Ok... so I noticed a few days ago that the tooth all the way in the back on my left side, might have grew in weird. It hurts when it's touched by food/my tounge on that side. I looked in the mirror and it does look like a piece might be digging in. Will I need to get this tooth pulled? And I'll admit I've never been to the dentist before since I don't exactly like them that much. One of my teeth *the one in front of the one that grew in wrong apparently* has a crack in it. If I go to the dentist, I'm afraid that they'll want to do all kinds of other stuff to my teeth, other than what I came for =/
And what will happen when and if I do need to go?
Any advice/input on this... because I'm a bit scared...
Go to the dentist now. Things can only get worse if you put it off.
You don't need to be scared. Most dentists are modern and utilize drugs and procedures that minimize pain to the point that you don't even know your teeth were worked on except for a little soreness for a day or two. It's all extremely tolerable.
Simply a Rose to brighten your day,
And maybe lessen the cares in your way;
And also, too, to help you to know,
That in knowing you, many others grow!
I dont know how old you are, but if it's a tooth right at the back it could be part of your wisdom teeth. If it hasnt grown right, it will mess up all your teeth (and then braces are painful and expensive). In addition, if your tooth has a crack in it it needs to be fixed or it could get worse and then you'll have to replace the whole tooth (again more expensive then fixing it). Go see a dentist before it becomes worse and more expensive!
Well I'm 17 and we have REALLY good insurance... braces are covered *if I really needed them I could even get the invisable kind if I wanted to* so I guess it's not THAT bad... if it keeps up I think I'll have my mom make me an appointment. Thanks everyone!
