Hi doctor,

I am dealing with a big problem. Over the years my teeth have been slowly decaying. I was not big on brushing and now my molars are completely messed up. One of them is basically gone with a very dark color hole in it. The other molar is slowly getting to that point and it is about halfway cracked. So, what should I do exactly?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Root canal treatment followed by a metal post in it and ceramic crown over it will help in saving the tooth. If you cannot afford the treatment, then the only solution for it is extraction.
  • The last molar tooth can be filled easily using composite material.
