I am 60 years old and I would like to know if there are others who have, or have had extreme anxiety about the loss of the first adult tooth, in the smile line? I have never had a broken bone, nor have I ever lost a tooth, other than the wisdom teeth. I think that if I had experienced either of those, I would have a good frame of reference. Or not be so afraid.
I have kept my tooth in for five months now, past the Dentist recommendation for extraction.
