My dentist can not see me, even for an emergency until March 18th. The nearest dentist besides him who takes my insurance is 3.5 hours away and I don't own a car. #4 had a root canal started on it and then broke last year. The buccal surface is missing completely to the gumline. The lingual surface is still there. It has now become loose and wiggling, but only the lingual side. The buccal side that is there under the gumline is not loose. Is it okay if that half comes out? Am I at severe risk of infection if only half of the tooth comes out? There is no pain (besides the tooth pressing into the gum). I don't know if I should attempt to take it out or try to keep it in as long as possible.
