whats involved and costs in root canal of back tooth lower jaw

I have 2 massive cavities in 2 molars on the left and right of my lower jaw I think I need root canal treatment and a crown on both. Just looking for a rough cost of treatment . I realise the molars have 3 roots generally so am I right in saying the total treatment per tooth


1.Root canal of 3 roots
2.Filling
3.Crown

you might just need a filling - go to
your dentist and have them check them out. Dont let fear or diy dental advice on possible costs keep you away -if you lose back molars and your teeth shift thats the end of steak for
you. Could be as little as e100 each. Get them checked by a professional.

Are you crazy, if you can save you teeth do, the only reason you would not is because you cannot afford it. Would you chop off a finger or toe if you you could save it at the expense of next years holiday?

Its a slippery slope and having crap teeth is a choice, and you will regret your decisions as a cock sure young person in the future when your toothless and wise.

A root canal and crown will be 1500 to 2000 euro depending on who does it and the quality of their training and the materials they use. A little more money spent usually give a good increase in predictability.

Yep cheap root canals and cheap crowns to be had there. Unfortunately time off work, travel expenses and lack of aftercare to be had there also. I am sure they will find 10 other crowns to do to make it worth your while, so it will only cost 10 grand, but it would have been 15k here for treatment you dont need, done in the space of 3 days without any regard for healing or standard cautious dental practice. Remember there are a bunch of cheap dentists in ireland that will undercut any figure you think of. Dentists generally know the value of their work mind you.

There is no easy way out of dental expenses, pay now or pay more later. Yeah it sucks, but this is the position you are in.

typical scare mongering response. Your a dentist or dental student no doubt. Your trying to use the word cheap to make it seem that dental treatment in Hungary is inferior or down right shoddy. Just because something in another country is cheaper than this rip off country doesn't make it inferior. Everything in Hungary is cheaper , a night stay in a hotel,a visit to a GP, a meal out, a taxi ride the cost of living in Hungary is less that's why its cheaper and the standard of treatment is renowned around the world. Theres only one reason Irish Dentists spout this scare mongering bull**** its because they are being hit in the pocket. If they had their way they follow the cash and feck off to Australia like the Irish Doctors

You sound like an excellent candidate for Dental Tourism. Plenty of hungarian dentist in Ireland charging Hungary prices, you could go there either. A lot of people make a lot of assumptions about dentistry and as soon as I am called a scare monger I am out and I will save my advice for those willing to listen. Its your gob do as you please.

You asked a question and didn't like the answer and lashed out.

Your assumptions that all treatments are equal couldn't be further from the truth.
