Q.

missing teeth

morning, i am a 37 year old lady. one of my teeth at the back of my mouth was pulled a while back as the dentist said he can not safe my tooth. now i have this ugly gap when i smile or laugh. its now really starting to have a negative effect on my self esteem as everybody jokes with the gap. i did have a false tooth made but the one which have the whole upperpart that goes in your mouth. i have medical aid but they won''t pay for other treatment for a false tooth. i can not stand that false tooth as i get very nausea when the food gets stuck under the tooth and after all this time my voice sounds completely different and it feels like i for ever have fluids in my mount. where can i go for treatment for another option. thanks
