I need a dentist

I need a dentist. I've broken a tooth and it probably needs taking out and replacing. I'm very nervous about dentists.

Does anybody have a rough idea of cost and whether the dentist can sedate you should you wish?

Thanks in advance.

Instead of sedation you will likely get a local anaesthetic. You can see some prices here:

Extraction of a tooth 670 - 2500 depending on the complexity. An implant will be a few thousand.

If you have personal mummer then go to your local tandvård place. They will accommodate an emergency visit.

If no PN then go private, not much difference in price.

Whatever you do, don't go to City Dental. They are butchers. The worst dental place ever.

Hej!

I probably had something similar a couple of months ago, part of my tooth just came off. I went to the local folktandvården.

Everobody there were very nice, they repaired the tooth and I paid roughly 3500 because they had to cleaned my root channels first. If you are registered with Forsakringskassan, they returned you part of the costs but you must go over 3000 SEK.

Talking of dentists always brings to mind that sketch on TV with Les Dawson as the dentist giving an anaesthetic to the patient, only sticking the needle in his own leg instead.
Now THAT would be a dentist to avoid.

Best of luck any way. biggrin.gif

Here's a link for good emergency dental care in case you still are looking:

St. Eriks

I've used them twice before I signed up with a dentist in my neighborhood. Their prices are the same as a local dentist unless its a emergency visit after 7 pm or on a weekend. I think that they will use an appropriate amount of anaesthetic, especially if you describe your concerns.

I think you visit the local dentist. There are a big directory of dentist. It was helpful to you for searching a best dentist.

I think after almost two months he would have gone by now.
