Unhappy I need to get a tooth pulled but I don't have the money. Any ideas?

One of my teeth needs to be pulled. I can't even sleep right now because I am in so much pain. It's going to cost at least $140 but I don't have any money right now. I won't have any money until the beginning of June. Do you have any ideas?

You will need an antibiotic because its probably infected..if u go to the er they will give u an antibiotic and pain meds then u could probably wait til June to get it pulled because the infection is causing the pain..once infection is gone it will be better.....good luck hun

Have you looked into the dental schools? They have dental clinics that are much reduced and sometimes free.

if your near a dental school they can help most have programs, if not my human nurse found a free clinic it's a hit or miss one but they do all they can in one day they are all volunteers from the dental community god bless paula

Try calling your Heath dept , also if you go to the Er they will give you pain med and antibiotic , the antibiotic you can get free I think in walmart or Riteaid . I know that pain . Praying you get some relief .

Best place to start honestly is the emergency room or health department for one of their free clinics. If you do have a normal dentist call him and let him know you feel it is infected and under a lot of pain. In our experience if they are made aware you don't have the money to come in at that very moment but know you need antibiotics before they can touch you anyway, they will call you in scripts. That way when you can get in they know they can work on it instead of waiting another so many days or weeks before they can do anything anyway.

Either way being a cousin of a Dentist I cannot stress enough how big of a deal it is if your in pain to go or call someone right away! An infected tooth can and if left long enough will make you ill in many other ways then just in your mouth and go throughout your system. Not to scare you but have heard and seen this many times. Salt water btw is a good place to go as a rinse even during treatment for infection or Listerine. If your like me its smells like a med. cabinet however, it has antibiotic like ingredients in it to help keep things from spreading.

Lord lead this man to a dentist free of charge or to a pharmacy that will give him low priced antibiotics. thanks Lord, in Jesus's name, amen. I WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU NEED TO BE ON AMOXICILLIN OR AMPICILLIN. It is not that expensive. You should start with that. TEETH INFECTIONS ARE NOT A GOOD THING . Also.you need a dentist. God bless you, John B.
