Root Canal and Crown or Implant?

I would recommend having the crown .... #DrSarahThompson #STL
I would recommend having the crown removed. Anything that is under the crown, (i.e., the need for a root canal or extraction and implant), will be fully visible with removal of the crown. I would suggest having the crown removed, then while you're in the chair, the dentist can examine the site and then take new xrays to figure out what is going on. If you are in need of a root canal and crown or simply an extraction and implant, you'll be able to make a better decision. I hope this helps and just click "save" under my name to have me answer more of your questions in the future.
