Ok, so forgive me for not first searching through other posts to see if this topic has already been covered because I'm at work and didn't have time, but I have a tooth in the back of my mouth (I think it's a molar) that had a filling fall out of it about two years ago. At the time, I saw a dentist that suggested I get a root canal, but I'd rather it be pulled out than go through all that mess and pain. I wasn't able to have that done because insurance changed, so my tooth has just been chilling around my mouth with a huge hole in the middle. It bothers me from time to time, food gets stuck there that I have to pick out *sorry for the grossness!* and its sensitive to chew on that side. Recently, when I brush my teeth *I use a vibrating toothbrush and I don't brush hard*, some of my teeth bleed, including this molar. Is it possible, and how long would it take for this tooth to just die and come loose? I don't drink, smoke, etc.. Lastly, I also feel this tooth is what's causing my bad breath despite brushing my teeth twice a day. Help?
