OMG. Like 2 months ago, maybe even more, my husband broke his tooth in half. Thanks to issues with our dental insurance he was just able to have something done about it this week, so of course by now the whole tooth is dead. He went in a few days ago for an evaluation and xrays, all was good and set for him to have the surgery today. Well it turns out that they pulled the wrong freaking tooth!!!!!! REALLY?!?! They had the xrays and everything! Its a tooth, once its gone, its gone! I have no idea what they're doing now, he's still at the office. I'm so upset about this, what do you think we should do?!

Pull the correct tooth and replace the missing tooth with a crown.

They need to give him a tooth replacement at their own cost.

You have to have a tooth to have a crown placed. He will need an implant.

This and implants are expensive but the dentist should cover it since it was their mistake.

I know, I feel so bad for him. He's been in pain for 2 whole months, and now this. They better, I can't wait to talk to him to find out what they're going to do/ what they did.

I feel so bad for him. I sure hope they do :( Wonder if they'll do it right away or if he'll have to wait

I feel like the Dentist should have to pay for it to be fixed, but I'm not sure I would be ok with him doing it himself.

My SO is a dentist and he would fix it ASAP.
