  • Go to the ER and ask them what to do. They will probably pull your tooth out. I feel for you. hugs. Try to buy Teetha. And loads of painkiller. And go to the ER ASAP.

  • You poor thing, you need to take those babies out of there!!! Sounds like you have an infection also, this affects your breastfeeding if you do. If you go to the er, they will send you to a dentist, give it a try.

  • Go to the ER, if they can't pull them they can point you in the direction of someone that can with no insurance. Your looking at around 1000 bucks. We also had to pay 1/2 up front. My insurance covered ONE dang tooth, they suck at dental but are great with everything else. An infection in your mouth can be deadly!
