Unhappy Part of my teeth is gone!?

I looked in the mirror today to begin brushing my teeth and they were dark next to the gumline and part of one of my teeth was gone! I especially noticed this when I was flossing. My teeth, recently have been more sensitive than normal to cold only. Am I losing my teeth?! Are they decaying? This is not normal! They don't hurt, I feel normal, but have to chew anything a little less aggressively because it feels like it might hurt if I bite hard. What is wrong?! I do not have health insurance--my insurance stopped that part of the health coverage. Please help.

Re: Part of my teeth is gone!?

It could be alot of things.
It could be you have a cavity hitting the nerve of the tooth.
It could be you need a root canal.
The only way to find out is to get an xray.
Also you should get your teeth cleaned once a year.
Thats good for getting rid of tartar and plaque on the teeth which leads to cavities.
Just call up dentists in your area and find the cheapest one that gives an xray.
You definitely need a xray.
