I've had dentist tell me several different times throughout the years that its always better to keep your natural teeth but I wouldn't expect them to say anything any different.  lol  I do, however have a sister who made the decision in her early 20's to get all her teeth pulled and went with full dentures.  She had really soft teeth and they stayed yellow all her life.  She has never regretted that decision.

It doesn't hurt to get a second opinion from another Dentist. Another one perhaps will let you weigh all of your options and help you make a good decision for you. That is a personal decision that only you can make. :peace:

I agree, I could give you suggestions according to what I think and feel but it won't be a professional response.

I agree this is a personal decision but, getting a second opinion  and weighing all the options will give you a better feel as to what your decision should be.  You never know the second Dentist may have other options than the first Dentist advised that may be less invasive.  Doesn't hurt to get that second opinion.  Hope this helps.  :)

I would say it depends on how much pain the teeth you have left are giving you.  if not too much get the caps...if they cause a lot of pain, go with the falsies!

I would suggest you to get them pulled, as you have only some left and the others are pulled there are high chances that the remaining teeth will also give you pain in the near future. So I feel that it will be better that you get all of them pulled. You can get some nice information on MySmileKeeper.

if capping can save them - I would definitely opt to keep what you have - the plate can always come later, if you run out of options, but keep what you have as long as you can - no regrets this way...   :present:

I think this post should be in the "off-topic" board. The suggestions here are supposed to be about FC :)
