My poor mom had 9 teeth removed, 7 filllings, a bridge removed, and 2 crowns added. The cost was astronomical since we do not have insurance and did not want to wait until there was an
opening at the teaching hospital. She was sedated for the whole 3 hour procedure and did not wake up until 20 hours later. She is now almost bald in the mouth and I do not know what to do next. The dentist suggested dentures but I don't know how cooperative my mom will be to let me put them on and off her and not to mention the extra work I will have in cleaning them in addition to her remaining teeth. She never
opens her mouth wide enough as it is just to brush them.
Bridge implant would be my ideal solution but that is more $$$$ and she will have to be put under again and the wait is endless just to see if it will take. Why is dental advancement so..... NOT advanced????
