My brother (30yrs old) has a broken tooth which dentist has said she can't fix (they had planned to do root canal/crown but they say they can't as not straight forward due to way tooth has broken.)
They have said NHS will only pay for extraction. But if he wants a false tooth then he would have to pay nearly £500 privately. Alternatively, they have also said they can refer him to private practice to see if they will be able to repair it which might cost even more than a false tooth.
Does anyone know if what they are saying is correct? Are these his only options? Any help would be much appreciated.
