Is this the only way to get in there obvious they cant get in from the top. Univ of Iowa Top faculty fixed botched cosmetic job on 23 and 24 done in Florida but dentists who was not honest or lets say forcoming about possible medical issues or proecedure of ill advised cosmetics correction as too large.
