I have most of my left molar missing, and a massive crater, the pain is unbearable. My right molar has a small crack and a chip missing. With my left molar, will I need surgery to get it removed?

  • It is difficult to say without doing clinical exam and xray but if the tooth is almost lost and the crater is formed then you have to get it pulled out by surgical method. However you have to discuss this with your dentist. He will see the xrays and see the amount of bone loss and decide then whether bone grafting is required along with that. Regarding the right tooth, if crack is there and chip is gone then you may require root canal treatment followed by the crown. for more info on tooth extraction, you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-tooth-extraction-27.aspx
