It's definetly a hard choice to make. If it hasn't happened to you, it's so easy to say I would do this or that. When your a teneeager and it happens, you listen to your mom, dad and dentist. You think they know everything. As you get older and if you have an infection, it's hard to determine what to do because there is a financial consequence involved. do you get them pulled, if so, do you get implants, bridges, etc. All that stuff is not cheap, so I guess one wants to rid the infection. That was my case, and that is why I started OP'ing and also getting ozone injected into the gum. My bone is growing back where the infection was, which is a good thing. But the gum line has receded, now I'm looking at surgery there, plus what to do with the teeth. It's a hrd choice what to make.
