Root Canal/Extraction/Implants

Where do I begin?????

I got a root canal done on my front tooth (a rework of an old root canal),and this has just been completed. This has maxed out my dental insurance.

In the meantime xrays have shown that I have another tooth which has another root canal that needs to be redone. This was done over 5 years ago. This tooth has had a root canal, gum regrafting (which did not work), and now is loose. Endodentist did not think it would survive a root canal, so she and my dentist recommended extraction/implant..with the hope of doing this a few years down the line.

So in an effort to try and tighten up the tooth I had been OPing with coconut oil and oil of oregano every day. I had to stop when my temp crown is on the front - I get the new crown fitted next Thursday, when I hope to begin OPing again.

I got the price of extracting the tooth today $500!!!!!!!(which I dont have) - then they start talking about extracting the next tooth, and implants and grafts etc which will cost over $9000!!!!!! There is no way I can afford this.

Meanwhile I took an ear infection, so am on Antibiotics at the moment, but dentist thinks that the infection may have spread from my tooth to my jaw!!!

Is there hope of OPing saving my tooth??????
