Young athletes are at risk for injuries to their teeth, jaws and head while playing. But is it worth the cost for a custom-fitted mouth guard from the dentist?
If your filling fell out and you can locate it, keep it for your dentist.
Dental care can get expensive quickly. Here's how to save money on your oral health care.
If you chose to go the other way, some Prosthodontists will place and restore the implants themselves. In other cases, an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist will place the implant and a Prosthodontist or General Dentist restores it. Fees can vary quite a bit from office to office and with the different options for restorative materials. Some offer free consultations, for others, they charge a fee that might be applied to any future treatment in some cases.
The first step is to schedule a few consultations with different providers, which it sounds like you've already done.
The most important factors when deciding which practitioner to work with:
.1. You should feel comfortable asking your doctor any questions so that you have a good understanding of the procedure itself, healing time and long-terem outcome, and possible complications. Write down a list of questions and take them with you to the consultation.
2. Ask about the experience of the practitioner. How many similiar procedures have they completed? Have they had any major complications with any cases? Ask to see photos if possible.
3..Figure out if it works out better for your schedule, to go to a "one stop" provider or to separate providers for the placement and the restoration of the implants.
4. Follow your instincts. If you feel rushed, didn't get direct answers to your questions, didn't communicate well or had any other negative feelings, this probably isn't the doctor for you.
5. Consider insurance coverage and financing options. If your dental plan covers implants and it is important to you to use a preferred provider, you will want to check your list. Many times, insurance does not cover implants, or at least not all of the steps. You may want to inquire about payment and financing options.
I hope this at least helps you feel a little less confused and a little more directed. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further help.

At any point in the process, did they have you sign something saying you were happy with the denture set up? Some practitioners will document the patient's acceptance at the try-in appointment, before the denture is processed. At that time, changes in tooth arrangement, size and color can be made with minimal lab expense.
If the letter doesn't get you anywhere, you might try going to the governing body of the dental profession in your area. I am a dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA. Here, we have the Missouri Dental Board (or the Dental Division of the Missouri Department of Professional Registration.) This is the entity that licenses us to perform our professional duties in our state. They often have a process to file complaints against a provider if you were unable to resolve the problem yourself. After your complaint is received, they will contact the doctor to get their side of the story, then try to mediate a solution between the two parties.
As far as a new set of dentures, you might seek out the services of a Prosthodontist (specializes in dentures and removable appliances - extra training and certification beyond general dentistry) or go to a local dental school. The students are supervised and checked off at each step by professionals. Most dental schools also treat patients through their faculty practices, and you can often get the services of a specialist at a lower price.
I hope this information is helpful to your situation, and I wish you well.

Tmj Treatment reviews in Mesquite
I have very extensive crown work, they were done ten years ago in Hawaii. They started to crack over time. i have been to many cosmetic dentist over the years since i no longer live in Hawaii, and as i feared, the work has been a disappointment ...MoreRead more of this review and charges are unreasonable. I finally found Dr. . He is very thorough, efficient and has a lot of integrity in his work.
I had a difficult tooth in the front that cracked and i was extremely worried about matching the color with the rest of my crown. He kept my cracked crown as a model and have the new crown fitted exactly in color and shape as the old crown. I am a hard to please patient and this time, i am very happy. He did a perfect job and his charges are reasonable.
I am very grateful i found hits Dentist.
I was also set up for two visits so they could do my whole mouth. One on Tuesday and one on Thursday. They are so busy it takes a couple of months to get in. I was still living 2 hours away and missed my first appointment. The next available appointment was not for 3 more months but they knew that I lived out of town and put me on a cancellation waiting list. They moved some scheduling around and was able to get me in on the same day I was scheduled but did my whole mouth. I've been to many organizations where I was less than satisfied and it is hard for me to rate highly for any organization so I felt it was necessary to take the time and rate this Dentist office with a 5 star rating. I would recommend anyone for this Dentist office.
So, I was a bit skeptical about going to another sleep apnea specialist. Dr. and staff are ...MoreRead more of this review the polar opposite of my first dentist.
I've been a patient for over a year and can honestly say that Dr. is a top practitioner and a terrific person. You're always greeted warmly by the staff with professional grace (even when I dropped by without an appointment).
Dr. has a full compliment of high tech equipment to custom fit not only the appliance but also the treatment. She uses home based sleep studies, in-office interviews and blood pressure readings to measure the progress of each client.
The appliance has been a god-sent, it's rugged, fits perfectly and being able to adjust it myself has avoided the need to make an appointment for every minor tweak. ...and not to mention I'm sleeping well and not drowsy during the day...Yay!
Dr. does not cut corners and is tirelessly patient with every patient.
is a great example of what makes a wonderful place to live and work.
