Crown came out...help!

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: josherman  (7 years ago)
Hi, my crown came out and my dentist says the tooth (which had root canal) now needs to be extracted and replaced with an implant. Is there no way to save the tooth? I think she said there is too much decay. But I'm in no pain. What do you think? Grateful for any advice! Thanks.

Pain or the absence of it tells one nothing about whether a tooth can be saved. I suppose the decay is under the gums. You might ask your dentist if it could be saved with a crown lengthening procedure.
