You have a great site here:-)
About a year ago, I hit something on my cheek,and it cracked one of my back teeth. I did not have it checked by the dentist at that time because it did not hurt at all. However, last week, it became infected with an abscess.The pain was horrible so I finally went to the dentist. He prescribed me antibiotic and painkiller. He said, I need a canal and a crown or an extraction with an implant. However, I cannot afford any of these right now. I am wondering if I can just have the tooth pulled without having an implant. If the antibiotic clears the infection, do I still need to have it pulled?
I am looking forward for your advices!
