Yes that is correct. Wisdom teeth are a different story all together, and require specialist treatment. That particular case of 90 degree orientation is far from normal. So i understand why you needed to sign a disclaimer, because it is hard to guarantee 100% success.

My point is that doctor referral should be standard before major interventions. Usually it is done only for more complicated procedures. Private practice doctors just want to charge you another procedure, and they give you few questions only. Dice's case sounds to me as a slightly complicated, because if infection, so i understand why his dentist wanted doctor's opinion.

Also an RTG scan is often requested so the dentist can see how is tooth implanted into a bone. Molars aren't normally in contact with nerve, but we are all slightly different.

Every dentist seems different nowadays when one of my teeth split I was passed from pillar to post, went private after the second infection, who instead of pulling managed to save the tooth the only thing I had to do was run a course of antibiotics first, no mention of doctors referral.

Well I consulted a private dentist only a 5 minute walk from my place and they said I should take my course of antibiotics until the massive swelling, Just like the guvs video a while ago, Goes down, Then they will do a root canal, Disinfect, Clean etc... and fill it with permanent stuff, Going to cost £300 in total which includes aftercare but worth every penny.

£300 is cheap man (for private) mine was 700 for the canal and 450 for the gold crown, like you said worth every penny, nothing worse than tooth pain.

It is good that they can save it. It will be a lot of work but worth.

I think dental pain is one of the worst pains we go through in life. It can drive people to madness or far worse.

I count myself lucky I haven't had to endure the same issues many of you have.

One of the main reasons I have problems now is that when I lived and worked in Germany, The agency I was working for messed me around with paying me, Took them 8 weeks and in that time I had to survive on 1 apple per 2 days and water, I looked pretty close to Christian Bales "The Machinist" character which had long term health implications.

1 day I was sitting in my apartment and half of an incisor just fell out, No decay or anything, Pure white, It just fell out.

It is truly awful. I am a biter. Not grinding, but biting down hard. It's autism, apparently. Any way, eventually they break and then I bite more the more it hurts. In this pic I had 6 teeth removed. They immediately put in the denture, but I never wear it any way.



I actually like having teeth pulled now. Every time one gives me any crap I just have it pulled. That pain is unabating. Deffo among the worst tbh. I had another 5 pulled out on the next visit, and have had two others pulled since. All my wisdom teeth are gone too.

How did you let them get that bad? teeth biting/grinding wears enamel away but that still shouldn't resort to having so many removed? Teeth are usually incredibly strong, unless you are gorging on high sugar substances as well? or when you say biting do you mean clamping down on things like Pen tops/plastic etc?
