What are the pros and cons to electively (no margin cavities) remove old porcelin fused to metal teeth crowns for new ones? Could a tooths root split?

Not likely: of course, it's always a possibility, but root splitting is not likely, as long as when the crowns are being cut off, they are fully cut through, down to the tooth, before they are removed. Really, unless you have decay on the teeth, there is no need to remove the old crowns. Unless you don't like the look of them or the porcelain has chipped off. ...Read more

My wisdom teeth are developing in my nasel cavity, how are they going to remove them?

Very carefully: Instead of your nasal cavity, you probably meant to say your wisdom teeth are developing in or close proximity to your maxillary sinus, which is common for upper wisdom teeth. Your dentist or surgeon will remove the teeth by a surgical approach to expose and/or uncover the wisdom teeth, and likely place sutures to close the incision. ...Read more

Can a cavity be fixed if its between two back molars, without having to remove the tooth?

This is easily handled by drilling through the biting surface of the tooth in order to reach the decay and then restoring the tooth with a filling (or crown if extensive). If we weren't able to easily fix this problem, most people would have almost no back teeth. ...Read more
