I need to have a root canal done on a tooth but its taking the office forever to get
the approval from my insurance & I'm getting really worried
because their's red above the tooth :*(
Their's no pain but about a week or 2 ago the gum was irriated.
Now it's just red.
Is their anything I can do awhile I wait?? :*(
I have been emailing my insurance everyday & it's still taking them along time
to send the dental place the approval letter.

I'm not even sure if I really need a root canal done even though
the dentist said so because once she crowned a tooth and after she did it
she's like oh that tooth wasn't as bad as I thought it could have just been filled

But the insurance dental experts looked at the xray and approved of the root canal
& their's red above that tooth so I'm sure it's needed to be done.
What all do you think??

Also could the dentist just fill the tooth with filling after the root canal??
Or should it be crowned too??

If they shouldn't just fill the tooth than why not??

My insurance approved of the root canal and the crown.

It's a very noticeable tooth so I really want to get this work done soon
What should I do about my insurance taking so long??
Email them alot everyday??
I already do :*(
I don't know what's takng them so long they should be on top of these things.

Please reply anyone!!!
I'm really freaking out :*(
My anxiety is really high right now :*(

Crowning is always a better option after root canal than filling. So I personally feel that you must go for crowning.
