My #5 on the left is dead and cracked on the inside very close to the gum line. i had a filing done on that tooth years ago. How do I save it?

  • For saving this tooth you will have to get root canal treatment of this tooth done followed by post and core and crown above that. If the tooth material is less then may be dentist will suggest about crown lengthening. If the crack is vertical and tooth cannot be saved then you may have to get it pulled out. This can be advised only after clinical exam and xays. for more info on cracked tooth you can check this article.... http://www.identalhub.com/article_signs-and-symptoms-of-the-cracked-tooth-206.aspx
