I have 6 cavities and a tooth that is broken in half.  What are the dangers of not pulling the broken tooth and not filling the cavities?

Decayed teeth: If you don't get the cavities taken care of, soon the nerve of those teeth will be involved causing pain and infection and then you will need more complicated treatment. Same with broken tooth. If not taken care of, it will rot further and can cause abscess and infection. The infection can also spread in your body and heart. So the best is to see a dentist. Your health starts in your mouth. ...Read more

Are teeth weaker or looser after having a root resection performed? A root of one of my teeth is fractured, and i've been told i'm going to need a root resection. If one of the roots of a tooth is removed, will that tooth then be weaker from that point on

Are teeth weaker or looser after having a root resection performed? A root of one of my teeth is fractured, and i've been told i'm going to need a root resection. If one of the roots of a tooth is removed, will that tooth then be weaker from that point on

I : I presume you are talking about trying to save a molar, probably an upper molar. When the structure or support for part of the roots of a tooth threatens the entire tooth , it is sometime possible to section a root away and save the remaining roots. This is not an ideal scenario, but the technique has worked for a long time and when the tooth is carefully maintained and not under a heavy biting force it can work well. Root resection reduces the bone support for the tooth and yes it can make the tooth feel loose, but if you want to keep your tooth a little longer it is worth it. A more common treatment these days would be to remove the tooth a replace it with an implant. Dr neil mcleod dds dentistry that lasts - quality that counts. ...Read more

I have a gum pocket on the outside of one of my molars. A wisdom tooth is starting to surface behind it. Could the wisdom tooth be causing the pocket?

This pocketing may or may not be a problem that should be examined by a professional. It could be at risk for food impaction and subsequent infection. Have a professional provide a oral exam and explain your options and any risks. Good luck :) ...Read more
