Broken tooth, no dental insurance
Hello everyone. I have a broken tooth. It's one of the bigger, middle ones, on the bottom. It doesn't hurt, but it looks bad cause it's all black and stuff. I don't know what to do. I've never been to a dentist before. I've always had crooked teeth so I never really paid any attention to dental care. I didn't see this problem coming because, although my teeth are crooked, I do brush them and the tooth in question didn't look odd. I knew I had some cavities but I thought if I brushed they wouldn't get worse, guess I was wrong.
Anyway. I have so many questions. I am a college student and don't have a job. I am 24 so I doubt I can get on my mom's dental insurance. What do I do? I know when I go to the dentist, they are going to find more problems. How can I pay to have all this dental work done? Cause I know it's going to be alot.
Should I find a reputable dentist in my town and go in and ask them? Does anyone know of any dental plans/insurance for students? Will I be able to get dental insurance if I have bad teeth? Is there a waiting period for insurance?
Any links to good info would be appreciated.
