ABC News
Q: I had an appointment for a dental cleaning in December. I filled out the form, paid a $25 co-payment and they put me in the chair, ready to take an X-ray. I told them I didn't want the X-ray. The dentist took a look at my teeth, and he said I have good teeth, but they couldn't clean them unless I took an X-ray there or transferred one from another office. So I asked for my co-payment back and went home.

Tooth implant solution has immediate results
Florida Today
Here's the scenario: A person sees the dentist and gets fillings. Those fillings then deteriorate, requiring crowns. The teeth then decay under the crowns and need to be extracted. Or a person has periodontal disease and the teeth loosen. Fortunately, this problem doesn't happen to most of us. But for the few that it does happen to, it can be frustrating for the patient as well as the dentist. Understandably, some patients choose to leave dental care entirely because it just doesn't work for them.
