There is no safety issue with having multiple extractions with just lidocaine.The question is ,do all of these teeth need to be extracted? Many times we can save some of the lower teeth because wearing a lower denture can be tricky.There is no suction on the lower and keeping them in is a learning process. Do you have an xray of your mouth that you can upload?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
