So glad to read about your healing. It's hard, like impossible to find dentists that are very qualified. Because of having the worst dentists, my teeth have suffered even doing a super diet. For example, one crown is loose, new dentist is taking it off this wk. and thinks decay is working on the tissues if I heard him right, cavaties, root canals done, not great and lots of dental work needed in between seeking job, etc. I always feel at the mercy of dentists and he is eventually getting a cavatation machine which I never had used on me, but it sounds like time before that.
