Random quote: "The real meaning of the crucifixion lies in the APPARENT intensity of the assault of some of the Sons of God upon another. This, of course, is impossible, and must be fully understood AS an impossibility. In fact, unless it IS fully understood as only that, I cannot serve as a real model for learning." Jesus CIM

A filling came out of my tooth while I was brushing my teeth this morning. I can't afford to go to a dentist for a few months — what should I do to maintain the best health until then?

When a filling is lost, it is critical to see a dentist as soon as possible. There are several reasons for immediate concern, including:

1. Existing or new decay, which will eat away tooth structure. dte-d1

2. Root canal problem can result, causing the need for more treatment and expense.

3. Pain.

4. Aesthetic issues.

Try to see your regular dentist, but because finances are a concern, you can visit either an emergency room that has a dental facility or a dental school, where fees are much lower.

Emergency dentistry would entail placing a secure temporary material in the cavity; this would reduce the risk of future problems while you save money for a permanent filling. The small amount you will spend on emergency care will go a long way toward reducing potential future costs and severity of problems.
