    If u have a healthcare card a lot of hospitals with dental clinics do emergency treatment for things like that. I have a broken wisdom tooth and I feel your pain!

    Have you called and told them you are in significant pain? I'm really surprised they wont do emergency treatment. Hope you can get this sorted soon.

    It may not cost a fortune, i broke a tooth recently and thought i would be charged heaps but it was around $120, not cheap but not a small fortune. I got it fixed the day it happened also.

    If u have a Uni near you with a dental school, often the students do work on patients, over seen by a qualified dentist.

    (I'm going to my appointment this week and sh!tting myself, my teeth are disgusting, gappy and rotting-thanks pregnancy- I have such a fear of the dentist because I'm embarrassed by my teeth)

    I second Dental school.

    I'm a hard case, my phobia of needles triggers my epilepsy, the second the drill goes I'm out of there, so I have to be restrained and *heavily* drugged.
    I got my "snaggle tooth", which was one rotted out canine, fixed for $50.

    It was brilliant work, very cheap and they were simply lovely.

    They're usually final year dental students, and my procedure was overseen by two qualified dentists, so I was in safe and experienced hands.

    I was quoted $160- $200 removal and $230 to fix. IF that helps as a rough guide I know everywhere is different but where I am is generally expensive. The tooth is my front and looks shocking but can be fixed
