Post or crown or something else?

My partner (28 years old) had, on the same upper back-ish tooth, two failed root canals followed by a tooth extraction. They're still waiting for the extraction to heal. But they told us that a post is impossible since his bone is too thin. I hear a crown requires root canalling neighboring teeth, which we really don't want. Can we just leave it as is without teeth shifting significantly? Is there another option that doesn't requiring destroying MORE teeth? [more inside]

Front passenger speaker and window switch broke but power lock didnt

The front passenger speaker and window control stopped working on my Ford Crown Victoria. The front passenger power lock switch is working fine. The window itself works normally and I can lower it from the driver side control panel. I had to take the whole dashboard apart earlier to replace a heater core so I unplugged a lot of wires. What did I miss when putting it back together? Where do I look?

Did My Dentist Screw Up My Crown?

A rear molar (#30 for you dental fans) had a chip missing but was otherwise asymptomatic but my dentist recommended a gold crown before the tooth broke and caused greater problems. I followed his advise and while wearing the temporary crown I noticed a new, distinct and very painful sensitivity to cold. He dismissed it as a fluke and installed the permanent crown, but the sensitivity remains and now I can't eat anything frozen without agony. He x-rayed the tooth and found no structural issues, nor did he find any leaks in the seating. He claims that the problem is just routine cold sensitivity and advised aggressive fluoride, but with no prior problem isn't it more likely that he screwed up something and, if so, what?

radiator hose leaking after radiator replacement

I just replaced the radiator on my 2002 Ford Crown Victoria. I filled the coolant reservoir to the cold fill line. Now, if I let the car warm up for 10 minutes, coolant starts leaking out from under the upper radiator hose where it meets the radiator. The hose looks solid, and the hose clamp is on pretty tight so I assume the pressure is just getting really high. Also, if I open up the coolant reservoir cap, liquid coolant starts coming out, not steam. The coolant isn't even that hot. I can stop the radiator hose leak by reducing the amount of coolant in the reservoir, but the coolant level needs to be way way below the cold fill line for that. What is going on? What should I do?

Papa Needs a Brand New Crown

Dental filter: I just visited a dentist who told me that I chipped one of my molars and that I'd need a crown for it. He said that since I'm not really having pain associated with it (it's a little sensitive, but that's it) I don't need to have a root canal. Is getting a crown instead of a root canal wise?

Is this crown necessary?

My girlfriend's dentist is pushing her to get a crown on a tooth with several fillings. I'm skeptical because she has no pain, he doesn't see anything wrong with it, and he pushed her last year too.

Should a new crown hurt this much?

My girlfriend's crown came off one of her molars, and it was damaged. She went to a dentist who reshaped the stump, made a new crown and replaced it. Since then (3 weeks) it came off once, she's been in excruciating pain the whole time, and now the dentist says she might need a root canal. Is this bad dentistry, or to be expected, and is there any recourse? [more inside]
