Hello, It has been several years since I have been to the dentist as a result of not having insurance. Now I found that my lower left tooth (4th from the back) has decayed slightly and has exposed some of the middle of the tooth it kind of looks like a square with a corner missing where the remaining tooth looks like a square with a hook at the end. I was wanting to know what treatment (for at least this tooth) would be and as well about how much approximately this would cost me. Thanks for your time.

  • If you are not encountering any tooth pain or sensitivity than mere filling will do but i would suggest you to get an X ray done. If the Xray shows exposed tooth, than RCT is the only choice of treatment...

    Regarding the cost of filling, it depends on various factors like cost of living of city, dentist wether a general practitioner or a specialist. Also it depends upon the material used...So, keepin all these things in mind the filling ranges from $250 to $500 dollars...for more info on cost of dental treatment you can visit the link...http://www.identalhub.com/article_average-cost-of-dental-filling-449.aspx
