Using a Cheap Alloy Instead of a Gold Crown

I have some sensitivities to metals and other dental materials. When I needed a root canal treatment and dental crown, I specifically asked my dentist to provide me with a gold alloy crown so I would have less to worry about.

Affordable Crown Costing Me a Fortune

I needed a dental crown and my dentist was going to charge $1000. I found another dentist about twenty minutes away who only charges half of that, which was much more affordable for me. Initially, that was great news, but it has fallen off six times since I got it, two months ago. Each time, […]

Can’t Afford Pediatric Dentist; Are General Dentists Cheaper?

There are two pediatric clinics in our area. One has a great reputation but is expensive. The other is cheaper and where all the low-income families go (we’re low-income ourselves), but has a horrible reputation and I don’t know a child who likes it. I don’t want to send my son there. Would a general […]

I never got to go to the dentist as a child. I saved up for two years to go now that I’m in college, just to see what I’m dealing with. He said my mouth was in horrible shape and I needed something called a full mouth reconstruction. I knew there’d be some problems because […]
