Root canal treatment. I had root canal treatment on Friday on the NHS and the dentist told me she had managed to remove two nerves but not the third one and that I would have to go to a root canal specialist. She made an appointment for me and I have found out it is going to cost me £900. Is it normal that a dentist cannot finish the procedure?

General dentist some times may not be able to find the nerves, because of the tooth anatomy i.e..the roots are not in a right position or maybe the canal is calcified (nerve is obliterated) . In such cases a specialist is called for the treatment. He will be an expert only in root canal treatments, so he will be able to solve the problem. This is very common, no need to worry.
