please give me advice... going crazy!

Hello, I went thought lots in the past with dental work. RootCT and
crowns. Most ended up not working so went and got my teeth pulled. I was only 27 then.
Now i have a upper partial cuz 2 of my teeth are missing on each side. I'm 30 now.
I just found out I have a small crack in my tooth.
It hurts when I bite on it with hard food.
As i posted b4 my Dr wants to wait it out about 2 weeks. I was planning on going on a Vacation soon. I don't want to wait. I told him but he said to wait.
SO, I made an appt to going to a new Dr next week BUT my old feelings came back about crowns and RCT! The what if's. I have INS now but Scared that I Get a crown and not working out and ends up having a root canal and that not working out the last time!
I'm thinking I'll saving my $ and go get it pulled. I rather do that than to go through the drama I went through. DO people do this? My daughter's going to need braces too so $'s tight.
My ? is people who doesn't have much $ or don't want to spend the $ do this? I know lots of Dr's want to keep the tooth but I'm the one's who's paying for this.
I mean I maxed out my credit card Few years ago and i have nothing to show for and i don't want to end up like b4. If i get it pulled at my oral surgerons HOW can I face my Dr? See the cycle?
Going out of my mind.
please any advice Or your story will help.

Re: please give me advice... going crazy!

Im new to this board..but how do crowns turn into root canals? I recently had a crown and I am thinking of going to a cosmetic dentist and having him redo it b/c I can taste the metal from the crown the dentist put in...would I be at risk of a root canal?

Hi I think what you're tasting is the post or the bottom part of the crown. When I had my new one years ago I had that. BUT sometimes when u have an infection u taste metal type taste in your mouth also. do u have any pain? if not I wouldn't worry about it .

No pain..but my bite is different and Im not fond of the color..he made it way too white..looks like a white blob in the back of my mouth. Im just concerned b/c I have had braces twice and jaw surgery to make my bite fit..and finally it did..now its off due to the crown..Im wishing I went to a cosmetic dentist b/c they do better molds and can make the crown exactly the same size as your tooth. Does the metal taste go away? Its annoying..like the metal of a fork in my mouth.

U said you just got the crown right? It will go away. I think your mouth has to get used to it.
When u close your mouth do u feel the metal taste?
I used to feel that cuz i had silver filling on my bottom teeth.
If you're not happy you should call your Dr and tell him.
