Unhappy in pain

i don't have dental insurance and i do have a debtal discount plan which is good.But i had to have the rootcanal done this week and pay $731 and i can't afford it.Anyway i always get pan on my right side,it starts in the tooth,then my whole jaw starts hurting and then my whole right side of the head,it goes down to my neck and back.I take some advil but the pain is still there.The rootcanal specialist numbed the pain in my ear with injection,felt good but it only lasted for few hours.I don't know what to do.this is driving me crazy.I'm moving on monday from La to Minneapolis and need to find a new dentist.What should i do?if anyone had a rootcanal done and the cost please let me know.

Hugs Jenna

Hi,

I'm in L.A. as well. I don't know anything about your age or health....but root canals are controversial..in that they don't generally get all of the infection out of the tubules of the tooth. It's up to your immune system to deal with it.

The other choice is taking out the tooth...and replacing. I know, neither choice is fun. YOu may want to look at a site called altcorp.com or the book:
The Root Canal Coverup, written by a retired root canal specialist.
