I have been experiencing a sharp pain in the upper right corner off my mouth..Its the tooth right before the last one in the upper right corner...It started about 2 days ago. Im not sure if I need to have the tooth removed...if its a bad cavity or worse...I do not have health insurance. What should I do?

  • Most probably the pain is because of decayed tooth. When the decay is deep and the tooth gets infected one experiences sharp pain. Only X-ray and the clinical examination can tell whether the tooth in quesation can be saved or it has to be pulled out. Normally such teeth can be saed by getting the root canal treatment and getting the crown above it. But this treatment comes out to be very expesive if you do not have the insurance. You can go to some dental school where the treatment will be comparatively cheap. if you want to know more about the root canal treatment like when and how it is done then you can visit the following link on our website..........http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-root-canal-therapy-17.aspx
