Has anyone ever had this
The tooth behind my top left k-9 is cracked right down the middle, and one side is loose. I have had a problem with this tooth for quite some time, but never had the money or time to take care of it. It started about 3 years ago with a cavity, and it just ate its way on down, then I needed a root canal. So still, I let it go because I dont have the money to get it fixed. Now, well this past friday, I was chewing gum and the thing split right down the middle. It doesnt hurt, but at times, its sensitive. The one half is very loose and I wonder if I were to pull it would it effect me in any way or become infected? What can I do I do have insurance, but paying the remainder is going to be a problem. I dont know what to do. I just want to know has anyone ever had this problem, and what was the outcome? I feel that I will need to have it extracted, and if that is the case I do want an implant.
