Developments that do absolutely nothing to inspire confidence: first I get blamed by the dentist for "waiting to long" to pull an infected tooth(a molar)that had been saved for more than two decades by more competent dentists, infected because another quack dentist broke off a piece of a file doing a shoddy root canal on the tooth, rupturing and infecting the canal(naturally that's all my fault). Extracting the tooth would rid me of the infection(it didn't); now the gum is infected and the dentist is anxious to extract the next tooth in succession to rid me of the infection. How many pulled teeth will it take before this infection before I'm toothless altogether?! Dentist keeps on preaching against anti-infection anti-biotics, despite my having a mitral prolapse/mitral valve heart regurgitation condition which is vulnerable to any kind of infection, even dental. At my insistence, patient was FINALLY prescribed a strong "augmentin" anti-biotic(after multiple other weak or inappropriate prescriptions for this condition)which has proved to be the most effective to day, making the gum feel more "normal" than it has in weeks if not months. It's patient's belief and conviction that if this very same anti-biotic were prescribed once more the infection would very well be cleared up permanently; but, naturally, the dentist would prefer to extract the next tooth rather than save it by eliminating the infection. If none of this were enough, yet another filling(the second of record)the dentist is responsible for has broken up and needs replacing, because the dentist insists upon using cheap, composite filling instead of long-lasting silver metal filling that had worn out for both molars(the sole two this patient has ever had)only after some four or five decades since the original silver metal fillings were made during patient's CHILDHOOD when true quality in dental service prevailed. Patient has repeatedly protested against padding the profits of either the dentist or the insurance carrier for shoddy, quick-fix, impermanent treatments that neither last nor cure severe adverse dental conditions. This review shall become favorable if and when patient receives the strongest possible anti-biotic to finally eliminate this simple gum infection as well as quality silver metal fillings comparable to the ones received during childhood to permanently, not temporarily, protect the unprotected teeth.
