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...

Hi, I was chewing some gum and either part of my tooth broke off or a crown (I can't actually remember) my dentist has told me that my only option is to pay £650 for a root canal "under the microscope" or have the tooth removed. Would a standard root canal treatment on the NHS not be sufficient? Last time I went to the same dentist he told me I would require a root canal, and that they were not provided by the NHS - therefore ...

The bottom front tooth (the one on the right, at the very front of the set of bottom teeth). He has given me two options; NHS and Private.

why is it, nearly every tooth I've had root canal treatment on ends up infected?? I had a filling fall out on Monday 19th March (the majority of my tooth on this one had collapsed last year) so I was left with a gaping hole. Didn't have tooth ache or anything but I was just scared the whole tooth would break with having no filling. I went to my NHS dentist on Wednesday 21st March who cleaned out the tooth with a drill and refi...

Ihave recently been told by my dentist that I need root canal treatment. He said he would refer me to a private Endodontist. On querying how much it would be I was told £625!! (for one tooth). This seems rather a lot to me, is this the normal sort of cost? Also, can I ask for a second opinion and could he have referred me to an NHS doctor.

Only one have a crown, the rest are the original teeth with filling. But since then, I always have some pain sensation on 2 teeth not very shap, more like a dull pain and it comes and goes. The teeth are not cold and hot sensitive either. A...

I had my top 2 front teeth crowned and also a bridge of 4 teeth fitted 25 years ago. I have had little trouble during this time. I recently experienced pain and following a X-ray my dentist has found that the bone in which my crown post is inserted is crumbling away. He says the options are, dental surgery where he lifts the gum, cleans and repairs and does root canal treatment. (its 50/50 whether this will work at all) or the...
