I just found out that I need to have a root canal and a crown. To make matters worse I am being told that I need to have the root canal done by a specialist. That although they did the root canal before for me on a different tooth. They are telling me that they can not do it on this tooth. I do not understand why, a root canal is a root canal. What is up with that?
My insurance does not cover for me to see a specialist. I am also being told by the insurance company that I may max out my anual limit with the crown since I have already had work done this year. I called around and right now I am looking at around $1600.00 for the root canal and crown. I feel as if I am being pushed out by the dental office and the insurance company is not helping me at all.
I have been talking to a friend of mine that says that I should just go to Mexico to have the work done. That she had dental work done there and it would be only about 400.00 -600.00 to get what I need. I live in California so going would not be to much of a problem since I can drive there. I am just thinking this may be the best way to go. Wondering what others think about this.
