Is it too late for me?

    I'm a 25 yr old man in a awful bind. While I was growing up, my
    parents couldn't afford to send me to the dentist, other than for
    pulling teeth. The only time I went is to pull a tooth that was
    rotten. My parents didn't stress dental hygeine(sp)when I was growing
    up. Now I finally have the means to pay for dental work and my dentist
    says it's too late. My teeth are too far gone! Can this be true? My
    front top teeth, although discolored, have no visible decay. I
    believe there is some decay behind these. I wouldn't mind getting a
    plate for the back but I really would like to keep my front teeth.

    I don't want to have dentures at this age. Is there any new
    technology or specialist that can help me through this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
