I just now came across your thread. Did you go to the dentist and find out more about what's going on?
Teeth and jaws are so individual. For example, I cracked a molar root when I was only 38; dentist said the root could be repaired, and referred me to an endodontist; endodontist advised extraction and implant. My husband had a successful implant done by the same endodontist, so, I went ahead and had the extraction. I wish I had gone for the root repair, and saved my tooth! When I went in for the implant, lo and behold, suddenly "You don't have enough jawbone to support an implant; we're going to have to give you a bridge." So two perfectly good teeth were destroyed, and I have a bridge which I hate, and which will eventually fail and have to be replaced by a denture.
The moral? Get several opinions! And if you're a woman, your jawbone may not be as sturdy as a man's, so don't judge what's right for you, by what worked for a man.
