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, ...

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...

Hello, I have got one of my tooth root canalled. That was four years ago. I had pain recently and the XRay revealed that there is an infection. I consulted a NHS dentist. He said I have to consult a 'root canal repairing' specialist and the charge would be approximately £350. He was not aware if I have to additionally pay for the crown. I followed the dentist's suggestion (I have no other option) and taken an appointment with ...

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...

I have had root canal on nhs but it has failed. I asked the hygienist if I could see x-ray and she immeditely saw the problem. The tooth curves at the bottom and he could not reach this part with instrument. my question is- surely he could see from the x-ray and tell me to go private where they have better instruments. I now have to do this but am cross that I was not given this information. I would not have had this done with...

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...

Hello, I saw a private dentist after a toothache; the decision was that I need a root canal on the 3rd tooth before the end on my upper jaw. I was given a quote of £575 for the root canal treatment + costs for the filling after the treatment. Does it sound right or it's too much?

Hi there I had root canal after toothache on my bottom molar. It never settled properly, not painful as such, but sensitive and flares up on and of. More on than off to be fair. The dentist took another X-Ray and said there looked to still be some decay around the bottom of one the roots, the one he had to open at the bottom to clean it. So it seems he wasn't able to remove all the decay with his instruments. I was referred to...

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...
