I am feeling very sorry for myself!
Last year one of my back molars cracked a little. This summer, probably because Trump is making me grind my teeth in my sleep, a bigger chunk broke out. So the Dentist got it ready for a crown ($1600). But when it came time to put the permanent crown on it HURT when I bit down.
So I had to go see an endodontist ($300). The endodontist took pictures and tapped my teeth and then put cold on my tooth and it hurt SO MUCH. So very much. And it didn’t stop hurting. (On the other teeth that weren’t having problems it hurt a little and then stopped hurting as soon as he took the cold off.) He said that it was irreversible damage because if it had been reversible, it would have fixed itself already given how long it took to get the appointment from when they put the temporary crown on.
So now I’m getting a root canal ($1300) before I can get my permanent crown back on.
