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...

Yesterday I had a lower first molar extracted which had been root canal filled one and a half years ago. It had caused me intermittent pain and I had felt unwell in a vague way since the day it was placed. No abcess ever formed, but often the gum was red, slightly swollen with a bit of recession. In between the molar and pre-molar also hurt and looked mildly inflammed. Over the last few months I have felt so exhausted that I h...

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...

However the tooth is now causing problems again. It is throbbing and sensitive plus pain is spreading above gum line to roof of mouth. My dentist took x-ray two weeks ago and everything looke...

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 been advised i need re-root treatment. it is going to cost nearly £500. I have had no discomfort from the tooth, I did have a very painful abscess under the tooth about three years ago which is why i had the first root treatment done. If I decide not to go ahead, partly because it is not 100% guaranteed success Is there any risk to my other teeth because of the underlying infection in that tooth? Is it advisable to go a...
