My dentist screwed up a tooth filling and now my tooth is rotten from the inside, down to the jaw. And she tells me that the only way to fix this is by getting two root canals (since it is a molar). Isn't that lovely? =]

But I don't have the money for root canals... if I did, I'd use it to sue her first.

I feel your pain.

A similar thing happened to me, I told my dentist that my tooth hurt like hell, but every dentist I went to (I went to like, eight) told me that it was just another tooth coming up really late and I was a wuss for being so whiny about teething. I insisted it was the tooth that hurt and my gums weren't sore.

Three months later, the pain is back and it turns out that tooth had rotted so badly from being untreated that I needed a root canal. Though money wasn't a problems since, free healthcare, woop woop.

Try a dental school. [link] It's usually cheaper than a private dental practice.

I know it doesn't cost them that much to manufacture it, but it is a drug specific to a particular condition and not very commonly prescribed. It's actually just as expensive as some medical procedures. :stare:

My root canal was from $650-$800 and no dental insurance. Keep looking for a cheaper one and a good one.

Have you looked for low income dentistry in your area? One of my friends got something like $4000 of work done for free by a local charity.

There is also at least one oral surgeon nearby that will take whatever minimum payment you can make a month toward their service to you. Yeah, it's still a lot of money, but at least it's spread out.

I had bad teeth for years, when I was 17 my wisdom teeth were supposed to come out but my mother was pissed at me at the time for working at a retail job to make money (because it's just not RIGHT for an Artist to have one of 'those' jobs, apparently being able to draw makes me SOOOO much better than everybody else. Sometimes growing up in a family of professional artists is annoying) and dropped me from family insurance.

My wisdom teeth were rotting out, literally. ALL my teeth hurt all the time and I had constant head and jaw aches.

It took 15 years for me to get insurance again and get my teeth taken care of.

You want to get a giant abscess that will eat away at your bone until you have a massive puss filled hole that will cause your other teeth to fall out, give you horrible breath, and slowly poison you to death?

Suit yourself.

I dislike the dentist very much, but then I remember my ultimate fear of getting cancer of the mouth, which is just fucking nasty.
And suddenly getting prodded in the mouth twice a year for a hefty sum doesn't seem so bad.

yeah, I know not going to the dentist doesn't guarantee oral cancer in the same way smoking doesn't guarantee lung cancer, but the human mouth is disgusting and I'd just rather do all I can to avoid having to with anything gruesome if at all possible.

You both are going about this all wrong. I suggest a string tied to an arrow, fired from a heavy-duty hunting bow :la: If you're feeling overly rambunctious, substitute an RPG for the bow and arrow.

With no insurance, that's a normal price for a root canal. It's an expensive procedure. :shrug: Would you rather the infection spread to other parts of your body, furthering your need for medical assistance with no insurance? :roll:
