to see my dentist.
A cracked #14 was confirmed by
x-rays, as was decay in the root. I looked at the x-rays, which meant
nothing to me, as Dr. Gregory explained what needed to happen. There
would be root canal by an Endodontist, followed by a new crown.
Then we talked about money and
the approximate cost for everything that needed to be done.
