Dental health care, abscessed tooth

Saturday, Apr. 27th 2024 8:13 AM

I have an abscessed tooth that is just killing me. There is no way I can have a root canal because they want $1500.00 plus the crown cost, and there is no possible way I can afford that. I would like to know if I go to the dentist to get the tooth pulled. Will it affect my other teeth all that much? The tooth I want to pull is in the back. 

Reply: It’s essential to seek immediate treatment for an abscessed tooth to prevent further complications and protect your oral health. With that said if you decide to have the tooth pulled, it shouldn’t affect your other teeth significantly, especially if the tooth is located in the back. However, it’s always best to discuss your concerns with your dentist and ask any questions you may have about the procedure. A dentist can also provide you with options for affordable dental care that fit within your budget.

You may want to find a dentist that will provide the correct dental services to save the tooth but offers a payment plan option. Another option would be looking into buying dental insurance. I suggest reviewing HMO insurance plans as they typically do not have waiting periods for the services you will be needing. Dental insurance will help make cost of dental care much more affordable.
