Yeah it's free if you're under 18 I believe (defo if you're in full time education or training)... I had a root canal started today and it wasnt as bad as I was expecting- better to go sooner rather than later though!

Yes all NHS dental treatment for all under 18 year olds/ under 19 if you're in full time education is free. Whether the dentist offers to do the root canal treatment under the nhs is a different matter

well, my dentist said that they can't do it under 18. So I have to wait until I'm 18 to get a root canal. But until then I'm stuck with a filling on my front tooth that comes out every 3 weeks.

In some cases the roots of your teeth may still be immature and not fully developed. Because of this your dentist may refer you to another dentist to do the work, but an NHS referral is still possible and should cost you nothing
