Yeah now I got payback - went to a new dentist yesterday after months with a sensitive tooth pain that kept coming and going. Surprisingly no swelling or anything whatsoever. Did xrays and checked my teeth over. Only two that were urgently needed to be attended to - the one with the filling that fell out and the sensitive one - turns out the sensitive one had an abscess in it and so he cleaned it out and put temporary fillings until I can get to my NHS dentist to register at the end of November. Even the medical system here can suck but if you really are prepared to find a place that is taking on NHS registered patients, it is really worth it in the end because the medical care they provide is far much better than in SA's government medical system. Even the waiting to see a doctor is just under an hour, more or less. In the overall, I may just have all my teeth pulled out and get dentures fitted because in the last 2 / 3 years in dental care, I have had more problems than I should have - now I am starting to believe that my previous dentist doesn't know what they are doing because generally rebuild teeth are really a bad idea long term. Even the alternative options are not cheap either, specially for implants and crowns but dentures they usually last you a good long time, unless you break something.
