Went in for an exam with a new dentist and long story short, I have very very bad teeth needing several root canals, extractions, caps, you name it. I initially went in because I have a huge cavity on my wisdom tooth that's been causing severe pain to the face, ear, throat, etc. I told them all upfront how much...
I'll start off my saying I'm 17 years old so in just one year I will legally be an adult. For most people my age, getting your wisdom teeth out is the event we dread. I've been dreading it since I was nine and my mom had hers out. For years I waited for the day that I'd be told I needed them out but...
What? I have a whole mouth full of silver fillings.
I went to the dentist 4 weeks ago, and I was terrified of it. I went there and the dental assistant told me that the tools are obtained from an autoclave bag. He told me that there was supposed to be some blue indicator, but later when I saw the bag, I did not see the blue indicator.

I have to shower twice a day (once in the morning and once at night) so that I don't smell. I am a girl, by the way. My boyfriend showers once every three days and has never smelled.

My teeth are very straight.
My breath smells nice.

only the silver ones - or amalgams may have some mercury. but i would say 99% of all modern dentists now use the white fillings instead, which don't have mercury.
you can always call local dentists and see how much their cavity fillings cost, and what procedures they use. if you have dental insurance, you...
