teeth pulling will hurt only after the anesthesia wears off. then they will give you pills to help you controll the pain.

id say getting teeth pulled is cheaper, but dont you want to have teeth in the long run?

well my teeth are in really bad shape. I dont know why but I just stopped brushing them a few years after I found out I had Chrones Disease(sp?). I pretty much just gave up on everything then. But I havent had any problems with it in a while even tho I havent taken my meds for it I just feel a whole bunch better. But back on topic, I just turned 21 and I have a job and my life is getting a little better each day so I want to have a good smile to go with me. I want it so I can hopefully get into a better carear. I need some more advice soon please because one of my front teeth just broke off yesterday. I dont want to go back to feeling bad again.

Generally, coryhi, Dentures are pretty costly if you're not covered by insurance (at least here in Canada, anyways). Your best bet is to look into veneers (covers for your teeth) or a good cleaning can generally make them look at least a little better.

Do some research on the American Dental Association's Website (If you're from the States) and they normally have suggested price guides for various procedures/products that dentists' usually follow.

I hope this helps!

Bad Teeth
I got then too fighting them my whole life. Here is what I know. It is not my fault. Some people never get cavities.
They are immune. They can eat sugar by the bag. Smoke and drink and never get a one. I have had my dentist scream at me to brush. I yelled right back ! I do more than three times a day. S. Mutant staph is the cause. It is technically resistant to antibiotics because it is the plack. They have been working on a vaccine for 10 years. Drug companies don't make cures you may have noticed. They make addicts. There is a lot more to this. It would take to long. Nothing will fix a rotted away tooth. It has to be pulled. The under gums can I use EVORA plus this replaces the mutants with good flora. It takes time. I personally think they made it to weak. It works nicely. Osteoporosis,Heart disease, strokes, diabetes, kidney
disease. My neck jaw back hurt all the time before. High blood pressure is better. The other is BIOTENE PBF mouth wash and they have a gum and other. This uses enzymes to super charge the good bugs and suppress the bad with a good shot of calcium for protection. Under $30 together. Best game in town for now. A vaccine would be better a shot or spray and never get a cavity again. Good Luck
