I appreciate my dentist's response to what he felt was an emergency, but I was not prepared to take in so much information and did not know the urgency of my broken tooth. He referred me to an oral surgeon and all is well. Through my explanation of not wanting to have a tooth pulled without a flipper (his word), he responded and had the flipper available within a day. That was nice. I did not have a discussion of other options besides an implant and talking to a couple of folks they asked me about a bridge, because it is cheaper. So, that is something to discuss with the patients, options.
