    If have an infected tooth - is it an option NOT to pull the tooth and bear with the pain & sickness?

    the federal guideline for Medicaid has determined that emergency dental coverage is OPTIONAL - that right - states are NOT required even for a tooth pulling! The state of Arizona is penny-wise and dollar foolish for not paying for a tooth pulling - but when the entire immune system is under attack - pays for the emergency room bill of hundreds of dollars.

    Is this smart fiscal planning? Is Arizona and other states that do not provide emergency tooth pulling akin to the United States becoming a third-rate nation of toothless sick people slowy dying from easily treatable conditions?

    You can take an anti-biotic and rinse your mouth with hydrogen peroxide several times a day but don't do it for more than a couple of days.

    The tooth is going to have to be looked at sooner or later.  It isn't as expensive as a root canal to pull a tooth so, if you don't have the money, I guess you need to find a friend or relative to borrow the money to do it.

    Canada has health care but not for teeth so it's not just a problem in Arizona.
