  • It isalways better to save your ow tooth rather than getting it pulled out and then going for artificial tooth. If the decay is not much that is your dentist can save it with root canal treatment then you should go for that. The dentist wil take the X-ray and then will decide whether the tooth can be saved by root canal treatment or not. After root canal treatment you have to get the crown above that. But if you go for the extraction then either you have to go for the bridge or the implant.
