Alrite i have a hole in my molar and its pretty big. I know i need to go to a dentist. But i havent been in a year because its diffucult to get my parents to make an appointment and Keep to it.
I really need a filling in this tooth but i can't bring my self to the dentist. Is there anything i can buy from walmart or Cvs that will work for the mean time till i can fight my parents to bring me to one?
Now, if you want to have a root canal - which is so painful, be my guest. Cause soon, when you start chewing and if it hurts, you have a root canal. Its a painful experience, I never want to go threw again. You decide.
Also, my 6 cavities weren't cheap at all and neither was my root canal.
So, Please force your parents to make you an appt. You don't wanna go threw what I had to go threw!

Don't put it on till your fixing to go to bed, that way you want be inclined to eat, drink or smoke, to give it time to harden. Once it's on the tooth, I dont think it will just come off, I've had mine on for 2 weeks now and it hasn't budged. You can take it out anytime you want too so don't worry about the dentist not being able to remove this stuff when the time comes for you to really get it filled.

There is stuff to use that will repare a current filling but you can't use it since you need a filling to fix in the first place. And if it's enough to where you actually have a hole in your tooth then it's serious and you need to get to a dentist ASAP.
But obviously, you know that but your parents won't take you. Try showing them your tooth and see what they say about it. If you leave it the way it is for too long, you'll up having to get a tooth canal with can be very pricey. Maybe even loose the tooth.
Tell them the longer they wait to get it fixed, the more it's going to cost them and the more pain it will cause you.
If they are too busy to go to the appointment and stay with you, they can drop you off, sign you in with whoever is at the front desk and they don't have to stay for when you actually see the doctor. But, two appointments during the year to keep you teeth healthy isn't that much time so why is it that they can't take you?
