Broken molar teeth

One of my molar teeth has broken. As per X-Ray, the roots are intact and fine, but the upper part is missing. I do not feel any pain in that region. What treatment would you advise other than extraction and implant?

Hello!! As a Root canal specialist I would always like to save teeth,especially the molars,as they are functionally very significant. It all depends on the amount of remaining coronal tooth structure available for us to reinforce/rebuild the lost tooth structure,after the root canal procedure.If very little tooth is remaining,we can still do post and core procedures folloed by crown placement. If the entire crown of the tooth is missing then removal and replacement with either an implant or a bridge would be a better option. Regards

If your remaining portion of the tooth is sound and intact then its definitely possible to save it with root canal, later by post and core build up,followed by a crown. Final decision Depends on clinical examination by your dentist. Visit as soon as possible to avoid further damage of your remaining part of the tooth as it may break due to chewing forces.

Difficult to answer without xray , How much parts remain will determine the treatment Intact root without any crown part is unable to save Intact root with infected or affected root canal system can be saved with rct and cap Intact root with intact root canal system only simple restoration
