Dentures Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Continued infections and root canals - Denture Ready? I am considering getting a plate in either my upper or lower mouth or both (not partial - false teeth).

I have had a root canal in almost every tooth in my mouth (10 teeth only on bottom). They keep abscessing out - over and over. I cannot continue to afford root canals and crowns (at least 1,300 for both of them). Where do you draw the line with this?

Guessing over the last 10 years I alone have spent over 8,000 in my mouth not including what my insurance paid - which I have always had. I don't want plates but I cannot afford my teeth any more and I'm tired of the pain and infections. Now my dentist says many of these teeth may crack from all the work and chewing!!

Answer:
I believe the patient is the one in charge of their dental destiny.

So you need a live consult with a dentist to give you your options within your financial and emotional means.

If that means dentures... then it does. Remember that if the teeth are sound, there are severe repercussions from removing all of your teeth.

There is less taste, less biting pressure and resorption of bone that leads to looser dentures over time and on and on. That doesn't mean you can't have dentures. It just means you need to be properly informed of your choices.
