My bottom left wisdom tooth is decayed and mostly gone. There is a large hole deep into my gums. The pain is immense. The taste is awful. The smell is worse. There is corrosion starting to spread to some of the other teeth in the area. The wisdom tooth has been rotting for years but I have never had health insurance. A month and a half ago I went to an appointment at the Madison County Health Center. I was referred to an oral surgeon in Noblesville. I was told it would cost me over $4000. I don't have that kind of money nor do I have the means to acquire it. I need the tooth removed but if I can not accomplish this soon then I need to know the health risks I am facing. As of late the pain in my head, neck, and at times my chest has been increasing in frequency and has become more painful. Is my life at risk? Is my sanity at risk? are there other concerns? Thank you.
