Hun, I've had 8 teeth pulled outta my head and a bunch of fillings, and then a bunch of fillings switched over from amalgam to composites plus all the crowns. I've not had a root canal but I'm thinking that a root canal is worse than getting a tooth pulled. BTW, dentists don't like to leave spaces in your mouth b/c your teeth drift--did the dentist provide a plan for that? I see a holistic doc right now and by far the people who come in the sickest are those with dental infections. It takes a lot of time and money to get them fixed up again and sometimes those infections have gone undx'ed for years.

...and more time and money the longer one waits. I've had fillings, too, just like you (switched over) which was a pain literally and figuratively, but by this time I'm used to it. Couple years of orthodontia, and now porcelain veneers, I'm really quite comfortable with doctors grinding, filling, and polishing my teeth. Seriously.

Curious whose "time and money" for the destitute? What, do they just die otherwise? Sounds like OP's mission, which seems a bit sad to me. Thinking on it, "sedation dentistry" and if anyone will take on as a charity case sounds like one possible plan.

Knew a woman who had abysmal teeth for behavioral reasons (mental problems). As in, "all of them." Let's not go into specifics around the 'why'. Pretty sure she had them all pulled, in the end, and dentures created and paid for mostly under public assistance. She was in her 40s. I didn't quite hear the end of the story, but sounded like the best she could do under the circumstances. I was the one who suggested it, some years prior, but events (and reality) finally caught up to her.

Hope it works out for OP.

OP's response after getting sound, heart-felt advice.



I must have missed the HUGE list the OP speaks of...I only saw the 10 items listed above (and, quite frankly, some of those are downright bizarre reasons).

End result: OP will (eventually) become very ill from the inevitable infection that will set in. It may take some time, but without removing the teeth, it will happen. The OP seems to believe that dead (ie: decaying / rotting) teeth left in her body will be managed with homeopathic oils and brushing with baking soda (for the rest of her life...50 some years?!).

I am so glad we all pay into healthcare for a reason...

Those are a lot of good reasons

Nobody is stopping you from choosing to die. You're a big girl so you get to make your own decisions. BTW, your biggest problems are not in your teeth.

Truly not a troll.

I have no real choices here. I've screamed and cried and I'm not really scared or upset anymore. Death happens to everyone. Someday you and I won't be here I'm not scared of it. Not anymore.
