Question by Clare: Teeth advice, do you think its reasonable to ask my dentist this…?
My teeth are in really bad condition. The top ones in particular give me a lot of trouble. I wear a partial denture as I had to have a front tooth out.
The 2 smaller teeth either side of the very front ones are dead and have swelling at the root or something, they need root canals which i am 100% sure im not having done.
My left canine tooth has snapped in half.
And the molars at the back have big fillings in them which cause a lot of sensitivity and pain.
Im scared of the dentist, I get very panicy when I have to go there.
As my teeth need a lot of work done and give me a lot of pain Id like to ask my dentist if he can pull my top teeth out and give me a denture. As i already wear a partial I don’t think it would take much getting used to. Does this sound reasonable or will he think im crazy

It’s not an unreasonable request to make, as long as you are happy with it.
If your teeth are in quite a bad way and you think this is the solution then it should be fine. it could save you a lot of pain (and money) if you have them removed.
