Preserve the molar: If your molar is the first molar, you should try to keep it since it is the most important tooth in your dentition in term of posterior support, chewing function, and effecting the esthetic and longevity of the front teeth. Any other molar and financial hardship is a concern, extract them.

A 40-year-old member asked:
Is it possible that tooth pain can make it look other teeth are hurting too?

Very possible: Sure, it's called referred pain. However, make sure that it is referred pain and not just other teeth that also need treatment. Discuss this with your dentist to be sure.
