Can't a girl EVER catch a break?

Just broke a tooth - a tooth with a crown on it, at that. No idea how much this will cost me, since it broke off BELOW the gum line. I called my dentist (don't you just love a dentist who gives out his cell phone number?) and he said he thinks it's a tooth that I had a root canal done on last year, and hopefully the root is dead. Hopefully.

I am not going to postpone my trip to NYC and the trial at MSKCC for a broken tooth. Thankfully it's not a front tooth!

No fun.
I had to have a root canal during my radiation portion of treatment. While on chemo my oncologist would not allow dental work. I had an infection too, so they kept me on antibiotics for about 7 weeks until the radiation and then let me have it taken care of.

Ugh! So sorry, but thank goodness you had root canal, or you would be in serious pain from it! I hope it's not too bad. "Below the gum" does not sound comfortable. I wish I had my dentist's cell number. I once broke a tooth while eating popcorn at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve. Not only did I have to wait a day to get an appointment, but I also could not put a claim in for the year that had just finished, and for which I had already paid the deductible.

Ummmmm Superglue?
Glad it's not bad enough to interrupt your trip. Hope the flights go out as scheduled for you.

I must say you are handling it like a champ. I'm sure if the root were alive you sure would know it by now. Good luck.

I feel like after having ovca, we should get a break. Last week I caught a cold and I joked, I had ovca, I have to get a cold now.

"It is always somethin'!" I just had one of mine break too. I have been to the dentist more since my dx than ever. I don't know if it is the nature of getting older, or all the chemo I have had damaging the teeth. Hmmmmmm

I think it's the nature of getting older. Everything creaks and cracks.
