I have had two crowns from different dentists that have resulted in abscesses - the first of which went into my bone and I had to have surgery. I told both dentists that the crowns did not feel as if they were seated correctly, but of course I was ignored. The dentists have just told me that these things "happen". I don't believe it. It is either incompetence on their part, or there is something wrong with my body. I am otherwise a very healthy person with good dental hygiene, who eats well and takes supplements. I do go to a periodontist for gum disease that I have been told that I just have a certain type of bacteria in my mouth that causes this. Every time I have gone to the dentist - I have switched dentists and have gone to at least 6 in the past 5 years - it has resulted in some catastrophe that has cost me hundreds or thousands of dollars. I am so upset, I don't know what to do! Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
