooth prepped for
a root canal, was sent out to a specialist, came back in to get the crown put on (had problems with that), and 3 months later,I lost the tooth altogether !!!! So, I thought they had me prepped for an implant, but it appears they
put in a post and crown, which lasted less than a year and a half; the crown and post were pulled out, and we are
going on 3 weeks and the socket is still swollen, and the decision has been made to make this missing tooth
part of a partial with 2 or 3 other upper teeth/ Lastly, when the crown was removed, they fitted me for a retainer with
a tooth in it to fill the missing tooth gap (350 dollars to me, which was NOT discussed ahead of time!, and I have not been able to wear the damn thing since the day after the crown was removed....so yah, I am having a hard
time being positive about a single tooth that has cost me a lot of money over and above my insurance costs, and using up all my insurance costs as well..
do not get me wrong..the tech Meegan is awesome, and I acutually like Dr. Yuri, but this whole process has been disconcerting.
