I have a cavity in the back on my right side. I have been told that I'd need a root canal to fix that tooth, but because of the cost, my mom made me wait. It's been 2 years!! It hurts.!! Also, recently my jaw's been locking on that same side.. And there's a pain in my neck right below my tooth... I just need help!! Ibuprofen doesn't really seem to work, except for a few minutes.. Any suggestions?? Also, I'd like to know.. Is it safe to just get that tooth pulled? Also what's going on in my neck?? Would pulling it make the pain STOP?! Thanks.
