Is it necessary to extract my tooth and get an implant?

5 Rating(s).


Posted on By Larry Lazinsky In Implants

Good afternoon everyone,

About 10 years ago, I had a large cavity on my upper left 6th tooth. I got treatment on one of the roots and had a silver crown inserted. For the last few months, I've had a bit of pus discharge from the gum above the upper left 6th tooth. I went to the dentist recently and was prescribed antibiotics for the infection. I also had scans taken and the dentist advised me that the upper left 6th tooth and roots need to be completely extracted and that I need an implant. I have no pain in the tooth and I am scared of having this procedure done.

Could you please kindly have a look at the attached x-ray scans and provide your independent opinion on this matter.

Thank you very much.

Most likely you need an extraction and implant.

Most likely.

Either extraction or retreatment of root canal with a questionable prognosis.
