My dentist has advised me that I need a root filling and crown to a lower left back tooth. The tooth in question has a large temporary filling which accounts for 80% of visible "tooth", the remaining 20% is actual tooth material. My question is firstly why does my dentist suggest he does this privately when it is available as part of the NHS contract? and secondly why does he tell me that only silver crowns are available on th...

I have just had the second stage of my root canal treatment done. My dentist did his best but I have deep roots and its a molar with 3 roots. He showed me on an x-ray afterwards that in one of the roots he could not reach the root canal filling all the way to the top of the root having to leave probably about 1mm unfilled. He explained that trying harder could result in breaking through the root canal which I have had 13 years...

I have a very good dentist and have no reason to complain. However, I have a very old Crown on one of my 2 big front teeth (central incisor?), from 30 years ago. When I had an abscess back then, my dentist told me that I should have had a root canal filling, as my current crown is only being held by a bonding agent, and the crown post isn't held within a 'filled' area which means it could come out at any time (it did come out ...

I have a dilemma with a tooth which had root canal treatment four years ago, done privately (and expensive!). All has been fine so far, but on a routine x-ray with a new dentist, it shows there is infection on the tip of one of the roots/canals! I have no symptoms whatsoever. My dentist has said this can be treated by redoing the one canal and replacing the crown. (expensive!) But has also said it is a dormant infection that m...

Hi I have had a biodentine put on a deep cavity, close to the root, a month a ago. It has chipped off at sides twice already that required fillings to seal the gaps. Should I consider taking biodentine out completely and having root canal treatment? thank you

I had root canal treatment last year on one of my back teeth with a cap, the cause was a hairline crack in my tooth which in turn caused pain when I ate and drank. The treatment has been a complete success. My question is how much should this treatment have cost me on the NHS. I paid £204, but on reading information (and following a statement on the news this morning) I feel that I may have paid too much. If this is the case, ...

As a child I fell and damaged my front top tooth. Over several years it gradually discoloured until 3 years ago I had a root filling. I was advised to wait for a year before having a crown to ensure the tooth had been successfully filled, which I did. About 18 months ago I had the tooth crowned with a nice crown at a cost of about £1000. Over the weekend I had some discomfort in my gum above the tooth so visited my dentist tod...
