It is one my top molars, the front one, and I am SICK of it. I have spent so much money on this darn tooth. It has a crown, which I've had for nearly a year, but now its acting up again. They told me root canal or extraction.
I dont trust a root canal going right. Nothing else on this tooth does! And, its expensive and i have no dental insurance.
Tommorrow I'm calling up my dentist and seeing if they will just take it out.
I dont CARE about my other teeth shifting. When I have money I will get a bridge or implant.
My question is, will it be hard to take out the tooth since its a crown. i mean, they will take the crown off but how will they get the 'real' tooth out sinc the real tooth has been filed down to nothing?
Thanks, Im going to see if they can take it out tommorrow.
I feel too young to be losing my teeth (i am only 24 and have lost 2 molars due to extraction) but i guess i am paying for the sins of my youth (my parents never took me to the dentist...i guess its their fault....)
I am feeling so sorry for myself today.
Every time I ask someone they say "you are too young to have dental problems!"
I wish I were rich or better yet had dental insurance as a kid!
The dentist can just cut the crown off first, then pull your tooth. You said that it's a front tooth. You might want to reconsider about getting a root canal as that could save your tooth so you have a chewing surface. What ever you decide I hope your ordeal ends soon.
