My dentist has recommended a temporary denture, but is a temporary bridge a possibility?

Friday, March 4th, 2011
Q.

Hi, I am having an upper !st molar extracted and my dentist has recommended a temporary denture until my gum heals, before i can get a bridge fitted. Is this the only option? Or could i get a temporary bridge? The two surrounding teeth are undamaged and not filled.

I have a tooth ache, could I have something wrong with my spleen?

Friday, March 4th, 2011
Q.

I have a toothache in my bottom molar, no 6 on my left. I assumend something was rotten and rushed off to the dentist. He checked it out carefully, and found nothing wrong. He X-rayed the tooth, the root from both sides, and said there was nothing wrong. He found a lot of plaque on the inside of my bottom teeth and especially on the sore one. He said he thought that the tooth was reacting supsiciously to the plaque. We had it removed by th oral hygienist. Now the plaque is gone, and the tooth is still sore. It is sensitive to pressure, hot and cold liquids. It is not excruciating, and it doesn’t seem to get worse. It just stays like that. I’ts been more than a month.

A friend said that one’s teeth are linked to certain organs, and apparently, that tooth is linked to the spleen or the stomach – she said it is on the same “meridian”, so if there is nothing wrong with the tooth, it might be that there is something wrong with the spleen. I would appreciate your comments on this, or how to proceed from here.

If the dentist didn’t find anything wrong, and I paid through my neck for the appointment, I can’t imagine going back. What more can he do than all the Xrays etc.?

Can you advise me what to do with my issues with dental bridges being improperly fitted?

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011
Q.

Why would a proffesional dentist fit bridges to 3 main teeth to hold the bridges knowing that these teeth were in poor condition and would eventually rot causing the bridges to slacken and fall out…..plus 1 bridge wasnt fitted right leaving huge gap..was told they would last 10 years also i am still paying for all the work done but sadly all the bridges need to be removed…..After getting my 2 front teeth fitted in for the 2nd time in December 07…I saw a dentist here in Scotland the following March his oppinion was that the teeth were wrongly fitted and after xrays so many problems were found…I was sent to a private independant dentist and had my mouth full checked so much was found and was told that all bridges have to be removed…So please tell me why????….I cannot eat right hav’nt for a few years now….After contacting the dentist who did the work offered me to come back and she would remove them and make me false dentures at no cost…now that says a lot!….I had the work done in Salford by a Dr X..I cannot travel there been ill have Ruhmatoid Arthritis prevents me barely moving…Please advise me on this matter…My teeth are in very poor contition..I have been mucked about with dentists for many years now….Is money all that matters to them what about what it does to the patient….Believe me it has ruined my life….I await your reply….thankyou!..
