Removal of some bone ????

Mar 15, 2017
HI, I visit my dentist every 3 months. Recently I noticed some sensitivity from my front crown. I had a X Ray, and it was discovered that my crown is decayed inside (still white outside), but unfortunately decay has spread to the bone above the tooth.
I am to have both the crown and some bone removed. I will be having this done at NHS dental clinic and not my dentist.
I have requested sedation (which I wouldn't have done if it was just the tooth I was removed) will be having my appointment to be assessed early next month. I will admit, although I am normally quite brave, this is putting the wind up me a bit. I will have a temp. false tooth, then a new one in 6 months when the bone has healed. Has anyone else had this problem on here ?
