Thanks for your lengthy reply. I think Huggins is no longer around here--he was in Longmont I believe, but right now I think he's out of this area totally.
At this point I think this is going to be my course of action after reading everyone's sharing experiences and help: get xrays taken and have a dentist friend who used to practice in her other country, near Russia I believe, take a look at them. She has 14 years under her belt and tonight told me metal is bad so I was excited for her wisdom that I knew here. We know the limits of one working on others w/o a license recognized here, but at least I am going for this friend's eval before I dive into anything. My appt. is either Thurs/Fri. with my dentist, take xrays, get his expertise opinions which I am not going to weight very highly on as he believes in implants so that's a red flag to me from the start. I may have someone remove the crowns, clean up there or else keep them off even after cleaned up. I need to be discreet as I write here. I am not in favor of the implants, not in favor of the extracts my dentist wants to do. I feel a great connection has come in my path, so my regular new dentist is now just for the xrays this wk. One tooth he wanted to pull for $135-200 depending on how tough the job turned out to be. I do see some cavatities happening and believe one of the crown, upper left side is the problem as I can feel a gap there that the dentist has not discussed yet. Maybe he will when the xrays happen, but he's quickly becoming history in this time with him.
I am waiting on rawguru.com to get their toothpaste ready for market. He has tried it on several people and the results have been fab including his own, being remineralized teeth. I know I have to have the decay taken out but may opt for tea tree oil to help with that or just use the tea tree oil totally for the decay, then use this toothpaste gel. Thanks again. Toothaches come and go and never know just when. Never experienced this and can't imagine 15 years or even one month of this pain. Off to brush teeth.
