my tooth broke but I can't afford the dental repai

A couple of weeks ago I notices that one of the four peaks of one my molars was broken, but it was a Sunday and the mortgage payment had just come out of the bank, so I had mere pennies left for milk and bread for the rest of the week. Anyway, it didn't hurt or anything, so I figured I could stall until next pay day. That was wrong, though cuz the next day another 1/4 of the tooth was missing. It must have flaked off in my sleep and I must have swallowed it.(so does that mean it is in my stomach?) I guess I grind my teeth in my sleep or something. Anyways, There was a different emergency and I find that I am still broke as broke and another hunk has shorn off the tooth. Now it is sharp and has cut my tongue and it is cracked across the bottom of the rest of the tooth. It is starting to hurt and to bleed intermittantly. I'm pretty sure it is getting infected too, cuz my jaw hurts. Sigh. I guess I have to take the day off work tomorrow and ask them to bill me or something, eh?
