It had been giving me a problem since last fall. Cracked it on New Years Day and a piece broke off. They said they could save it but finances dictated that it be removed. Rear molar. Besides....if I can afford a crown then my AR would have already been complete.......lolAh yes that warm fuzzy feeling..Vicodin is a great pain aid. Just be mindful of the effects. Did you loose the whole tooth or just part?
