I got braces on yesterday and after a few hours they started to ache. But now there like heaps worse and i cant even tap them or swallow a drink without them sending shocks of pain through the whole ...
I have an intense phobia of dentists and because of this, my teeth are in really bad shape. After years of pain, I finally worked up the courage to make an appointment. My dentist says I need surgery,...
No, call the plumber. Duh! That's like asking if an ear doctor can give you hearing aids.
Unless all of your teeth have rotted away I would advise against this. I know three people with full dentures and none of them have anything nice to say about the procedure or their new teeth.
Your teeth are the beginning of your digestive system. Unless your teeth are damaging your health, why would you want to do this? If they are unsightly, so many new procedures will improve your appearance. They can be bleached, whitened. straightened, capped and filed. Any of these procedures would be preferable to pulling them. Your teeth are also the substantial form behind your facial structure, pulling them, regardless of the dentures will change your face. Go to a specialist, an orthodontist, a good one, and get professional guidance. Pulling teeth should be a last resort. In fact if a dentist told me I should get a tooth pulled, or have one of my children's teeth pulled for any reason, I would seek a new dentist or another opinion before doing so.
Not entirely sure, but I'm sure if you have a valid reason your dentist will agree to providing dentures. the following sites contain a LOT of really helpful information.
I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH DR. SAM AND EMMALUE. THERE ARE CERTAIN CONDITIONS WHERE KEEPING SOMEONES TEETH IN AN EXTREMELY POOR STATE WOULD ACTUALLY BE A TRAGEDY. THESE CASES DO NOT OCCUR OFTEN.
DENTISTS ARE TRAINED IN HELPING PEOPLE MAINTAIN THEIR TEETH FOR A LIFETIME. WHEN THAT'S NOT CLINICALLY ATTAINABLE, THEN DENTURES MAY BE THE ONLY FEASIBLE OPTION
Yes they will but only as a last resort....
depending on the state of your teeth, some dentists will do this. I work for a dentist that specializes in this particular procedure. Where they make your dentures during the day and then you come in later in the afternoon, get your teeth pulled, and they put your denture in right then and there to act as a bandaid. You would be surprised at the number of patients we have that undergo this procedure. ALso you could think about only having your bad teeth pulled and a partial made instead of a full denture.
Not sure,... does dentists usually pull teeth????????????? If not, try your gyno.lol
why would u want to do that???you like eatting from a straw?
yes. or he will refer you to someone who can.
Not enough detail in your question.
No dentist who wants to keep his or her license will pull healthy teeth, unless there is a very compelling reason. Maybe Dr. Sam can think of one, but I can't.
That should be your last option, but if your teeth are so bad and painful and you cant afford the "upkeep" then yes they'll probably do it. But don't think dentures will be the be all and end all. They are pricey too and it will take a long time for your gums to "settle down" before you get a "good fit" too.
My mom had problems with hers fitting right for years and she's had dentures for ever.
You could get steel implants and get screwed in teeth too if you had enough good bone left to do that. You probably wouldn't need more than 4 in your whole mouth...another option!
If you have no compelling reason to have all of your teeth removed, no ethical dentist would do this.
If your teeth are flapping in the breeze due to amazing amounts of bone loss or if they are more black than white due to gross decay, maybe it is the right thing to do.
If you have to have a large amount of radiation to your head and neck for cancer, it might be a reasonable consideration to remove your teeth prior to that treatment, but there are various factors to be considered.
Otherwise, if your teeth are in fairly decent condition and you are just tired of dealing with cleanings and the occasional filling, no reasonable dentist would do this.
There are plenty of unreasonable or unethical dentists in the world - especially the Third World - who would be happy to do it for you.
