Customer Question
i had a broken cap...

i had a broken cap which i tied together with unbreakable floss. i finally found a dentist to remove the cap, but left residue from the previous cap. My gums are very sore and burning. I can't get a dentist or peridonist to cut the floss so it will come out. They can not see it on an xray and will not remove what they can't see. I've seen several dentists with different excuses not to take the filling residue off my tooth and to cut the unbreakable floss. May have to have tooth removed to break all the floss. Is there anything else I can do because floss in traped in teeth where there must receded gum tissue. Please help I am in pain.  My grandson just changed internet and put in new email. If it doesn't take can you call?

Good morning! I'm so sorry to hear you are having this problem. Have you already been in to see a periodontist for this issue? Or just the dentist who removed the cap? Do you think you could get a photo of the area, so I can see what's going on?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

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!!
