Thank you for calling me this morning the information you gave me was very helpful. The additional problem I have is concerning my bridge. It is a four tooth bridge. I have a back tooth and an eye tooth as an anchor. The bridge is loose and I believe is cracked around the eye tooth and this is where it is more loose. I have some slight throbbing like a dull ache at times. The dentist has told me that if it is loose I will have...

Hi. I had my second premolar and first premolar done by my dentist. I wasn't advised that those teeth are not to have white fillings on nhs and I endured treatment where a silver filling was placed in. After discovering what was done to me I asked if I could have the white filling but was told white filling isn't covered by nhs. I paid £180 to have both teeth refilled with white filling. I wonder if this trarment should have b...

30 years ago I had 4 crowns, the upper incisors placed to reduce gaps between my teeth. One of the four was on a post due to the original being broken off as a child. A few years ago one of the pre canines had the root split and had to be extracted. I was given a plate for the missing crown along with a replacement molar for an extraction I had. All was fine until a couple of years ago when I had to have 3 upper left pre molar...

I'm an NHS patient. My dentist fitted partial dentures but I had to return 3 times as they felt much too tight. Each time they said "we daren't take too much off and they need to be tight" but I never had a good fit. Since then I've had extractions and teeth added tothe partial and now they do fit - they properly fit into the roof of my mouth. The problem is, the tooth next to the denture (crowned) developed a fracture, the fr...

Hello. On the NHS website it states that a band 3 charge covers everything in bands 1 and 2 and above - so covers crowns and what not. My dentist told me there is an obligatory 3 month wait after my root canal filling before a crown would be fitted. I am now being charged separately for the crown - band 3 on top of the band 2 already paid. If the crown fitting is then a band 3 charge on top of the band 2 charge already paid th...
