My dentist said my No14 molar had to be pulled. He had originally recommended root cancal and a crown but found too much decay on one of the roots to do the crown, so he said "pull the tooth"! Now he says Medicade will not pay for a bridge so
due to missing molar below #14 I have no way to grind food on my left side!
Question: Could a root canal have been performed to save the tooth and
prevent having to pull the tooth, thus leaving me with a tooth to chew with on my left side? I want an honet answer - any help appreciated.
