It happened late Sat. night. I just had the root canal done on Dec. 15 and he told me I should be thinking about have a crown put on it. It's a big molar with a lot of filling. I just wanted to get through the holidays. I knew neither the crown or Christmas was going to be cheap. I opted for Christmas. I called yesterday morning first thing and she got me in this morning at 8. He was really surprised that it broke off this quickly. I told him, "I didn't even eat peanut brittle; I was eating a cookie with peanut butter chips in it." He did say that it was the best kind of break possible. It was the inside half (front to back) and it broke off smooth at the gumline and it left the filling he had put in on the 15th. He put in two pins and put on a temporary crown. I was done and out by 9. I will have the permanent crown put on Jan. 12, my second day of school. Thankfully he's in the office that afternoon and can get me in at 4:30. I won't have to miss any school. That will be my first day for 3 of my classes so hopefully there won't be a ton of homework handed out. The one good thing about losing my job is that I took out my own health insurance and put dental on it for myself and my son.
Then after I got done at the dentist I went to the car dealership and scheduled an oil change for my car, which is at least 800 miles past due. I wanted to wait until I was done with school. My car has basically been sitting idle since school finished as DH always wants to take his truck if we go somewhere. I'm also having them check the brakes. The ABS system is acting weird and my breaks lock up and I slide to a stop at almost every intersection. Not happy with that at all! The auto. tech. students just put in the new rotars and calipers but it was doing this before they ever touched my car. I didn't mention it to Todd because I thought it was part of the bad rotar issue. I can't imagine what tom. will cost!
everything happens at once. and everything costs so much to get repaired or fixed. i wish you the best in this hassle. i know how hard it is to cover all your expenses without going deeper into debt.
Well CRAP is right.
This same thing happened to me. I got my tooth filled last month and 2 weeks later half of my tooth broke off. I'm hoping it can be saved. The tooth broke front to back and the filling is still in. I didn't have a crown on it before.. My dentist is out of town this week so I go next Wed. to the dentist.
Knickknack, If you didn't have a root canal done before you probably will now. I had the root canal done and the dull ache that I've had for months was finally gone. I didn't even chew on that side because it ached. Lady dentist gave me antibiotics and the ache went away but then came back. He said that should have told them I needed a root canal. They said it will only take a 1/2 hr. to attach the crown. They drilled into the remaining tooth and put two posts in and some porcelaine support around them to resemble tooth and then created a temporary crown. It's amazing what they can do these days.
I don't have any pain with this tooth. The filling fell out last yr. and it didn't hurt then either. I went for a week or two until I could get an appointment with my dentist. I just hate the fact that I paid for the filling and it was only in a few weeks. UGH ! Not her fault though. Although it has been filled twice in the past yr. I sure hope it can be saved since it isn't giving me fits. I just want a filling to stay in that tooth. Or now I should say half a tooth LOL !
I had a tooth some yrs. ago that had to have posts put in and the tooth built up. It was fine after that. But that tooth wasn't a root canal either. Dental work is so expensive. If I had one wish it would be to have nice pretty straight teeth. I would have to win the Lottery to get that wish.
