Hi all.
First time to tje Dentist in 6 yrs. She suggested upper back tooth to hane the root removed as the filling was very close to the nerve.
If I have this procedure under the NHS its £70 but they cant guarantee it will work. If I habe it privately its £1000 and they use special microscopic equipment with a higher success rate.

I'm totally confused about what to do and there was little information coming forward. I've looked on you tube and it looks gastly.

Any suggestions go private or NHS? I don't need it ASAP either.

Do you have pain on the tooth? Or did she just suggest a root canal based on how close the filling is to the nerve?
