Broken tooth that had RCT a few years back

Arghhh!

Was eating my dinner and about 1\4 of a molar came off! It was in a tooth that had root canal treatment about 3 years ago. They had filled it with a permanent white filling and it was sturdy. No complaints!

The tooth is part of my smile. Albeit right at the back but it is definitely part of my cheesy grin. Just.

What if they take the tooth out? Or would they just refill it? It is still very sturdy! I can't wobble it. Or would they crown it?

I have been told all NHS treatment will be black! Arghh. So going private and it is going to cost me loads.

So pissed off! I wanted my savings for something useful. Not to repair a flipping tooth

Any dentists out there who can advice if I'll lose my tooth?

I had a problem with my tooth years ago and had it filled after root canal treatment but ended up having it crowned so hopefully they'll be able to crown yours.

Sadly mine is coming out next month as my previous butcher dentist didn't remove all the root and I'm still having problems. I could have had it redone but as we are talking thousands (specialist treatment, not standard root canal and crown) I'm having to get over my vanity and lose the tooth!

I hope you can get yours sorted and it's not too expensive!

Well,

Argh, stupid auto refresh.

I had my appointment! A crown will do.... For £776!!!! Can I shop around for dental treatment?

The crown itself is £450! Gah. I knew it would be expensive but I didn't expect it to be THAT expensive. None of our local dentists are taking on NHS patients.

My DP didn't have one til he broke his, he got registered the next day at one, what area are you in? He paid £200 ish (I think) for extraction, root canal and 2 crowns
