I can't afford a root canal, what do I do?
At my last dental appointment (before my insurance ran out), the dentist discovered some weird abnormality that he’s never seen before… pretty much my nerve has grown up into my crown and the tooth is all diseased and the nerve is exposed. He drilled into it, it started bleeding too much so he put a temporary filling in and said I’ll need a root canal. I cannot afford a root canal, they priced it out as over $1000 as it is very complicated. Now I am in a lot of pain. Is it dangerous to leave it like this?
