Dental Question

Hello.....I'm seeking views about what is the best treatment for a dental problem I have, it's going to involve root canal treatment and I'm tempted just to extract the tooth and be done with it. Surely this is the least painful and cheapest way to go. From what I've heard root canal treatment is extremely painful and is not cheap, even in Thailand? What would people advise? And any suggestions for which dentist to use where I might get an unbiased opinion on the best course of treatment?

Hi, my wife can't understand why I'll spend 30000 baht on getting root canal treatment done when she gets any problem teeth pulled out for a fraction of the price. I must admit I can't really explain's just what the dentist recommends!

Hello, I have had 2 lots of root canal treatment carried out and although painful, I have had no further problems since. If you pull the tooth out altogether I understand that it is possible to have complications and continuing issues.

I think the key is to find a good dentist that you trust. Once you are sure the advice given is based on best practise and not financial reward then you can be sure of what to do!

Couldn't agree more that a good dentist is key....any suggestions?

I have to disagree with Crickit, my experience is the exact opposite, my one experience with root canal work dragged on for almost a year and caused me a lot of pain until I had the tooth yanked right out. Since then nothing. Root canal treatment is a good way for the dentist to make money in my opinion.

If I had had every tooth pulled out for which I have had a root canal, I'd have nothing left but a mouthful of gums...

ok, looks like we have a few differences of opinions here! So I'll have to put my dental problems in the hands of a professional and I can't put it off much longer!!

Still waiting for any recommendations for a particular dentist?
