It's a possibility alright but I've read that with proper hygiene there's a good chance of keeping those teeth for the rest of your life. Depends on how long one lives of course. :biggrin:

They went hand in hand. During implant they did a sinus lift, since everything healed no more tooth pain and no more sinus infections. I asked for sedation .. didn’t hear or feel a thing. Some pain afterwards but not as bad as I thought it might be. Glad I had it done.

^^ I have never heard of a sinus lift before so I googled it..I would love if I could get this done...I have a back molar where my root is a hair away from my sinus ( saw it on the xrays when I went in complaining about a tooth ache and it was actually my root just poking my sinus) I am now going to see if I can get this done...thanks for the info :up:

I’m finally pain free after years of suffering. No it wasn’t cheap but well worth it.

When in doubt - read a book about the topic. Root canals ruin your health, slowly.

no problems with root canals but I would never do an implant...besides being very pricey I just find it too scary and it seems painful..I've spent good $$ on my teeth..oral hygiene is very important to me...started taking my son to the dentist when he was a wee one so he would get comfortable going regularly..I didn't want him to become like me..scared to death every time..I still get some anxiety and I go a few times a yr for cleanings
No, it wasn’t t 8 yrs apart. I had it two years ago, and it was extended to 10 yrs, so eight years remaining.

Had an implant and it went flawlessly. Just go to a specialist.

Another term for a replacement. :biggrin:

Works good post divorce as well, newer, younger, better looking, and makes you look better if you should ever happen to see the one that was removed.
