I have a broken tooth (#3 Molar). It's bad. It goes down to the gum in the middle and the dentist says it has a "crack" in it.
It was a botched root canal and is probably beyond the help of a cap.
I need an expert here. Extraction is a horrible idea in my opinion. The tooth still works for the most part, and isn't giving me pain. It's presense aids in the chewing of the opposite tooth on the bottom. If I leave it the way it is hard to clean (more needs to be removed, or filled). But NOBODY is offering me ANY other options.
I've seen 3 dentists already and am seeing a 4th tomorrow. Can you give or recommend ANY alternative to full out, counter-productive extraction???
I have pictures.
