TMJ, or Scamsville USA?

How much would my mention of the phrase 'TMJ' (a jaw disorder) to a dentist affect his decision to attribute my toothache to grinding rather than to tooth decay? I am worried that I am about to be scammed, due to the fact that (i) my aching tooth (and that tooth alone) has obvious decay, and (ii) that a new dentist was able to attribute my toothache to grinding before actually looking in my mouth.

Recommend a dentist in Denver

I'm scared to death of going to the dentist. I have a lot of problems with my teeth and gums, mostly as a result of avoiding appointments for the last few years. I am ready to face the music and make an appointment now to get my teeth fixed, but I'd like recommendations for a gentle, non-judgmental (and not too expensive?) dentist in the Denver metro area.

never trust anyone with bad teeth

I have a carny mouth. Should I get dental insurance before I decide to take care of it? No pain, but several cavities and a few teeth (including two wisdom teeth) have been rotting and falling apart for several years. 4-6 years ago, a dental school said that it would cost 4-5 thousand dollars and take 3-4 visits to fix. That doesn't include getting them whitened or anything cosmetic. Today, one of my molars broke in half and I swallowed it with some wasabi trail mix. That tooth only had a little speck of a cavity yesterday. [more inside]

How exactly will my dentist fix these cavities?

Cavities: I have one in both of my two front teeth, one of which is fairly significant. Both of them are on the outside edge of the respective teeth, and thus sandwiched between my front teeth and the teeth next to them. How will a dentist fix this? [more inside]

Seeking Encouragement About the Fate of My Teeth

Due to some psychological issues, over the last one to two years, I've brushed my teeth ... well, probably no more than ten times, total. Having somewhat exorcised whatever little demon caused this neglect, I'm now trying to work my way back to dental health; I need some encouragement that the next step isn't going to be dentures. As always, there's [more inside]
