Dentists Galore

Just got home from my main dentist. The part of the tooth where the break was located went down close to the nerve, so he said, because of that, he COULD try extra filling, or a crown, but being so close to the nerve, either fix could last a day or it could last 10 years. He couldn't guarantee either long term, and said he hates to see people waste their money (yes, he's an HONEST dentist). He also mentioned root canal (WAY too expensive), or just having the tooth extracted. Being without significant cash, I opted for the cheapest way... the extraction.

However, since the roots of the tooth are fairly deep, Dr. Hughes didn't want to remove the tooth himself, since he's just "general dentistry", so he referred me to Dr. Bradford on Forsythe Avenue. He called ahead, gave me my x-ray and a note for Bradford. At Bradford's, they took another x-ray (digital). Bradford looked at it, said he can remove it tomorrow morning at 10:00am. Bradford wrote a couple prescriptions, one an antibiotic, one a pain medicine, and told me to get them filled today and bring them with me tomorrow, so I can start taking them immediately after the extraction.

This is where things currently stand. Bradford asked had I considered an implant, but ain't nobody got the money fo' dat!
