    I had my back top tooth done. i can't remember exactly how much it was... think around $1000-$1500. It was a a few years back now.

    Where abouts in Bris are you? Central Dental at Mt. Gravatt is really good and quite cheap for a dentist. I think there root canals start around $800.

    It sounds about right. I had My molar done and it broke before I got the cap. I ended up having it removed and when it happened to my other molar I just got it removed WAY CHEAPER

    I wish my dentist had suggested a root canal , he removed my top rear tooth 2 weeks ago which was a good tooth but it had an absess underneath and I dont think he could be bothered as he gave me no other option

    I wouldn't worry about it. I've heard many a friend say they've had constant 'fixes' on their root canals especially in the back. I myself went through a root canal only to have the back tooth pulled many years later. And I look after my teeth. I've also read a lot of research about root canals not being healthy for your immune system. It was the first thing my friend had removed when she underwent treatment for cancer. Because they essentially trap bacteria in the tooth. I wouldn't worry if it's in the back!!!!!

    Yep mines at that back and i had to pay to have a crown put on because half of the tooth fell out.. thats was another $1300.
    When i first got it done the dentist advised against pullling it out because apparently removing your very back tooth can screw up your bite and cause even bigger problems (can't remember what they were though i think one was in regards to gums?)

    Yeh your right Tam , I did have infection problems for awhile because of the tooth and it was attacking my glands and ears on that side of my face all of which cleared within days of it being removed as well as having no more pain from it.
    Harvest I think that might depend on your bite , i got the very last tooth removed but it turns out the 2nd tooth is the one that lines up with the bottom one in my mouth. I was worried about the remaining teeth forming gaps but the dentist assured me (lol i asked about 10 times) that it wouldnt happen. He better be right!

    Thats really interesting about the problems you've had with your ears. I've expereinced constant ear ache since my teens which is when issues first started with the tooth i had the root canal done on. I wondering if there is any connection? Doctors have failed to find anything wrong and have suggested it could be an issue with my Jaw but the dentist never really came up with anything... hmm.. makes me wonder anyway.

    As for my bite my last top and bottom teeth match up and i won't ever grow wisdom teeth which was apparently another reason for why i should have had that the root canal done as opposed to have the tooth taken out.

    I would just extract but that is me, I had a root canal done(cannot remember price) and it exploded(cannot explain it any other way) I am not trying to scare you but I regret getting the canal done. I am booked in for a examination and quote for removal and hoping they will extract my other tooth over another canal as I honestly cannot afford proper work. I am getting dentures and will just be smile-less for a few months after lol

    I have shocking teeth though and have had a lot of work done, my teeth are clean and not yellow but buggered.

    I had the same issue with my top right back molar..For me I went to the dentist also and to have a root canal done it was going to cost me around $2000.00 and I would save a bit with PHI. To get it pulled costed $33.00 It was a simple decision for me.. Honestly I don't miss the tooth either.

    I had root canal on a molar last year and it was $1900. I went to a specialist and it didnt hurt and he seemed excellent. then got a gold crown which was $3,200. So it's an expensive tooth. But I'd lost a molar on the other side and if I'd have lost this one it would have made it hard to chew food properly.

    I only have hospital phi so none back. But you can claim it on your tax.
