Grea Thanks

I was presented with only one treatment option. When I asked about any other treatments I was told that I wouldnt be happy with the (one) other option . I have taking very good care of my teeth and had a failing root canal tooth pulled this summer. My root canal was the result of a fractured jaw that happened in a car accident when I was 14. I asked about a partial or implant for another alternative treatment plan. I was told I would forget about having a parcial and bite into an apple or something. I repeated I was not in any way shape or form comfortable with the option (only one offered to me) they were pushing. I was very clear that I was not on board with them pulling two more (healthy teeth), and grinding down two more teeth to make a bridge. To me this seems overkill. I was very clear that I didnt agree with affecting 4 teeth to fix pulling one bad tooth. I explained to them that I was very concerned about removing more heathy teeth. I likened if to if I had a infected hand they were going to remove it at the elbow, no wait better yet remove it at the shoulder to make sure they got it all! And I said that very same thing to them to stress that I was not comfortable with the option they wanted to do. I cried the whole way home. the next day I contacted another dentist that gave me other options for bridges and for implants. I am looking into a second option as of now. Staff and everyone involved has been respectful and professional. I just would like to consider ALL treatment plans.

My wisdom teeth were extracted on 6/26/17. That evening on his way home, Dr. Schmidt gave me a house call in order to check on my wounds. This kind gesture greatly reassured me that I was healing properly.
