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.

Can I ask where I stand with regards cracked teeth requiring composite fillings and...

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 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...

I had a tooth (2nd going back after lower right canine) root treated and crowned several years ago. This has now apparently failed according to two dentists and the area on the outside of the tooth is now infected. The 1st dentist offered a choice of extraction, £600 specialist re-root treatment or a "recommended" procedure involving drilling through the bone to clean out the infection. This latter option I was told carried a ...

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...
