If you have lost a tooth, it generally needs to be replaced.
A partial is removable and does not require removal of tooth structure. A bridge is fixed and does require that the adjacent teeth be ground down in order to fit the bridge in place.
You may want to consider an implant though. they are better all around because they are for life, and no other teeth need to be touched. You always want to save your natural tooth structure.

Q&A: Is the Michigan Dental Assisting School at Bright Side Dental worth it?

Question by Lisa: Is the Michigan Dental Assisting School at Bright Side Dental worth it?
It’s a 10 week program. The tuition is $ 3,500 due up front. I’m thinking about signing up for their application for their credit card so I can make monthly payments, but I doubt I’ll get approved. I have my bachelors degree in speech pathology but I only applied to one school for the masters program and I did not get in. I applied to dental assistant jobs that say they will train the right person, but unfortunately, I received no calls. I’m just trying to find a decent paying job so I can move out of my parents house and live on my own. Anyway, they say DA’s make 29-37,000 in Michigan. I have to pay back the money they loan me on their credit card in 18 months at 14.9% interest. I’m not good with numbers and calculations, but should I just apply anyway?

Please be aware that their website doesn’t mention anything about being accredited in any way (not even nationally accredited which is basically worthless 🙂 In addition, the school is NOT accredited by the “American dental association”.

Please also instead consider the more affordable (and usually more reputable) *community college* and/or the *state-public university* (or even the county vo-tech adult school) as long as the program is accredited within the industry. Just an fyi that “American public university” is a for-profit school.

For U.S. colleges (though please still forgo those for-profit schools): http://www.utexas.edu/world/univ

General career info: http://www.bls.gov/ooh and can search.

Before considering dental assistant training, please look through some dental textbooks such as those found at the local community college library that offers a dental assistant/dental hygiene program or a local dental/medical school library. Some patients may have severe dental disease which can be difficult for some to handle.

With regard to moving out, you may be aware, but saving up one’s money is crucial before having enough to get one’s own place 🙂 How about working out a budget of your monthly expenses vs. how much money you have to work with, at this point.

I have a serious decay to one teeth . Dentist recommends rooth canal?

Question by sobusy: I have a serious decay to one teeth . Dentist recommends rooth canal?
But I am missing the two molars near this tooth and I was thinking why should I treat this teeth and pay $ 800 for root canal,instead to just pull it out since is cheaper and since I am going to do either an implant or a denture for the next neighbor teeth. Am I right or the dentist? I know many dentists are just looking to take more money instead of the patient’s interest.That’s why I am asking you r opinion.Thanks.
