All teeth on top row, other than the front two, need extraction - Any advice?
Any thoughts / suggestions appreciated...
I'm going to need a few from the bottom set and most of my remaining tops [ all except the front pair ] removed.
I've got dentures lined up to 'fill in the gaps'.
My dentist seems to be reluctant [ refuses ] to consider extracting the two front ones - as they are "still OK" .
He calls it a cosmetic procedure [ not available on the NHS* ] - but i could probably get it done elsewhere if need be .
My question is - is it worth keeping these top 2? They aren't as bad as the rest but are on their way out.
Not only will they look like totally different [ i.e. crap ] compared to the 'new' ones - i also wonder if there are any potential complications / hassle from keeping them. They will need regular work and eventually to come out sooner or later anyway.
Or - is it better to keep them for some reason? I don't know - maybe they'd help the dentures stability? i have no idea - but interested to hear opinions.
