Misled by dentist Watch
Summer last year I was really suffering with pain in one of my teeth, I went to the dentist with the expectation that I would have it removed. The dentist said he thought the tooth could be saved and advised me to get a root canal and that it was the same price as an extraction anyway. I said okay and ended up spending two hour long sessions there having the treatment which was fine, until I went back for my checkup in November. He then says okay now which crown shall we put on, the cheapest being almost £300 on top of the over £100 I had already spent on check ups and the root canal itself. I'm a bit too socially awkward to cause a scene so I just said I couldn't afford it and left. The more I think about it the more miffed off I get because if I knew the overall cost was probably going to be close to £400 id have just told him to get it out in the first place. I'm now stuck in a position where the tooth is still causing me bother but I don't really want to go back. What can I do?
