Well, I got that tooth filled by a new dentist because old one retired due to health problems. Anyway the filling fell out on the July fourth holiday. Wonderful. I had to wait 6 days to get in and he started the root canal process, that was the middle of July and now it is September 15, 2014. I have to go tomorrow to finish. My tooth hurts terribly. I have no insurance, I can’t really get it pulled because it’s one of the front ones and will never be able to smile again.
