You have options: "my tooth is almost gone" does not give me a whole lot to go with. An x-ray and exam is necessary to properly evaluate your options.

Need root canal txt.: It means the tooth is no longer vital. In other words, the nerve is dead. You will need to have "root canal" treatment.

Hole in my tooth I have a hole in my tooth the 2nd one from the back and it feels like the hole is almost covering half my tooth what should I do should I just get it extracted the way I want to or let a dentist save it?
This: This is a decision to be made between you and your dentist. I would recommend that you discuss **prognosis**. As an example: "if I save my tooth, what is its 10 year prognosis? " this is asking what the likelihood of failure is over a certain time period. If he says that after saving the tooth and doing your root canal, crown lengthening and crown procedures the tooth has a *poor* 10 year prognosis then you have information to compare other treatments and costs to. Removing a tooth typically gives you four follow-up options: 1) do nothing - leave a space, 2) a removable option like a denture, 3) a bridge, 4) an implant. These options potentially have a different or better prognosis. All carry unique risks, benefits and costs. Compare your options taking into account prognosis and cost of the options. These are hard decisions but together you and your dentist can figure out whatâ€™s the best for you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If you've had pulpitis for over six years, what would the outside of the tooth look like? Is it still possible to save tooth with Root Canal?
I'm confused by your question. Pulpitis is an infection of the nerve of a tooth and is usually very painful.
If you have a tooth with an infected nerve, it needs to have a root canal. If there is enough tooth left to restore, then the root canal can save the tooth.
See your dentist or an endodontist (root canal specialist) for an examination. ...Read more
I have had a root canal about a year ago I believe I might have a abcsess I'm scared they will pull my tooth is there anyway to save the tooth?
Root canal treatment has a high degree of success but sometimes some teeth that have had root canal treatment need to be retreated (root canal redone) and this usually takes care of the abscess.
The abscess could also be a result of a fracture in the root of your tooth. If this is the case then the tooth will need to be lost.
You need to have this situation evaluated asap. ...Read more
