My dentist suggested a crown on a tooth in the back of my mouth with a large filling. It has never bothered me before, but he said the tooth could crack and then eventually need a root canal. I have been doing some research and have heard that the crown could not work and I may need a root canal after having it anyway. Should I really mess with a tooth that is fine now and risk complications or leave it alone and maybe suffer worse conplications?

  • If the cavitry is wide but not deep and there are no symptoms like pain then you can go for the crowning otherwise go for root canal treatment and then get the crowning. If the cavity is really very big then it is advisable to go for capping otherwise the tooth can fracture and even pulling out becomes a problem. for more information on root canal treatent you can visit the following link on our website......
