I am having four molar teeth out tomorrow, so nervous, advice please?

Relax: Take a deep breath. What you feel is very normal. Having removed thousands of teeth on thousands of patients over the years i can give you some perspective. The overall vast majority of patients tell me after the procedure, "that’s it? They’re out? "i didn't feel a thing!" and that was with just using a local anesthetic to numb them up. I also suggest you express your concerns to your dentist. ...Read more

The teeth don't go in and out, the gums over the teeth are inflamed/infected and demonstrate different digresses of swelling.

Bad bridge.: A new bridge should not break eating a sandwich. Something was wrong w/ its fabrication. If you don't want another bridge, the very best way to replace missing teeth, if possible, are implants supporting single crowns. They are easier to clean, never get cavities, look great and feel natural. That's the way i'd replace any missing tooth! ...Read more
