I have read all the threads I could find on getting dental treatment in France and they have reassured me that it sounds like a doddle and I am not concerned. One little question though. Does anyone know the correct translation for "root filled" in the dental context?

Thanks

No, but if the dentist knows his salt, he will know if you require a root filling - or if you've already got one!  And an x-ray will definitely tell him what's inside your teeth.  The dentist my OH saw with a severely broken tooth seemed to recognise straight away that he'd had a root canal filled - so I wouldn't worry!

Thanks!  The even better news, for us, was that it was all free of charge.  The dentist only did what he considered emergency treatment, leaving a proper repair to our home dentist, and as a result didn't charge us anything at all.  He was a dentist in Millau, recommended by the campsite Les Peupliers, at Riviere sur Tarn, and we were very pleased by the whole process.  The site rang at 8.45 am.  We could be seen as the first patient at 9.30 - so we drove straight down, and went straight in with no waiting.  His treatment was completed by about 10.00 am!

I have to admit to an aversion to dentists, who I have avoided as much as possible for the last nearly 40 years. Ironical because I worked as a dental nurse for 3 years for a darling of a dentist when I was in my teens.

I had a root filling done a couple of years ago which I now think is going wrong. This morning I tried to make an appointment with a couple of local practises before we go on holiday in a few days time and they couldn't help. I would go back to the fellow who did the filling but he's gone back to South Africa.

Well if I end up in a French dentist's chair I only have myself to blame, I have never been a regular patient! I am certainly not as anxious about it since reading of your OH's experience.

Time will tell.

Traitement du canal radiculaire is root canal treatment.
Le remplissage du canal radiculaire is root canal filling.

Last August, I tried to get a dentist appointment without success in Picardy. The campsite reception were brilliant, and tried several local dentists for me, in the end I got a doctor's appt which worked out OK, as I needed antibiotics for an abscess. I wouldn't leave it too long, if you need dental treatment.

Oh well it sounds like it might not be quite so plain sailing.

My experience was in August, I expect dentists like holidays too! You may be luckier in May/ June, fingers crossed.

latecamper, when you get back promise me you'll find a dentist who advertises "nervous patients a specialty". My OH left it and left it and now has osteomyelitis of the jaw, which is beyond painful. I know it's rare, but it's not rare if it's you iyswim.

In 2004 I saw a French dentist as an emergency. He took x-rays and decided that I had a root underneath a crown that was causing the pain. He then spent about 45 minutes getting the root out, and then took more x-rays to make sure that he'd done the job properly. While I was thinking about the cost of this and imagining the worst he presented me with his bill - - 28 euros.

Took my daughter to French dentist in Albert near the some. Diagnosed with an abs.cess on the root and prescribed anti-biotics to help it clear until own dentist back home could be seen. Total cost including prescription ad chemists was about 20 euros. Got most back on return but make sure you have the NHS Card (old E111) with you. No problems, even the local female traffic wardens took us in hand and found the dentist for us, even accompanying us in to make the appointment

Thank you all for your helpful advice. Hopefully if the worst happens and end up having to find a dentist he/she will be as good as many of the ones mentioned.

At the very least it would be an experience!
