Do I have to pay for this service? Here's my situation.. I'm
Here's my situation.. I'm currently receiving dental care at the University of Washington Shool of Dentistry. It's a teaching facility and the students are dentists working on advanced degrees. I had an infection in my gum on a tooth in the upper back region of my mouth - where I chew. I was told I had to have a tooth removed. The tooth was removed by a periodontist in training on November 8th, 2018. Some ground up bone was put in the open gap to prepare for an implant that was scheduled for March 1st, 2019. I was told not to chew on that side of my mouth - which I didn't because I didn't want to jeopardize any chance of compromising the implant. (Also, I couldn't chew in that area because of the sensitivity). In early January 2019, eight weeks after I had my tooth pulled, I was watching television, when the an adjoining tooth (to the one I had pulled) broke off, for no apparent reason. The adjoining tooth that broke off had a crown on it (which was put on 10 to 12 years earlier (2007 to 2009). The tooth (with the crown attached) broke off at the base of the gum. My questions are these: Did the tooth break off because there was no support next to it - since there was an open space where a tooth was pulled? Shouldn't a filler (or guard of some type) have been placed in the open space, created by my pulled tooth, to provide some type of support since my implant procedure was not scheduled for 5 months? And should the school of dentistry be held responsible for repairing the broken tooth? … read more

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.

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.

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!!
