Hello everyone, as I type this, I am on my sanity's end. I've gone through a depressive rut for the past year, due to not being able to afford college. So, I neglected my teeth. I went to the dentist yesterday for the first time in 2 years, and the doctor made me wait 2 hours in his chair, then he came in for 2 seconds, looked at my teeth and told me I had overcrowding, chipped fillings, and cavities. But this is where it got weird. He turned to the side and told me, my financial advisor will be with you soon to discuss what your insurance covers. This lady comes in, he leaves, and tries to tell me to get whitenings, braces, loans for said braces, and lastly, she looks at my xray on the screen and says I have a pocket, and that I should get antibiotic cleaning. I'm unsure of whether I should get a second opinion, because as far as I know, she is not a doctor. I've been crying all night for two nights straight while this metallic taste in my mouth and burning sensation continues. They didn't even clean my teeth. I don't want a life long disease, but it does run in my family. I feel like ending my life. Please, worse case scenario someone please tell me my options, I feel dead inside.
