Regular dentists suck. Sorry to put it so plainly.

Fluoride, mercury, root canals, x-raying - and they sure make a lot of money!

Go to one of those holistic dentists. It's worth the extra money.


My dentist tries to foist root canals and procedures on me at every turn. He does good work where I allow it, but I have to keep him on a short leash. I read somewhere that as much as 50% of such procedures are exploratory. Meaning "let's go in and see if this is really necessary".

I've read plenty of horror stories about dentists that are just like you describe. I pity people who get taken to the cleaners by them. It is hard to imagine a dentist wanting to do a root canal unless it was an absolute last resort.
