    I think I have developed an allergy to the filling material my dentist uses.

    I think I have developed an allergy to the filling material my dentist uses.

    Well, there wasn't a problem with the permanent crown, once it replaced the temporary, NO irritation, so I believe it is the material used in the temporary. Now, the material my dentist used to fill the hole he drilled in my permanent crown is bothering my mouth just like that "temp" crown...

    Help needed: Post and crown vs Implant

    Hi, I have already had 2 of these done, and am working on #3 and #4. Number three is not as co-operative as I had to have that tooth scaled due to sensitivity, and the dentist found a lot of gum tissue that was not healthy that had to be removed. These are all front teeth, and all had been...
