My back left molar has been giving me problems for years. I cannot chew on this side without pain. A few months ago, I had a and a temporary crown on this tooth. When it's time to get the permanent crown, I told my dentist that it is still hurting. He told me to give it a few months more. After five months, it still hurts, much more when I press on it or when I touch it with my tongue. He said we will extract the tooth. I told him I want an to fill in the gap. He then suggested that I can have braces instead. They will move my crowded teeth to close the gap from the extraction site. I can't decide now. Should I go with the or stick to the implant? Please help!
Thanks a lot!
