i had problem of cavity on both sides of the teeth and this problem was between the joints. then i got filled from dental surgeon but it was not successful because teeth joints were not covered properly. due to this my two teeth on both sides were infected and infact lost. so suggest pl any good solution because i am only 42.

  • If the decay is between the joints and it is not being filled successfully then you can get dental crown on these teeth. Normally when the decay is at the joining of two teeth then both the teeth are affected and they have to be restored properly but if decay is much then success of restoration is not very good in such cases. In this case if root canal is needed then root canal is done and then teeth are crowned otherwise sometimes without doing root canal treatment the crowns are given to save the teeth.
