Question DetailsAsked on 7/23/2013

How do I choose a dentist when I have many broken or missing teeth?

At least half of my teeth are capped or consist mostly of filling material. Within the last several months, 1 cap snapped off, a bridge broke off of the supporting teeth, a tooth consisting of mostly filling material broke off, and one of my front teeth broke in half vertically.

How do I find a dentist that can handle problems like mine? I believe I will need someone beyond the basic dentist.

Sounds like you need a reconstructive oral surgeon or dental fixture specialist - I doubt Angie's List will break it down that fine for you. If you trust your current dentist but just feel this is beyond him, ask for a referral to a reconstructive fixtures dentist or oral surgeon.

If you don't trust your dentist, then Search the List and read the reviews on local dentists - some of the reviews may give hints at which commonly do bridges and such,otherwise you may just have to choose a half dozen that look good from reviews, then start calling around to see if they specialize in this type of work, or if the one you are calling does not, ask who they recommend.
