Visited For Root Canal Treatment (RCT)
I do not recommend the doctor
I will not recommend her. I visited her an year back.I had an infection in my already RCT tooth. though she did initial treatment well but at the end when it was a time to fix a cap , she suggested to use old cap only which i agreed. but after the treatment old cap did not fit at all and i told that her immediately that its paining also but she did not bother.it was saturday and the weekend turned to be hell for me because of pain . i called her but it was useless. monday i went back to her and to my surprise she started shouting at me . instead of taking care of my pain she was busy in satisfying her EGO because she could not take it that it was her fault( she could have suggested for a new cap if old one is not fitting).she left my treatment incomplete. eventually i had to search for another dentist which took one week as my case was complicated and had to bear the pain for a week because of her and i had to pay again for new dentist.

First of all thanks for your feedback, albeit its 1 year from the date of completion of your treatment. For your benefit with regards to the case and its outcome:
You came for a consultation for your failed root canal treatment(RCT)with upper right 2nd molar that was done by a dentist practicing at your native place. I had explained you options to remove or re- treatment and possible outcome of both well before starting the treatment. As you opted for Re-RCT,
I removed your old cap intact with great care & difficulty and performed Re-RCT. Technically, there is no guarantee that the old cap would refit. Still I tried my level best to re-fix it. Capping was not possible without compromising retention if new cap was given on existing tooth since there was extensive tooth structure loss & tooth height was less. To add to your pain & agony were other factors like your alternative treatment therapy (Reiki) that you were going through, could have altered your body response/flared your existing condition.
As your immediate family members have been visiting me for treatment for past 6 years(Recent visit was sometime in Jan-Feb 2017). Expecting better & open communication, if you still need to discuss.
