Any Weekend Dentist or Emergency Denist to intro?

I think i am having a feeling that my upper 2nd molar tooth filling is giving way soon as i felt a sudden slight "jerking" feeling after biting something not very hard. hope it can last till Monday before i go and see my dentist. But if it starts to drop off and start to pain(as the filling is a big one)), is there a weekend or night dentist that is good and affordable to intro? Thanks.

is it the root canal tooth you mention in the other thread? or the last molar with 1/4 missing?

if you are in pain, just give your usual dentist a call and tell him/her that you are in pain. some will be kind enough to squeeze some time to see you

get well soon!

is not the root canal tooth. Root canal tooth is the lower left last molar. This is the upper left 2nd molar.

Anyway today i went for my root canal treatment already. The specialist help to check my upper left 2nd molar that i said i cant feel pain if i bite something on it, she confirmed that the filling has chipped off and refer me go back to my dentist this thursday (hope i can tahan till then).

Worts of all, after today CT scan, the specialist found that the current tooth that i am going to do root canal, one of the side the bones in the gum are lower than normal. She stop halfway and ask my option whether i want to carry on or go back to GP to extract it. If carry on, then my own dentist might refer me to gum specialist to do bone grafting and then crowning. Already do halfway, i opt carry on.

anyone knows how much is bone grafting?

(This year really pok liao, hope my other 2 problem tooth can tahan for the next few years before it give way).

waa sounds expensive leh. RCT specialist here, Gum specialist there. CT scan also not cheap hor?

implant bone grafting, my GP is $500, PFM crown is $800. Gum specialist confirm higher? but i dont think they do crown? Assuming everything specialist is more exp than GP. Hopefully u can save that tooth, u spent so much on it.

Yes, my pocket this year big hole. RCT + CT scan about $1750. cannot imagine plus bone grafting and crowning. The RCT specialist said only guarantee this tooth can only last 2-3 yrs without bone grafting as due to biting and rubbing movement that will makes it give way on the side that has lesser bone.

hopefully the periodontist can help you out. better get it done asap, dont waste that $1750 spent down the drain. If not you got to do implant liao. actually implant cheaper but I can understand why you want to save it so do take good care of it!
