I didn't have a dime to my name when i was 16 and i had my first abscess
...i went to a low income facility and showed them i didn't have anything but i needed my tooth
gone. They said it would cost me $50 and i sat in front of a gas station and bummed money until i had enough and went back and got it pulled. Also, if it hurts, take an aspirin and break it in pieces...put a small piece in your tooth. It kills the root but at this point, who cares. It will take away A LOT of the pain.
