About capping to my tooth
I had done root canal to my booth tooth . Now I want to place a cap. I went to a nearby research centre, professor or doctor recommended me to pluck the back teeth . If I go for capping food may struck at the back tooth and may cause infection... This is war he is saying to me. I am unable to take a decision . But when I treated for root canal doctor didn't said me about plucking of adjacent tooth.

the research Centre doctor is right.  you need to remove your wisdom tooth before going for capping of both your root canal treated teeth. Please visit your dentist & get it done. Hope this helps

Hello, Yes, you need to get the impacted last tooth/wisdom tooth removed before getting your crowns done.No need to panic as this area heals by itself post removal with the soft tissues covering the gap. Regards DR SUMAN MAKAM

As your last tooth is the wisdom tooth which is not in the right position and is impinging on the treated tooth sideways. SO its advisable to get the last tooth removed before getting cap on the other so that it may last longer.

Dear Practo User, As you can see in your x-ray, last tooth i.e your wisdom tooth is not in a proper position. It is always advisable to get it removed to prevent further complications. Regards

Go for extraction of your wisdom tooth as your doctor advised. It will help your 2nd molar to stay longer in your oral cavity.
