I have a crown over a tooth, which was treated by a canal a few years ago. While I was flossing, the tooth broke into two and the crown fell off. The dentist glued the crown back on. He said if the tooth will cause my any problem, it will have to be extracted and I will have to get an implant to replace it. The tooth seemed badly broken but we will wait and see how it goes since it is not giving me any pain so far.
I went to two dentists to inquire about implants. The first dentist said I don’t need to get implant, he can fix my tooth with a crown and a post. The other one said, I would need a bone graft done before putting the in. I am quite confused now. Which treatment method is better? Any suggestions? Please help me to decide! Thanks so much.
