So sorry to hear of the trouble!

Many times by biting less hard on the involved tooth, the pain or associated discomfort will subside, at least in part. If your root canal tooth possibly is hitting high, it "may" merely need to be adjusted to not be so high. Your Dentist would need to be seen to adjust this.

I'm thinking that you understandably have Insurance situation/s where Insurance won't kick in till January? If so, sometimes when you make a 10 minute appointment with your Dental office, you may want to express the Insurance concern with them. Also, with your Dentist when you see him or her. Because often, they can "work with you" with regard to avoiding any costly expenses now, and still likely adjust your bite, and/or find out why & what is wrong.

________________________________

So to summarize: I'd suggest, if you can to see your preferred Dentist for a quick appointment. I'd explain up front your (very important) "financial" concerns, asking or inferring that they can hopefully work with you. Hopefully it may well be merely a high tooth/filling/crown, etc., that is making your tooth so sore. But if not, they may be able to tell quickly what is wrong, and help you to avoid sleepless nights and what not, all while the Dental personnel are being cognizant of your financial concerns. Does this make sense?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
