FQHC or d. school: You should get checked out. Try to see if there's a dental school in your area - lots of times they have free clinics for people in your situation. Also there are entities called federally qualified health centers that are all throughout the U.S. These often provide dental services for uninsured people on a "sliding-scale" fee basis. Good luck!

Pain and price will : The longer you wait the more it cost to fix the problem. You could go from needing a filling to needing a root canal and crown. This will end up costing you much more. See your dentist for a consultation so you know your options.

Get insurance: Dental insurance can cost 10-20 dollars per month. You can buy it without buying medical health insurance. The saving are well worth it! google "dental insurance.".
