I have a wisdom tooth that is in really bad shape. Not only is it decayed, but the teeth around it are starting to be infected. Now the area from my left cheekbone up to my eyebrow is bothering me. Is there something I can do until I can afford a dentist or do I need to go to a ER?
This isn’t something to mess around with. I know you’re finances aren’t where you’d like them to be, but you need to take this seriously. When a tooth infection gets bad enough it can spread to your brain.
You need to have this tooth extracted. Call around to dentists in your area. You could even do a web search for an “affordable dentist“. There are dentists who will work out a payment plan for you if you explain your situation to them.
