How much will it cost to remove an infected cracked/chipped back tooth without insurance?

I live in california and my chipped back tooth that has its gum exposed became infected and now my front bottom lip is a little swollen (not as swollen as it was 2 weeks ago) and the severe pain went away too. I'm still having watery stools and have temps at 99 - 100.....

    Dental insurance does not cover very much treatment.

    Most people are better off saving the money from paying for the insurance and cover the treatment costs themselves (unless they have an employer that is subsidizing the costs).

    "I'm still having watery stools and have temps at 99 - 100....." sounds more like covid than an abscessed tooth.

    You need to get on antibiotics to clear up the abscess and then your tooth can be pulled or repaired.  Western Dental will pull the tooth for a couple of hundred probably.

    $300 US - better go see a dentist before the infection gets into your brain
