            years. Outwardly, I had beautiful teeth, but the gum disease is silent, painless, and invisible. Saw 5 dentists for more and more opinions because my teeth looked so great and I got compliments all the time. Ugh. 5K later, laser treatment for gum disease (LANAP), I'm doing great.

                cavities taken care of: painless. It's all painless these days. Do you have insurance? If not, you could go to a dental university and pay next to nothing. But, you gotta go. Don't be scared. Think of it as doing it for your health. You don't have to be in dentures ... it's not too late.

                    common that people don't see a dentist until their teeth are falling out. They are very understanding. You aren't the only one, believe me! I went through everything you're thinking and feeling and am now on the other side of it. It is the best thing I've ever done for myself and my health.

                      payment plan. Painless, no surgery (cutting into gums), and it's instant cleaning. Deep cleaning is expensive and doesn't work. I read all of the research before choosing the right path. Find an old school dentist who keeps on on technology, not a new dentist and fancy dental office where they have to pay for plasma tvs on the wall, etc... I can help you if you want.

                          if like the person, do a cleaning and diagnosis (about 80 bucks). Or, go to a dental school and it'll be about 25 bucks. Remember, YOU are in charge, not the dentist. Anything that you choose to do is because you researched it online and believe in the treatment.
