How diferent is the technique used by an endo specialist and a regular general dentist here in the USA? I am asking because my 11 year old fell down form a motor scooter and fracture incisal edge of #9. She had a bonding done the same day and an X-ray. Now, 3 weeks later, the tooth is looking dark and they are recommending root canal . I don't have dental insurance so I am trying to find wich way to go.... the specialist is charging about 1000 and I guess it would be less expensive if done by a regular DDS.... What would you do?
