What would you do? (dental question)

I have a tooth that really hurts. I get dental care for free from the tribal health clinic because I am 1/4 Native American. Which is good because the only insurance I have doesn't cover dental work. But anyway I have this one tooth that has been hurting on and off for months. The dentist was ignoring it and I kept forgetting to ask about it because when I would go in it would be fine. Finally I went there as a walk in when the pain was bad and they took an x-ray and told me there was nothing wrong with the tooth. Well, if its hurting me there is something wrong, plain and simple. On the other hand the care I am getting is free so I don't want to piss the guy off. I am thinking of going to another clinic tomorrow but even if they can find the problem the only thing my insurance will cover is extraction.

  • Go to a different doc that offers a free initial consult and x-rays. They will tell you what is wrong with the tooth and you can proceed from there.
