Id that was probably better Dr. Murphy is great, he looked at my teeth and explained my options and when I said dentures instead of partials, he said that was probably better and cheaper.

I did not feel listened to and I was not given choices, just what they were going to do which was told to me as this is a temporary fix and we will see if it works which seems contradictory. I would like to be given scenarios, recommendations - more than one. I would also prefer that temporary fixes be discussed more - why not just fix the problem right the first time. I have had the following issues since the temporary fix was completed - the feeling of the composite/filling material being all over my entire mouth/gum area - this was not discussed as a potential issue. Problems flossing. There was no follow up after the appointment to see how it went.
