Today one of my molars (on the top right) cracked when i was eating. The tooth is still intact but it is loose on one side. I previously had a root canal on this tooth about 3 years ago. I just wanted to ask what treatment I would need to fix this and how much it will cost? I am an NHS patient.
Thankyou

Dear Rosie,

This seems to be root filled tooth that’s now fractured. This is a very common scenario. Given that one side is loose this is a very significant fracture and the treatment will either involve a crown ( NHS fee £204 ) or if the fracture is bad enough you may have to have the tooth extracted. The precise treatment in this case can be discussed with your dentist.
