I didn't really have any reason to doubt her, though it did sound odd. She just kind of did it, not giving me a chance to react anyway. Now I have 3 back teeth with a whole bunch of silver them, though it is entirely unnecessary. I'm switching dentists, obviously.
Is there any reason I should be concerned about this? Is there any way it could harm my teeth if I don't get these removed? I'm a college student so if insurance didn't cover this (and I can't imagine it would) I don't have the money to do it at least not right now.
I'm really concerned that this could somehow affect my teeth causing future problems down the road. If this is the case, obviously something needs to be done to remove them. I really don't want my otherwise healthy molars to have issues! I'm only 20!
Should I contact the dentist and ask that she remove it herself? Isn't there some kind of precaution you're supposed to take when removing these kinds of fillings because of the mercury?
Thank you for your advice!
