User Level:

Posted by: Mashhood  (8 years ago)
my left jaw lower last tooth was root-canal few years back during process one side was broken so filling do not get support from side of tooth and as i eat things pressure on filling make it loosen and eventually recurrent infection.

dentist say that this is last tooth and if i remove this tooth there is no tooth to support the gape and eventually second to this tooth will loosen and move towards gape that will come after removing this last tooth.

my solution to save me from recurrent infection is to remove this last tooth and after some time second to this tooth will loosen and tilt i will remove second tooth too and then get a tooth implant for these two teeth.

what is your advise kindly guide
thanks in anticipation.

1. You cannot replace two molar teeth with one implant.
2. Lower first molars usually do not drift backward once the second molars are extracted.
3. 2nd molar implants are hard to do.
4. A fracture of the tooth above the gum does not make the root canal fail and become infected.

My advice is to seek a second opinion about the cause of the infection. Save the tooth if you can. Replacing them via implants is much more expensive. If you cannot, do a graft shortly after the extraction, and an implant later.
