Toothache Leads to One Extraction and an Implant

I woke up in the middle of the night not long ago in a lot of pain. I had never had a toothache like this before, and there was nothing I could do other than take some pain medication for it since there are no dentists open at that hour. I knew I would never be able to get back to sleep, so I went online to see if there was a dentist in Aurora that was cose to me and also would be open soon. I was able to find one dentist who was able to see me that morning once they were open, and I got over there pretty quick.

I am not one to really enjoy going to the dentist, but this was the worst toothache ever, and I just wanted to get some relief. I knew that the dentist would be able to numb it so I would not feel anything, and that is exactly what happened not long after I walked through the front door. The bad news is that the tooth was rotten inside, and it would be extremely expensive to try and save it. I was told that even if we tried, there was a chance that I would still lose it.

My other alternative was to go ahead and have it pulled, and then she could do an implant there for me. That is the route I decided to go, and thankfully my insurance did cover a good bit of it so it was not even very much for me, moneywise. I was worried that people would be able to tell that it was not my real tooth, but it is impossible to tell that. It looks real, it feels real, and no one knows any different. I am going to start going to this dentist on a regular basis too so I don’t have any more surprises like this!
