I currently have 1 tooth that is a bigger cavity and the rest of all my back teeth have cavities. I was wondering if root canals were my only option. I also would like to know if there is a way that i could have all my teeth extracted and dentures placed in, is that my choice or the dentist? Also i am 22 years old.

  • At the age of 22 it is always advisable to save the teeth. So if possible get all the root canal done. Getting extractions done and going for dentures is not good approach at this age. So schdule an appointment with your dentist and get xrays done to find out whether you need root canals or not.
