Started going back when my bridge came loose after eating the Laguna Beach taffy. Switched to Jodi's dentist after a while as mine was no longer addressing my needs. Much better experience with the new dentist, can now catch up on work that needed to be done but wasn't being acknowledged by prior provider.
This needs to happen fairly soon. I need an implant, or at least for someone to remove the last piece of orthodontic apparatus from my mouth.
Explanation: I'm missing an adult tooth on the top left side of my mouth. When I was a teenager, my dentist removed the baby tooth and used my braces to pull the tooth behind it forward - both to make the gap less visible (because it would be further back in my mouth) and to encourage bone growth so that a future implant would have sufficient bone to hold onto. The gap has since been maintained through creative use of orthodontic devices, and while my teeth are doing just fine, the metal is digging into my gum and that's bad.
