All my life, I have taken good care of my teeth and had no cavities. About 5 years ago, the dentist found a pit & filled it with no medicine.
SInce then, I now I have from having a tongue ring in my mouth. (go figure) I of course took it out.
My previous dentist told me that I need to have a major deep cleaning and that I might lose my 3 front bottom teeth because of deep pockets in the back & receding gums, but he won't touch me because he said that they only use things that I am allergic too.
For 2 years now, I've avoided the problem with natural remedies, salt water, teas, peroxide, herbs (myrrh, neem), and not eating anything hard.
Most all dentists that I contact, only use novocaine, and don't believe me when I say I am allergic. I have a note from an allergist, but he won't even test me (too dangerous he says)
I'm terribly frightened because my front bottom tooth is lose and I have no dental insurance, no job, and am on permanent disability. What do I do if my tooth falls out, where would I go??
Any advice would be appreciated.
