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

My crown has a hairline crack. I have no pain and there is no infection. My dentist said I have to re-do the crown WITH a root canal. Is this really necessary, or is my dentist trying to make more money.

I had a root canal filling when in Dubai. 4 months later it is still giving me minor pain and twinges. I have seen my own NHS dentist now 2 times who has tried reshaping my mouth so the pressure points are not on that tooth and another tooth that is also hurting (possibly referred pain). I have been told that part of the instrument broke off into the root filling when the filling was done. Could this be causing my continued to...

I went to see my dentist a few weeks ago because of some discomfort I was having. He said he wasn't surprised as I had a large abscess, took an X-ray and gave me a prescription. I went back to see him a couple of weeks later and he said the root(s) of the tooth were infected, and I had three options: 1. Have root canal treatment, which might or might not solve the problem; 2. Have the tooth extracted; 3. Leave it, and monitor ...

I cracked a top molar 2 years ago and dentist recommended root canal filling because on Xray the root was dying/dead. This was done but the tooth remained sensitive so root canal was redone about 18 months ago and has continued to niggle ever since - no real main but ongoing minor discomfort. I have been back multiple times and he has filed the filling/tooth to adjust my bite. Just before Xmas a white headed pimple appeared on...

I have a molar which has died after toothache.Visited NHS dentist expecting root filling but told not neccessary as no longer in pain and no infection so tooth could just be left.Denied that risk of abscess if left untreated.Is this really right or is dentist just wanting to avoid carrying out root treatment.If so, would I be better trying another dentist?

After an unlucky spell with a previous dentist and a deep filling, x-ray's today suggested I will need root canal treatment on one tooth. The dentist quoted around £250 nhs.... £750 to get it done by him but privately. I'm finding it a difficult decision with the difference in money. He suggested the private option would use better equipment and would offer better results long term. I have a clean bill of health otherwise with...

I have a root filled tooth that has darkened over the past 15 years. My dentist has taken moulds for a veneer to be prepared which has now been fitted today. Perhaps my expectations were too great, however it seems quite rounded and more raised than my teeth, and the colour seems dull compared to real teeth. It is acrylic which my dentist says was the technicians choice of material for my tooth. I would apprecitate any comment...

In 1999, just after I finished University, I had NHS root canal treatment in a canine tooth at a dentists near Leeds. The dentist did not inform me of any of the risks of this procedure. Following the procedure my tooth died and went black. What came to light during an x-ray check-up in February was that the dentist had broken the bit of the drill in the tooth and not told me about it. but what I only discovered in February. N...

Hello, about 5 years ago, I was diagnosed at King's walk in clinic with cracked molars and was told I needed composite fillings which the NHS would not fund. When I say cracked teeth, I mean they are cracked right down to the base of the root. I have since had two composite fillings privately. The second one broke/cracked within the first week. Can I ask where I stand with regards cracked teeth requiring composite fillings and...
