I would be uncomfortable feeling rushed as well. That is how I often felt with my previous dentist. My oral surgeon was fantastic and would always take time, even if he was running late (which is probably why he was late most of the time). I always had to wait at least 30 min past my appointment time, but I didn’t mind since he was so great.I didn’t get to spend too much time with the oral surgeon. He was in a rush as he was 30 minutes behind schedule and a number of patients were still waiting. His assistant did the CT Scan for me and he basically looked at the CT scan and told me that he will do everything all at once and about 3 months, I can put the tooth back. Not much time for questions. He already escorted me to the billing specialist. I thought they would at least inspect the broken tooth and gum. That’s why I didn’t feel comfortable about it. And when I emailed him my questions, the front desk emailed me back without consulting with oral surgeon. I know because I had a following questions specifically to check with the surgery and she told me that he was out of office and won’t be back until 3 days later. I had a very bad experience with a surgery with anesthesia and ended up with hooking in a ventilator for 6 days and almost didn’t make it. So I am extremely nervous. I told the surgeon about my concern, but he said it sould be fine this time.
Yes, I was referring to why wearing the flipper after extraction and implant. And what you said make sense. My dentist told me that it’s not necessary because front tooth won’t shift position. Actually having the flipper will make me feel better after extraction because I will not be able to see the would; otherwise I might faint. I afraid if wounds and blood. Currently putting in the flipper is a challenge. Every day I spent 1-2 hours in the bathroom trying to put it on and because of that I don’t feel like eating multiple meals. So now I only eat lunch and dinner and completely skip snacks.
Yes, you are correct. The dentist smooth of surface for the broken tooth, so it looks like there’s no tooth, but the root is still there.
I just want to fast forward to 5 months later, so everything is settled.
My surgeon told me the teeth could shift, but my teeth are also crowded so it could have just been me. I didn’t wear mine at home after the first week or so. I just wore it when I went out or had company.
I hope it all goes well for you!!!
