Tooth broken at the gum line. Solution

My recommedation Garry, its to get an xray before extracting that piece.
Healthy roots can be used to perform a procedure called, Post+Crown. A tooth broken by the gum line its not a 100% extraction, there is always options.
If your root its healthy and haves all integrity, can be used after a endodontic therapy.
Consider that before making an extraction, and a dental implant in a few months, you will save time, money, and the most important a natural tooth.
