I somehow chipped my front left tooth. I went to the dentist hoping that they could fix it. They told me that I could have it pulled out but I didn't want to do that because it is a front tooth. I felt so embarrassed, but they told me that It needed a root canal. but my insurance did not cover it. So I went home and researched it and came across this site that under this program called the health safety net where they do services that insurance don't cover. So the hsn. will do the root canal free to me under this program. I was able to find a dentist close to me that would do it. So I made an appointment to have my tooth looked at and then they scheduled the appointment for a month later. So April 27th I will have it fixed. But 3 days ago I started to feel severe pain in my broken tooth. It's a sharp, sensitive piercing feeling. It's very painful. So the tooth must of chipped more an now the nerve is exposed. I called the dentist to try get a sooner appointment but said the dentist doing the procedure is coming in on that day. So they just sent two prescriptions to the pharmacy. One is amoxicillin for antibiotic in the second is ibuprofen. I was a lil mad cus I been taking ibuprofen already an its not working. They said to take it every four hours. I kind of wanted a couple Percocet for the pain. I still have about 12 more days to go. I don't kno if taking the ibuprofen more often will help. I kno the antibiotic will, but this pain is unbearable and kills. I didn't see anything in the home remedy that I would try. Just one that there's an oral kit at Walgreen's but don't kno if it'll help my broken front tooth. I heard that the air hitting the nerve makes it so painful. I believe that's very true. I'm hoping I can get pain meds ASAP! I'm going to go to Walgreen's tomorrow to see if I can find anything that will help???
