No, not on this site. You may be able to do so on the paid Concierge site. But viewing your x-ray is not then equivalent of a thorough examination. If your Dentist cannot see you before the n9th, seek alternative treatment. No matter what we tell you about your condition, you need to see a Dentist now.

That's not how it works. You can only do more harm. Broken, and probably infected, tooth will not heal itself, and an improperly administered pain killer will not help it heal. You need immediate professional care, this isn't a DIY project. Please see a Dentist for appropriate care.

Sorry. This isn an informational site to help people understand health related issues.It is not an insurance nclearingnhousr. As every plan is different, you will have to contact your insurance carrier directly, or check in with your treating Dentist to do an insurance assessment for you.
