Decayed teeth

My brothers molar teeth is badly decayed and half of it is broken. One of the doctors are saying that it needs to be completely removed and it cannot be replaced. We have consulted two doctors. Another one said that it can be fixed and can operate a root canal with a cap on it. Please advice about which one should be better and also the cost in both the cases.

It is always recommended to save the tooth as far as possible. I would suggest you to save the tooth because there is no comparison of a natural tooth with the artificial tooth. Moreover, natural tooth maintains the level of jaw bone.

A tooth has to be saved till the last resort.. From your description it's very difficult to advise you as need to see the xray as well his clinical picture.  if you can post those it will be helpful to give you the right advise but my only advise to you will be to save the tooth in any case.

Respected Sir,                   An Xray is required to be done to ascertain the extent of damage. You have many options for treatment now. If the tooth is too much destroyed by the decay then in that case, extraction is a must followed by replacing that tooth by dental Implant or fixed bridge provided the clinical situation is favourable.           If we can still save the tooth, then Root canal treatment can be done and dental post is a must to save the structural integrity of the tooth to give a dental crown.But, first we need to see the xray to decide any thing.                                         Regards
