I had a root canal on the same tooth, then one half fell off, then the other half, so it needed a crown, which cracked, so needed another crown, which came loose, was cemented back in, came loose again and I swallowed it (sounds a bit like a castle built on a swamp). Was told root was too cracked for another crown, so just had the lot out. Year later and I don't miss it, barely notice it, but do tend to chew more on the other side.

I had four molars out on the same day 4-5 years back. All rotten/needed removing (wisdom teeth crowding them out..). My dentist said "I can have a go myself - though I don't usually do them, or I can call in Mr Molar - he is £100 a tooth though".

Mr Molar (it turned out) was a dentist who specialised in molar removal. He was built like a prop forward - and after the requisite local anesthetics I sat down in his chair - and by pressing the tooth hard sideways near the base, he removed all four in approximately 20 seconds with no pain, tools or yanking of the head etc.. Incredible. I now have gaps in my molars but going fine.

Decent hourly rate that; £400 for 20 seconds work!

It's not the 20 seconds of work, it's all the years that have gone into perfecting that 20 second performance.

Part of my tooth broke on Saturday- I have a number of molars that have massive fillings (most done when I was 19) in the middle of them. In recent years the remaining sidewall of tooth has broken away on some, necessitating a crown. This oneís probably going to need the same.

Anyway, I thought I was being good not going to the dentist during the pandemic (because I had no issues whatsoever) but it turns out theyíve dropped me as a patient as I havenít been for more than two years  :'(.

Does anybody have any beta for getting in at an NHS dentist in Sheffield? All the waiting lists are 18 months or so so Iím looking at having to go fucking private.

Thereís usually emergency options available at hospitals if itís an issue that needs dealing with ASAP. Not sure what the deal is in Sheff but thatís the case in Leeds.

Not sure how many you tried, but when I had to get signed up with an NHS dentist a year or so ago I found a big list and just phoned around until I found one with availability. Took 20 or so calls but got there eventually, and there was quite a few places left to check in the list.
