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.

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...

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...

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.

Have root canal treatment, which might or might not solve the problem; 2. Have the tooth extracted; 3. Leave it, and monitor ...

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, ...

After initially needing a filling for a small cavity, I had to go back to my dentist three further times in the next 2 months; to get it refilled due to it being too high, extreme sensitivity, and a fracture on the front face of the tooth. I've now been told I need root canal due to an infection under said filling, which I am being referred from my NHS dentist to a private practice who have quoted me £695! I believe this is no...
