<<I'm at the point where my original fillings from decades ago are going bad and needing refilling...... and I had a pile of them.....before fluoride.....


As I mentioned, I had several old gold crowns fail in ways that weren't detected or observed. This led to needing root canals as well as new crowns, and in one case required a tooth extraction and implant.

My dentist had commented that it might be worthwhile to replace those old crows, but I didn't take him up on that suggestion. The result was additional trouble an expense.

So if you trust your dentist, you might ask for advice on what work needs to be replaced, and consider following those suggestions.

When I asked my dentist to repeat his inspection of crowns, he found only one left that he thought should be replaced. I'm having that done next week.
