Half of my tooth is gone!!!

As I was eating my taquitos, I realized my mouth felt different in the back. So I felt around with my tongue and half of my tooth is gone! It is my back, right molar. I had problems with it in the past but swept it under the carpet.

BIG MISTAKE!

My dentist is closed, Western Dental is closed, and 1-800-DENTIST said every dentist in the three cities over are closed or they do not have a listing for them!


WAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!


I want to have it pulled because it has a couple sharp ends that keep stabbing my inner cheek.

Well, after tomorrow morning I will officially have one less tooth. I will join the ranks with my sisters who all are missing at least one molar. Well, needless to say, I will never look at taquitos the same! LOL

If you are able to get a crown on it I would recommend a crown. When you lose a tooth the other teeth tend to shift as years go by.

MamaBear, are they able to crown a partial tooth or would they have to build it up?

I agree to at least ask them about it and see if it's possible! Hope you get it taken care of well and soon!

I am going in first thing in the morning.

It is odd, I take my teeth for granted. Now that I have a broken tooth, it is stuck in my brain! LOL




EDITED!!!!!!

What is wrong with me and my spelling these days! I just typed took instead of tooth! LOL

ugg that sucks!

Hubby just broke a molar the other day that we had spent a fortune (and he lived through a ton of pain for) to get a triple root canal on... it was pulled last week We can't afford crowns even with our insurance.

Crowns cost more than root canals? Yikes, I didn't know that!

If I have the tooth crowned, I wonder if they will have to do a root canal. If they do, FORGET IT!!!!!

They can take it. I can't stand root canals.

I was doing some research online and I am reading that a crown can cost anywhere from $600-$1300, depending on the individual dentist and whether it is gold or porcelain. YIKES!

This site says a crown can cost as much as $3100. That is a lot of money.
I thought $1300 was a lot!
