Question:
I am experiencing a painful nightmare on my upper left side of my mouth. #15 has root canal/crown; #14 just had crown prep but I believe needs root canal; #13 has porcelain crown with root exposure; #12 has been prepped for crown, but I believe needs root canal.

Instead of putting lots of money into 2 more root canals and 2 more crowns, should I be considering dental implants up there? ...Visitor from CO

Answer:
We do a number of implants and we do a number of root canal treatments on an ongoing basis.

My basic philosophy is that if it is possible I would suggest that you try to keep your natural tooth. It is much less involved to keep your natural tooth if there is enough tooth to work with.
