Were you in pain before the crown was replaced? With so many questions to be answered, it's best you have the tooth re-evaluated by your dentist. ...Read more

I recently had a root canal, but am unable to afford the crown. How long do I have until i loose the tooth? My root canal was at the end of feb. I had a temporary filling, but my insurance ran out before i could pay for the crown.

I recently had a root canal, but am unable to afford the crown. How long do I have until i loose the tooth? My root canal was at the end of feb. I had a temporary filling, but my insurance ran out before i could pay for the crown.

That : That would depend on which tooth it was, the condition of the tooth itself, and your bite. A tooth that is in the front of the mouth that does not contact any teeth when you bite could last many years without a crown. A tooth in the back of the mouth like a molar that you bite against and had a large cavity and/or multiple fillings in it prior to having root can break in a few weeks. You need to see your dentist and talk to him or her about your situation. If the tooth is vulnerable, you may be able to have a temporary crown made to protect the tooth for several months until you can afford the permanent crown. ...Read more
