February I had a root canal treatment on a lower right side molar (third from back without a wisdom tooth) and have today been told I have a fracture which means the only option is to remove the tooth.
The X-rays don’t show the fracture but I have had pain when biting and with cold air for a while so am not surprised by the result and I was warned it was a possibility.
My NHS dentist has suggested being referred for a dental implant after the extraction. Can you please advise how I go about finding a good surgeon in the North West as I read on one of your posts it is important to go to someone who will use quality implants? How do I know though? Also, I have been reading about material being inserted when a tooth is removed to encourage bone regeneration, so is it best to have the extraction and implant all done by the same private dentist or can I have the extraction done at the NHS one and think about the implant later?
