Q.

need to fix teeth soon

what would you recomend to be the cheeper and fastest option to repair my teeth, i have not been to a dentist in ages, and the last time i was about 3 years ago he told me i had a cavity in almost every tooth, now in the last month i have broken 2 teeth, im not sure if its because of the cavitys or if the pregnancy drained me, none the less i have to do something urgently now - and im paying cash not medical.
is it better to put crowns on or to pull all the teeth and put inplants in - i know its probably better to just do a dozen fillings and be done but that would be just delaying the inevetible.

what do crowns cost more or less and time to complete the process from start to finish and then the same what do implants cost more or less and time to complete the process from start to finish?

Thanks so much
