Hi. Root canal treatment is the best solution to save the tooth. It can be done by conventional technique or laser. Success depends on removal of complete infection and enamel strength. Both the above techniques are equally same but laser is expensive. Fillings can be done with GIC, composite or miracle mix. All are equally good. Regards

Success if root canal treatment depends on the complete cleaning and filling of all the canals in the root upto their apex and on the restorability of the tooth( it should not be too broken down or fractured). After the rct,the dentist will suggest an amalgam (silver) or composite restoration followed by a crown which can be metal,porcelain fused to metal or zirconia . any of these can be done
