12 year molar crowns
joeblanchard1 posted:
My son had to get his 12 year molars crowned when he was 5. He is 8 now and is complaining of pain on the right side molars. What is causing the pain? Why did the crowns go bad? Was there a mistake in the crowns or how they were put in? He is diabetic, so surgery is always a big deal. Money is also very tight now. don't have the money to replace them. what are my options? thanks
Zev Kaufman, DDS responded:
Dear joeblanchard1:

Although I would love to give you a diagnosis over the internet, without a proper examination and X-rays it will all be pure speculation.

You MUST take your son to the dentist! Finances are NOT a factor. You can find out free and reduced fee clinics in your area. Dental schools and hospitals also offer reduced fee, and sliding scale payments.

The cost of regret is immeasurable and dental problems ONLY become worse.

Please take your son to the dentist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Best wishes,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
