Yet Another Prep Appointment

Some advice for anyone undergoing a total reconstruction -- make sure at the outset that you and your posthedontist are on the exact same page.  I mean, get into the details.  Find out what types of crowns your prosthodontist will use and be clear about what color you want.  This may require some strategic planning of using whitening agents.  This will save you time and headaches in the long run.

Yesterday I spent another 3 hours at Dr. S's office doing to prep work for the porcelin crowns.  This actually required more drilling!  Let's just say I'm glad to have that behind me.  I'm ready for these crowns to be done!

Four months later ...

Well its been four months since the process of finalizing my front crowns began and they still aren't in. Had a slight detour--in November I had to have an emergency root canal and apparently the endodontist went to far up into the root causing inflammation. So 10 days ago I had surgery on the gum above the root canal to fix that. And still no crowns.

I'm not to happy at the moment with my prosthedontist. It seems to me this is taking all too long!
