I saw the doctor on Tuesday and since then I cannot stop crying. He said I have an advanced parodontitis. I already lost 5 teeth. He wants to remove 11 more teeth (11 teeth!!!), and to put partial dentures, and to deep clean the rest front teeth. I do not have money nor dental insurance. I am 38. What am I suppose to do? Is there anything that can be done beside extraction???

It is not possible to make a diagnosis without a complete physical examination. The limited history is also not helpful.

It would be best that you consult with your doctor and seek a proper medical opinion.
