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.

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...

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...
