I'm 26 and already have 11 rootcanals, 8 of them have had to be repeated, many fillings, 2 bridges and a never ending amount of work that's needed. Im at the dentist every 2 months or so. My biggest issue at the moment is that i have had an abscess in between tooth 21 and 22 for the 3rd time now. The root has been treated twice and when i went to see the dentist last week he did confirm that the root canal treatment looks good...

I need root canal on one of my back molars. My dentist has said she can do it on the NHS for 53.90 but because she is a generalist and because the surgery doesn’t have the right equipment she estimates a 50% success rate. She says it would be better if I went private but this will cost about £650 and will have 80/90% success. What should I do?

I have a deep rooted absess that antibiotics won't shift. It isn't painful. I have been referred to a private dentist for root canal but his prices start at £650 and they have advised it could be up to £900. I am being charged £90 just for an assessment when I have been referred by my dentist. Am I being fleeced? Looking online and speaking to others, £500 seems to be the going price?

I've recently had an inlay in the middle of a back upper molar (accounting for about a third of the tooth). Initial pain and sensitivity following inlay fitting has subsided a little with bite adjustment but I am still unable to chew other than really gently without pain. My dentist advises root canal, saying that in drilling out the decay and fitting the inlay the nerves have become irreversibly inflamed as the inlay is now v...

Hi, I am an NHS patient with a crown (upper right 7 I think, with no tooth behind it). Last week the crown broke so I went to my dentist who told me that as the rim is left he can rebuild the crown. Last year I had an abscess above this tooth, which was due to be extracted by the dental hospital, but by the time I got an appointment, the abscess had cleared and the pain had gone. At the time I was told it was due to a failed r...

When I was 9 I had a bad accident and smashed both my two front teeth. This left me for many years experiencing lots of painful treatments including root canal treatment. When I was 18 I was referred to a dental hospital where I received new root canal treatment and two crowns ( I think). It was brilliant and has lasted me 15 years nearly with no problems at all. About 3 months ago when I have a terrible cold I started to get ...
