Is it normal for a dentist to refuse to pull my remaining six top teeth and place a denture? They want to do two root canals and a partial and fillings instead. I have had problems with my top teeth my whole life from opiate use. Should a oral surgeon pull teeth if asked to place a denture. The dentist didn’t seem to have a problem with especially since he did a cold test on my teeth and they had no feeling. Any advice is appreciated.
