I've made regular trips to my dentist since I was in my 20s and apart from a few fillings had few problems. When I was into my 50's started losing my top ones until I eventually had the last few removed and a full top set. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and it seems it's possibly a side effect. Now I started losing my bottom ones a few years ago and by March this year had constant infections in a couple of lower ones and had to have 2 of them out. Unfortunately one was right in the middle and now I have a gap right at the front. My dentist refuses to see me until my next appointment in July to get fitted for a bottom set. I feel so self conscious as I have only 6 left and a gap in the middle. Has anyone else had the same wait for theirs? I don't recall having to wait that long for my top ones.
