Recently I have been getting dental work done through Medicaid at a local dentist. My dentist was doing my second root canal and I was informed that a file broke near the root of my tooth. She showed me the x-ray and the file was really small and near the root of my tooth. Since I have Medicaid she refered me to a endodontist who accepts Medicaid. We went and got x-ray done but they said we had to wait for approval. Well we called in and found it out it had been denied and they couldn’t remove the file and finish the root canal. Out of pocket cost is around $1,000 and we can’t afford that. Is it possible for my general dentist to just bypass it and finish the root canal.
