My children's dentist
retired a couple years ago and his practice was taken over by another dentist. My younger children are now needing 5-10 are now needing more dental
work than my 3 older children ever did. The new dentist won't seal the kids teeth (he says it wouldn't have worked on any of their 7 cavities
because they are all between teeth) and I don't trust whether my kids are actually needing all these fillings
. He said my 8 year old may need a root canal
as well on one of his cuspids (2 of which have cavities). He told me that my 8 year old likely won't lose his cuspid until he is 11 or 12 which is why this work is necessary. Do you recommend sealants for children? Will it help protect the areas between teeth or just the chewing surface? He doesn't do sealants generally and commented that I have good dental insurance
so my portion of the filling cost is quite small (which really rubbed me the wrong way). Any advice? My name is ***** *****
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I just typed it above….in the name area. Can you see it?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dentists generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
