Hi. Really like reading this site, helps knowing I'm not the only one in this. Just looking for some thoughts on my situation, see what others think. I have gone to a new dentist after an extensive time of not seeing one because one of my front teeth broke off. I'm blessed in that while sensitive it is not painful at this time. After an exam they tell me I need several crowns and multiple fillings. They did a lot of x-rays including the one that goes all around your head and a cleaning. I saw the x-rays and pictures they took so feel confident they know what they are talking about. Up front like many others here finances are a concern, so will have to do things in stages. The front teeth is what I'm really looking for input on. They explained implants, along with cost but say they will last me on out. I am pushing 50. Also they are talking a 4-6 tooth bridge possibly. These are my top teeth we are speaking of. He point blank said there is no saving my front two.The one on either side of them, he says will need to go eventually as well. The next one over on either side are both crowned already. Talking of working them into a bridge as well. These crowns are 20 years old.Lots of info.Would appreciate any feedback on these options. Thanks.
