I haven't been to the dentist, besides only going in a year and a half ago to get an extraction, in 12 years. Like a couple weeks ago my gum around one of my lower teeth got swollen and really tender and I noticed a pimple like thing on it. Well I popped it and now when I put pressure on it a tiny drop of pus comes out. I am one of the people who immediately look up my symptoms and think the worst. I can't handle the fear anymore so I made a dentist appointment for today. I woke up feeling nervous, can't eat and have been crying on and off all day because of the unknown. I don't have insurance so I am afraid I will need a root canal to save the tooth and I can't afford that! My tooth doesn't show a cavity so this all just came out of nowhere for me!
