I have seven cavities. Some are chipped teeth via bruxism. Some are genuine cavities from poor dental hygiene.
I am opposed to going to a dentist unless it's absolutely necessary, as I'm low on funds and desperate. I do not qualify for any free rides that I'm aware of in my area, and it's a pre-existing condition, so I'm pretty sure dental insurance wouldn't cover the work.
My question. I have access to the tools and materials which dentists use.
Is it preferable to leave open cavities which make me loose sleep and concentration daily, or scrape much but not all of the dental carie, etch, prime, and build composite fillings on my own?
