I've been to hics and from hics to my dentist! At the dentist they took xrays and came to the conclusion I need a root canal!My other option is pull the tooth! Normally I'd say "go ahead and pull it" but I've had too many teeth pulled from that quadrant I don't know if I should have another pulled! To have the root canal done I'd be paying out of my own pocked for! Mass health don't pay for root canals!
